Winds of Change Counseling
Dear Winds of Change Counseling Clients,|
The health and well-being of our clients and staff is our top priority. Rest assured we are closely monitoring the outbreak of the Corona Virus (COVID-19.) We are utilizing the guidelines and directions of the Arizona Department of Health, the Maricopa County Public Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control to guide and inform us through this process. We rely on the expertise of these agencies on issues related to public health. We will continue to monitor this matter closely and will react as appropriate. While risk is low for many of us, everything we do to care for ourselves and our family will help the community at large.
What we are doing:
What you can do:
Telehealth Q and A
What equipment do I need?
To participate in Telehealth appointments from your home, you will need one of the following devices:
Desktop computer with a webcam, speakers, a 2.5 GHz processor, and 4 GB of RAM
Laptop computer with built-in webcam and speakers, a 2.5 GHz processor, and 4 GB of RAM
Tablet device with built-in webcam and speakers,
Smartphone with at least iOS 10 or Android 6.0
You will also need an internet connection that is at least 10mbps. For optimal results, a reliable, high-speed internet connection with a bandwidth of at least 10 mbps will minimize connection issues and provide the best quality.
How should I prepare my space for a Telehealth appointment?
Identify a suitable room that is quiet, private, and free of distractions. To keep background noise to a minimum, make sure to close any doors, shut windows, turn off the television, and keep loud pets in another room if possible. Consider hanging a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door to avoid interruptions.
Is Telehealth private?
Just like a face-to-face appointment, your Telehealth visit will be private and confidential.
Will the appointments be recorded?
None of our appointments will ever be recorded or stored.

Have you thought of trying counseling before, but felt unsure of the process or felt like you're not an "emotional" person? As a therapist trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) I help to unlock the mystery of what our emotions are trying to tell us, in a logical way. I thrive on working with couples who feel "stuck" in their relationship or are facing infertility, infidelity, stage of life hardships, retirement, fostering, adopting, and the raising of children with disabilities. I believe that success in therapy comes from the creation of a therapeutic alliance between client and therapist.
As a therapist trained in (EMDR) Eye Movement Desensitization And Reprocessing I have worked with individuals who have been affected by trauma, and can help you to change negative beliefs about yourself and others, into more healthy and positive beliefs that heal from the effects associated with traumatic experiences.
As a therapist of Ukrainian heritage raised in Germany, who has lived in various states throughout the continental United States as well as Hawaii, I am sensitive to the unique needs of immigrants, refugees, and cultural and ethnic minorities, striving to incorporate traditions, religions, and beliefs in therapy as strengths.
