Before beginning therapy, I did my research to find a therapist in my area. Upon calling a few professionals, all I would receive was poor phone etiquette and lack of interest in the patient. I then stumbled upon Olga's information on Psychology Today, and decided to give her a call. From the first phone call she was extremely caring, patient, and showed interest in her potential clients. I soon set up my first appointment.
Before therapy I was coping with various sets of problems ranging from relationships, family, friends, and anxiety. I was nervous and began my therapy with an optimistic attitude. Unlike other therapists, Olga does not just seat you in a chair for forty five minutes, and let you explain your problems without providing feedback. She is extremely engaging in conversations, and lets you see problems from a variety of perspectives. She is always motivating you to dig deeper to the root of the problem. Every session differs a little bit then the one before, and Olga uses a variety of methods to really understand her patient and also always has a positive attitude in order to encourage the patient to continue to come to sessions in order to improve upon their problems.
I have been Olga's patient for three months, and I can definitely say that I have absolutely no regrets from attending weekly sessions. It has not only been the best investment on myself, but it has helped me grow and discover things about myself I never knew were possible. I got to not only understand myself better, but also improve my life in so many ways. I slowly began to notice the negatives in my life, and changed them into positives. My self esteem and confidence has sky rocketed, and I have never felt this good about myself in a very long time.
Within a few short months my life did a 180. I not only improved my relationships with the people around me, but I also began to worry much less, and get rid of the negativity that was once present my life. I would not have been able to make these improvements if it wasn't for Olga. If I had to give one piece of advice it would be to take the time and actually give it a try. Be patient, and give it time. Changes do not happen overnight, but with the correct guidance you will begin to notice that you will improve upon yourself, and learn new things about yourself. There is always room to grow and its never to late to make a change in your life. I am so glad to have met Olga and actually give therapy a try.
