Andreya has completed her doctoral training in various settings, including a psychiatric hospital, community mental health, and outpatient. She has significant experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults who have experienced single incident trauma as well as complex trauma. She has had experience working with anxiety, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, relational difficulties, and grief and loss. In addition to individual therapy, she has experience utilizing family, couples, and group treatment modalities and providing parent training. While she has experience treating a variety of populations, her particular areas of interest and emphasis are trauma, as well as grief and loss. She is also passionate about psychological assessment, with an emphasis on personality functioning.
In her therapeutic work, Andreya typically utilizes a relational psychodynamic approach with a trauma-informed lens. Through this approach, she aims to support her patients in exploring the ways in which their early life and prior experiences influence how they view themself, and the ways in which they relate to others and the world. She utilizes the therapeutic relationship with each patient as a mechanism for exploring disturbances that may occur within the patient’s various relationships, as well as to model ways to develop healthy, secure, and meaningful relationships.
Andreya lives with her partner and their dog, Lucy, who was adopted in August 2020 and has made their lives exponentially more eventful. She ranks in at a grand total of 17 different breeds according to her DNA test, so she is quite the unique and spunky girl!
