Ilona Menshova


7 years of experience
Solution oriented

I help people improve their ability to cope with life by utilizing behavioral tools that foster personal change and growth. I focus on fostering a positive, non-judgmental environment while building trust. I build positive connections with my clients- sometimes through humor and laughter, other times through empathy and compassion. I tend to be more solution focused while assisting clients on maximizing the use of self. As a person who has worked in health care for several years I am able to assist clients in the utilization of community resource in order to achieve their optimal level of wellness.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a structured, goal-oriented type of talk therapy. It can help manage mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, and emotional concerns, such as coping with grief or stress. CBT can also help manage nonpsychological health conditions, such as insomnia and chronic pain. Received extensive training at Beck Institute.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness is being aware of internal thoughts, feelings, and emotions, as well as external surroundings and situations, without automatic responses such as judgment or stress. Mindfulness therapy is a type of talk therapy that focuses on learning how to be more aware and to reduce automatic responses.


This type of approach builds on clients’ strengths, seeing them as resourceful and resilient when they are in adverse conditions . It is also client led and centered on outcomes, getting people to affect change in themselves.
