About Me

Eugene Belilovsky, PhD, LMHC, BDiv, CHC, MBACP

Hi! My name is Eugene. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, trauma, or other similar concerns – or if you just want to work on self-improvement – and value a non-judgmental environment and a holistic approach to counseling, we may be a great match.

I specialize in integrating a combination of training in mind-body counseling, concepts from health coaching, personal life experience, mindfulness/awareness, and non-religious spirituality/transpersonal. I strive to help clients overcome their struggles and create change in their lives, in order to help them fulfill their highest potential. I believe that gaining insight into one’s self is key to flourishing mental health and self-actualization.


I employ approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) (Including Exposure and Response Prevention), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness/awareness, and non-religious spirituality/transpersonal, according to the unique needs of my clients. In addition, I offer a compassionate presence and reverence to the innate wisdom held within each of us.

I offer an international multicultural perspective, having lived in Ukraine, the U.S., and England.  In addition, one of my areas of interest is working with expats and digital nomads.

Additionally, I welcome and am allied with communities including LGBTQ, polyamorous, single by choice, asexual, sex workers, and those in open relationships, among others.

In addition to English, I am fluent in spoken Russian and have a basic conversational level in Spanish.

If this description resonates with you, please feel free to reach out to me for a free 15 minute consultation.

My Story

I was born in Ukraine.

As a child, I moved with my family to the United States. Not knowing the language and being very shy, I spent a lot of time on my own and felt like an outcast. I was anxious around interacting with other people and didn’t feel like I belonged.

Even though I felt “different” and struggled to make deeper connections, I made it to middle school.

But then 9/11 happened and I lost my mom in the attacks.

Around the same time, I was battling with things like obsessive-compulsive tendencies, anxiety, and being a middle schooler. My family and I went through a very challenging time.

Around the time of  finishing high school/starting college, my obsessive-compulsive tendencies, anxiety, depression, etc. had become worse. I reluctantly started working with a therapist. He shared that he too had struggled with some of the same things. Before that, I remember feeling something like, “I have no idea what is going on with me and I’m probably the only one who has these kinds of problems”.

Through my work with the therapist, I learned more about what was going on with me and I felt more understood and validated.

When I started college, I began to feel a bit lost and put less effort into my studies. I started asking myself things like “What is the point of doing all this?”. Around the same time, I started to develop an interest in marijuana, psychedelics, and altered states of consciousness. I remember big questions coming up for me like, “What is life all about?”, “Why am I here?”, “Is there more to life?”

Eventually, after reading a book that was very influential for me, I gradually moved away from the idea of using substances to experience higher states of consciousness, and into what I would describe as Eastern spirituality.

Spirituality has given me a very important sense of purpose and meaning in life.

After college, I went on to do a Master’s degree program in International Management in England and I eventually did a series of corporate-type jobs back in the United States.

However, I felt that the whole environment and type of work that I was doing, were not a good fit for me. Overall, I found the work to be monotonous, not very rewarding, and I remember feeling that I was not very good at most of it. 

It was time to make a change.

I did some reflection, research, and evaluated my perceived strengths, and decided to go back to school for a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling.

I currently work as an integrative counselor/therapist, utilizing approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) (Including Exposure and Response Prevention), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), talk therapy, concepts from health coaching, mindfulness/awareness, and non-religious spirituality/transpersonal. I am also allied with alternative communities.

I now feel that I live a much more aligned and fulfilled life.

There are many possibilities and it is my belief that in many cases, clients can also work through and overcome all kinds of challenges, and come out living a happier, healthier, more fulfilled, and more aligned life. 

Of course, there were more details to this story, but for the sake of length and privacy, I have omitted some things.  However, I would be happy to share more, one on one, if we both feel it may of help to you.
