Meet the Therapist
Dr. Vassilia Binensztok, LMHC, NCC
I help people reclaim their personal power from the difficulties they have experienced. We don’t have to be defined by our trauma, anxiety, and damaging relationships. I take the time to hear you as an individual. Together, we will figure out the root cause of what you are experiencing and identify ways you can take back control. Our greatest strengths are often found in our darkest times. I will help you find your personal strengths and become more resilient and satisfied with life.
It’s not just about what happens to us but about how we experience those events personally, based on what is most important to us. I love helping people connect the dots between their life experiences and their personal needs and values to understand how to heal from the past and move forward to a brighter future. When we stop judging ourselves and start honoring our experiences, we can discover so many wonderful possibilities.
I work with individuals, including teens and children. Many couples and families seek out my services as well, whether they are trying to repair the hurt in their relationships or find amicable ways to divorce and co-parent.
As a clinical expert in anxiety, depression, and complex trauma, with over a decade of experience, I have successfully worked with many challenging issues. I have additional trainings in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Exposure Therapy for anxiety, childhood trauma therapy, and Triple-P Positive Parenting.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.

Juno was a goddess from ancient Roman mythology. She served as the protector and special counselor of the state, as well as a champion for women. Juno navigated natural cycles of darkness and light, guiding people through periods of bleakness and sorrow, and returning them to renewed vigor and vitality. These cycles represent those that all people experience in which difficult times, if traversed effectively, can bring new insights, new passions, and a renewed purpose. Like a snake shedding its skin, all people can learn to embrace these periods of change and harness them to produce the outcomes they want in their lives.
Juno Counseling and Wellness is named, not only for the beautiful location where we got our start, but also for the wise goddess that represents our values.
