• About Nadejda Lisencu, LCSW, Intern Supervisor (she/her)
    Aurora & Virtual Sessions

    Asking for help is a sign of strength; you do not have to begin the healing journey alone. As a therapist, I provide a supportive environment for my clients to find solutions to life’s issues in a supportive, non-judgmental way.

    I take a holistic view of therapy, incorporating multicultural and trauma-informed approaches, and work with my clients to tailor treatment to fit their short and long goals. Whether you want to build coping skills, explore patterns in your relationships, understand the possible roots of your current problems, work through trauma, or better understand yourself, we will work together to gain the insight and skills you need to achieve your personal goals. My approach to counseling is tailored to each client’s specific needs and is collaborative. Establishing the therapeutic alliance is key to helping you move through and change maladaptive thought processes and build your confidence in making sound choices. My counseling perspective is to respect each client’s distinctive life journey and personal narrative. I specialize in helping individuals heal from trauma, PTSD, anxiety, loss, relationship issues, and depression, through Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) lens to help desensitize and reprocess negative thoughts and emotional distress. EMDR uses unique techniques to assist individuals in their mental health healing journey. I also help my clients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives.

    As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I completed my Master’s in Social Work at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York in 2016. I have received training in EMDR in 2017 and am currently working towards EMDR certification.
