Professional statement

Ilona has extensive experience working with lesbian, queer-identified, transgender and gender non-conforming folks, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and those exploring their relationship to sexuality, kink, and gender.

She has over eight years of experience in the mental health field, in both private practice and community settings.


Message to clients

With each of my clients, I cultivate a compassionate, non-judgmental, and supportive environment. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for identity exploration, so that you can more fully embody your truth in your day-to-day life. While a sense of progress is integral to the therapeutic journey, we will create a personalized understanding of what growth looks like for you, rather than settling for more prescriptive goals. As a relational therapist, I help people foster deeper understanding and self-awareness, overcome unhelpful and defeating patterns, and build self-esteem.
