  • Irina received her Masters in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco. Since moving to the Bay in 2012, she has been providing support to people from various backgrounds, lived experiences, and multiple layers of trauma. She is open to working on a wide range of difficulties identified by clients, and is LGBTQ, poly, and kink-friendly. Irina has also found a passion in psychedelic-assisted therapy, as well as helping people explore the relationships they have with their drug use through a harm reduction lens. Irina works in a client-centered orientation, focusing on the strength of relationships and looking at healing through an attachment theory framework with an eye towards social justice.

    In therapy sessions with Irina, you can expect that she'll work with you at your own pace and follow your guidance while providing a comfortable space to process whatever feels salient in the moment.
