Welcome to my practice! 
​I'm Svetlana (Lana) Tikhonova, ​a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
​I offer individual and group psychotherapy for children (4-18), and adults.  I specialize in experiential and creativity-based types of therapy that are helpful for developing new useful skills, new understanding, and a deeper sense of self.


​I can help with:

  • Reducing stress, and developing a better self-regulation

  • Healing trauma and reducing anxiety, panic attacks and phobias

  • Transforming perfectionism and self-criticism to self- support and healthy self-esteem

  • Addressing compulsive over-eating and spending 

  • Recovery after divorce/ separation; parenting during and after divorce

  • ​Overcoming emotional co-dependency and developing healthy personal boundaries

  • Immigration adjustment: Cultural identity and cultural values conflict, ​minority stress, cross-generational issues

  • Life transitions: Midlife crisis, major illness, children leave home, aging, etc.

  • Transformative life coaching online and in-person

I offer a free 30-minute consultation, for you and me to see if I am a good match for you, and in what way I might be helpful.
