Dr. Prusko strives to provide a compassionate and empathic therapeutic relationship that allows for feeling safe enough to explore and to make sense, together, what may bring someone to therapy. While she practices from a psychodynamic perspective, she is skilled at delivering techniques in a relational manner for those who are seeking new skills for symptom relief. Dr. Prusko’s primary clinical focus is trauma, and she also welcomes treating individuals with depression, anxiety, emotion dysregulation and grief/loss. Dr. Prusko has worked in a variety of settings from hospital emergency rooms to inpatient hospitals to jails to residential substance treatment centers. Dr. Prusko is committed to socially responsible therapeutic practices and understands that we cannot be understood separate from our contexts. She strives to allow space for exploring various aspects of our lives, such as race, gender, oppression and inequity, and how they impact our work in therapy.
