Innesa Russonnik, MA, LPCC, MFTC
I have lived in Colorado since I was three years old. My family and I immigrated to the United States from Kazakhstan when I was young. I can speak both Russian and English, and love spending time with my family whenever I can.
I’ve learned the importance of self-care, so in my free time, I like to do things that make me feel happy. For example, I like to read, stretch, and watch Marvel movies!
“Therapy is the perfect atmosphere to allow oneself to heal, grow, and improve well-being.“
I have a B.A. in Psychology, with double minors in Sociology and Ethnic Studites. I also have my M.A in Counseling with a specialization in marriage and family therapy. Both degrees are from the University of Colorado Denver.
I love creating and improving connections. I love helping others and assisting families in overcoming both big and small challenges. I have always valued well-being and mental health and understand the kind of impact it has on our lives when we are not in a good place. I really love working with couples and individuals and have been lucky enough to gain experience working with ages as young as 7 years old to 60 and up. I’ve worked with kids, adolescents, college-aged, individual adults, couples, and families.
I pride myself on being genuine and caring. I hope my clients feel empowered and gain the confidence to improve their connections with others, and transform in whichever way they need or want it to happen.
I always operate from a systemic lens, a multicultural lens, and a solution-focused lens. I believe every client has more tools in their toolbox than they may even realize, so I will work with you to build off your existing strengths.
“Healing does not have to be only pain and sadness – I like to laugh with my clients and make space for any and all feelings.”
