Get to know me and
Nadya Dich, Ph.D
I am a health psychologist passionate about helping people to make changes that will lead to more peace, balance and well-being. My knowledge about stress and sleep comes from many years of scientific studies. But you might ask: "What is the point in your research if it can't help me improve my life?" I agree, and this is why I chose to go into counseling.
For me, talking to people directly, whether it is one-on-one or in a lecture hall, is the most rewarding and meaningful way to share knowledge and inspire change. So in 2018, I decided to start my own practice Green Light and offer stress and sleep-related psychological counseling and psychoeducation.
HOW I WORK
In my counseling work, I am inspired by latest advances in evidence-based psychotherapy, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction practices. I strive to to stay up-to-date with these developments and constantly improve my counseling skills by attending courses and workshops, staying active in professional networks, as well as through supervision.
Everyone's life situation is unique and valuable. I believe that whatever difficulties we go through, they carry a rich potential for learning and growth. But each of us has our own way of dealing with things. I have great respect for individual differences in opinions, values, and customs and I don't believe in "one size fits all" methods and quick fixes. I like to think out of the box and I am committed to working together with you in order to find your unique way of addressing your challenges.
