Dr. Lazarovich has been practicing at Williamsburg Therapy Group for over five years. She recently relocated to California, but continues to work with both new and existing WTG clients virtually via secure video conferencing. She maintains her New York Psychologist License in addition to her California Psychologist License. She is able to offer late evening appointments thanks to the three hour time difference between New York and California.
Please note that while virtual therapy is equally as effective as in-person therapy in most cases, it is not a good fit if you have recently experienced active suicidal thoughts or engaged in self-injurious behaviors (e.g., cutting, burning). If you are experiencing any of the above please schedule an in-person appointment with another WTG psychologist in order to receive the most appropriate level of support.
