Mental Health Counseling Intern
Tatiana is a graduate student in the University of South Florida’s Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling program. She holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Florida in Family Youth and Community Sciences. During her undergraduate studies Tatiana completed an independent honors thesis titled 'The Mediterranean Diet and its Influence on Mental Well-Being', which explores the relationship between adherence to the Mediterranean diet and depression.
Her goal is to merge her interest in mental health with her interest in the therapeutic advantages of sex therapy, diet and nutrition, yoga, and meditation. Tatiana is interested in helping people find a holistic approach to their mental health who may be experiencing any combination of issues related to low self-esteem, sexual difficulties, feeling stuck, anxiety, and/or tension.
Stress and anxiety are unavoidable visitors and Tatiana hopes to act as a guide in learning how to deal with personal internal conflicts.
Easy to talk to
Tatiana is so easy to talk to. You can tell that she actually cares about what you are talking about and that she's wanting to help you. I had a hard to trusting others but for some reason I can trust her with all my stuff. I can tell she doesn't judge me.
For someone this young, I didn't expect such wisdom. I was very surprised with her ability to relate to me and to see ways for me to get better. She said so many helpful things that I can't wait to see her again!
Eager and gentle
She is so much fun to be around and has such great energy. We could literally talk about anything. I didn't think I would open up as much as I did but I'm glad I did.
