About me

I am a Marriage Family and Child Therapist licensed in California and Colorado with over 25 years of experience working in this field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, life challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is eclectic, warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Vladimira is a wonderful and patient therapist. She listens to everything I have to say and remembers my issues. She is also very accommodating. I highly recommend Vladimira!

Put simply, my time spent working with Vladimira was enlightening. I struggle with trust and had been sceptical about BetterHelp given the nature of my previous experience. However, Vladimira is so knowing in her craft it felt only right to see this endeavour through. I'm lucky to have met her and even more so, to have worked with her. To Vladimira, thank you.

Vladka is an excellent and very experienced therapist who has a very straightforward style. I have appreciated working with her and always felt safe and in very capable hands. She has a great deal of training and can work in multiple states, I highly recommend her.
