Professional statement

Kristina Colovic is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor located in NY. Kristina enjoys working with young adults, adults, and couples who want to learn how to better manage their emotions, particularly their distress. They seek ways to cope with anxiety, depression, and trauma-related disorders. Kristina has extensive experience working with refugee populations, the LGBTQIA community, and those who have experiences with drug or alcohol abuse.

Kristina’s approach to therapy begins with a nonjudgmental, empathetic style and the creation of a safe space for clients. She encourages clients to integrate different parts of themselves so they no longer feel overwhelmed by their emotional reactions, which comes from a therapy modality called Internal Family Systems. She practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which are two thoughts-based therapy approaches that show the strength of thoughts when it comes to influencing emotions and behaviors. 

Kristina offers clients the opportunity to talk candidly about how they’re doing, and provides them with support as well as guidance towards tangible solutions. Clients become more self-aware as they work with Kristina, growing their capacity for their feelings and working through their mental health challenges.

Message to clients

My approach to talk therapy is based on identifying and integrating parts of the individual and their experiences to foster self-awareness, practical solutions and advance personal growth. I work with adults on a wide range of challenges from emotion regulation, attachment patterns, grief and interpersonal systems to more clinical issues such as anxiety, depression and trauma related disorders. I have a wide range of experiences that include facilitating group therapy, working with refugee/migrant communities, LGBTQIA clients and individual/family therapy related to substance use treatment.

I believe in an integrated approach to therapy that utilizes CBT, DBT, internal family systems and existential ideologies. My target in therapy is to build a collaborative relationship with the client in the here and now. I aspire to create a safe and nonjudgmental space for people to discover what they need during their therapeutic journey.
