Ilona Hrebennikova, LMFT, MEd, MA

I am a psychotherapist and a couples counselor. I specialize in working with individuals and couples on relationship issues and past relational trauma (trauma that results from abuse or neglect in the context of close relationships and  has a profound effect on a person's development and relationships across the lifespan). What I love about my work is helping people who have been struggling with relationships all their lives reconnect with themselves and others and build happy, satisfying relationships with their partners, family members, friends and other people in their lives.

I received my Master's Degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. I also have a Master's Degree in Education, and I worked as an English teacher in my home country for nearly a decade. This may explain my passion for psycho-education in my therapy work. I believe it helps my clients to feel empowered and make informed choices. After all, my final goal is to help you come to a point where you no longer need my help.

I am a certified Yoga Teacher and a member of the Yoga Alliance. I am also a member of CAMFT (California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists).
