Anya Szumowski, LPC, LMHC
Monarch Psychotherapy, LLC
Hello! My name is Anya. I’m a licensed mental health therapist currently accepting new clients in the Columbia River Gorge.
Despite the joys and beauty in our world, as humans, we also experience pain and struggle in response to life’s many challenges. Whether it be various transitions, significant events, relationship concerns, poor self-views, or the discomfort of anxiety and negative mood, therapy can offer the attention and care we need in navigating our lives. It is here that we can safely explore who we are – we can develop curiosity, awareness, and compassion towards self, while bringing honor to our past and current experiences.
My therapeutic style is engaging and creative, and can be characterized as authentic, kind, honest, and calm. As your therapist, I thrive to build a genuine and trusting connection with you. It is my goal to create a supportive space where together we can uncover the ways you think, feel, and understand the world. Throughout our time, I will provide gentle challenges and necessary tools to help you overcome difficult obstacles, while highlighting your existing strengths to cultivate growth and healing. You will often leave session with a greater sense of self and awareness to the areas in which you struggle, effective solutions, and feeling empowered to create changes that align with your unique values, interests, wants, and needs.
