About the Luncheon Presenter - Olga Prokopyuk, MFT:

Olga is especially passionate about working with couples and watching them thrive - whether they're recently engaged and want to build a strong foundation, or have been married for a while but feel like something is missing. Olga is an eclectic therapist, using a combination of therapeutic interventions to best meet her client’s needs. Olga believes the couple is able to make the most progress when they have personalized tools to aid them. Specifically with couples, Olga utilizes both Prepare & Enrich and the Gottman Method to guide her work. Olga's approach is also guided by the following quote “In order to work on your relationship, there has to be a strong desire to do so and the ability to be open to new ideas and new behaviors.” - Irina Firstein.
