About Me

Dr. Novinski has provided psychotherapy in both university and community mental health settings with individuals of varied backgrounds, life circumstances, and mental health conditions. She has also worked as a staff psychologist providing psychotherapy and diagnostic testing for patients undergoing medical rehabilitation (e.g., following a stroke, amputation, major surgery, extended hospitalization, or injury) as well as for palliative care and long-term residents of skilled nursing facilities. Dr. Novinski provides brief and long-term individual psychotherapy for adults. She is experienced in treating depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, trauma, bereavement, life transitions (e.g., changes in career, family, or stage of life), managing chronic pain and medical conditions, and chronic mental illness. She has a particular interest in working with grief and loss and finds those to be recurrent themes in psychotherapy for patients coping with tangible and symbolic losses in their lives. ​Dr. Novinski enjoys working with healthcare professionals and mental health professionals to process trauma in their own patient populations. She also works with these and other professionals and executives to manage work-related stress and career transitions and to develop a satisfying and sustainable work-life balance.
