What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including ADHD, Addiction, Anger, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality, Coping Skills, Depression, Domestic Abuse, Grief / Loss, Life Transition, Men’s Issues, OCD / Obsessive-Compulsive, Self Esteem, Sexual Abuse, Sleep / Insomnia and Stress.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

My name is Ilya Shtykan, LMFT; as a young male therapist, I can understand and relate to the struggles and responsibilities young males need to live up to when it comes to family support, decision-making, career issues, and finances.
