Hello! My name is Larissa Rzemienski and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and School Counselor in the state of Arizona. I attended Arizona State University for my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 1998 and Master of Counseling degree in 2001. I also have an M.B.A. in Marketing and Ed.S. degree in Educational Leadership.
I have been working as a counselor for over 20 years, and I have had a wide array of experiences during this time. I have served as a suicide hotline supervisor, probation counselor, tele-health counselor (marriage, individual, and teen counseling), and high school guidance counselor. In addition to counseling, I also teach Master of Counseling college students and I am a yoga teacher. I have worked with clients of all ages, and my specialties include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, meaning of life, grief, and much more. I really enjoy working in the telehealth field, and I have been seeing clients virtually for about 4 years. Telehealth is a great modality for treatment as it provides convenience and various options for services. In terms of the treatment modalities that I utilize, I tend to use Client Centered Therapy, Existential Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The approach that I use for each client will differ depending on the needs of the client. I am available via messenger, phone, or video.
In my personal life, I enjoy practicing and teaching yoga, learning about psychology and history, hiking, hanging out with my pet rabbit, investing, and spending time with my college age daughter. I reside in Phoenix, Arizona.
I look forward to talking with you!
Larissa Rzemienski, Ed.S., M.C., L.P.C.

Larissa is great! She responds to my posts in a timely and understanding manner. She appreciates the stressors of my life.
We have set up goals for our work together that she makes sure I am addressing, and I feel we have done a good job of making appropriate goals as so far, they seem to be topical to what I'm going through each week.
It is nice having a telehealth mental health professional living in my area which I wasn't expecting. Actually, I didn't realize that until our second session.
She hears what I say, understanding me and validates my feelings and what I'm experiencing which is very important to me as that has not always been my experience with previous therapists.
I highly recommend Larissa!!

I’ve seen a few therapists in the past, but Larissa is by far one of the easiest to talk to and the most pleasant to work with! She’s very polite, respectful, a great listener, and she responds rather quickly! I’ve worked with her twice now because she’s easy to open up to and gives great feedback. I would definitely recommend Larissa if you want to feel heard and accepted!

She's so nice and so understanding. She's been so helpful for the last several months and checks on me throughout the week after our sessions to see how I'm doing. She's really so great.

Larissa does a good job of establishing what goals you want to achieve and keeping in touch with a message each day. She also does well with giving plenty of time to speak and making sure someone who has not sought mental help is able to navigate BetterHelp and what therapy is in general.

Larissa is so dedicated to her clients and offers much patience with her practice. I was able to make much progress while working with her, but I especially appreciate how much self-accountability I gained through our sessions. She is truly incredible!
