Tanya Prochko MEd, MFT

Individual and Couples Therapist

ABOUT

Having practiced in New York, Los Angeles, and Jerusalem, I find that people, no matter where they’re located in the world, are inherently good with a strong will to access their inner ability to succeed in this world – succeed in their relationships with others, in their relationship with themselves, in their careers – as well as find existential meaning in their lives.

I specialize in relationships and how trauma affects those relationships.  I help my clients identify how they have learned to “protect” themselves from people and situations that seem threatening to their sense of safety.  I use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches to help them heal from their trauma and begin to approach life from a place of strength and empowerment.  At the end of treatment, clients often feel greater self-awareness and acceptance, less triggers, healthier relationships, and increased coping skills.

As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I help my clients become masters of their thoughts by giving them the tools with which they can identify unhelpful thinking patterns, challenge them, and replace them with healthier ones.  Other areas in which I specialize include mood disorders, anxiety/panic, and abuse.

Although CBT is a highly effective form of treatment for many disorders, it is not always the right approach for everyone.  Each individual is unique, and therapy is not a “one size fits all” process.  I custom tailor the therapeutic approach to the needs of each client.

My goal is to empower my clients to feel confident that they can be their own therapist by using the tools and skills learned in therapy and applying them outside the therapeutic setting.

I invite you to contact me for a free phone consultation, where you will have an opportunity to learn more about how I work and to get a better idea of what to expect from therapy.

GrrrATTITUDE

November 24, 2016

I am grateful for Black Friday sales, I’m grateful for the ability to notice the things in my life that I’m grateful for, and I’m grateful for understanding that gratitude is not a state that is present only on condition.  I can CHOOSE to be grateful no matter what is going on in my life.
