Psychotherapy Services

Wellness is highly individualized. So is our care for you. Working together starts with a thorough assessment/history gathering, followed by developing a treatment plan. This includes identifying your goals and connecting to what makes them meaningful to you, identifying the order for what you want to work on. We also discuss options for approaches to mental health therapy.

As part of mind-body wellness, we address the importance of sleep, movement, gut health, managing pain, and nervous system-autoimmune system interactions. We have a wide network of integrative health and functional medicine referrals to offer when needed in Durham and other cities.

When appropriate, we use somatic approaches including breath work, use of voice, movement, restorative poses and yoga nidra (resting meditation).

Walk and Talk.

Walking and Talking therapy

Walking and talking is an effective way to make progress outside of the typical office environment.

Being outside is an important component to overall wellness, and can be both invigorating and relaxing. Sessions can also include outdoor-based mindfulness exercises to foster awareness and an enjoyment of nature.

Walk and talk sessions are offered exclusively by Dr. Tatyana Kholodkov, and may be arranged as part of individual psychotherapy services and mindfulness training sessions (as appropriate).


Dr Kholodkov was my first choice therapist recommendation for 4 years while I was still treating patients at a clinic near hers. It was an easy choice for me because she was so knowledgeable in the evidence based approaches I prefer including exposure therapy, DBT skills, ACT and mindfulness. This knowledge really came out when she would share clinical impressions with me which caused me to learn not only more about my patients but also more about these evidence based approaches themselves. You don't have to take my word for it though because she was also the therapist my patients liked the best.
