      "In every step the way is found"

Can psychotherapy really change anything? We all have different temperaments we were born with. Early experiences shape our future expectations, putting roadblocks and life supports in our way. Every life brings constant changes and inescapable losses that break our hearts open and transform us. We all grow and expand as we live. Moments of change may feel like a crisis, and yet, these very moments are portals to a new path, a new stage of living. You can’t go back. You have to flow with the changes, open up to your potential.

In the last 25 years I have had the privilege of accompanying countless clients in their journeys of discovery and transition. I will assist you with passion, deep acceptance, knowledge of many therapeutic approaches, and, .... we are going to have fun!

Top 3 issues in my practice
1. LOVE. First, by far, are relationship issues, broken hearts, confusion, conflicts, loneliness.
2. Anxiety and stress, anger management, disappointments and frustration in personal life and at work.
3. Trauma, including childhood developmental trauma.


What I am most proud of in my practice
I am extremely proud of the healing journeys of all people I have had privilege to meet and work with. I admire their courage, I am awed by their depth, and bask in their light. To witness their transition from stuckness and defeat to excitement and renewed focus and energy is what makes my work worthwhile.

The population I work with most
I enjoy working with people all ages and genders, in all of the three most popular areas of my practice: love, stress, and past traumas/disappointments. I love working with the population of 25-35 year olds. They constitute most of my clients and it is a true joy to co-create healing solutions with them. They are passionate, caring, smart and spiritually thirsty generation. I have also been working successfully with men and women with ADHD and Asbergers syndrome.

My Bio
My professional life, and perhaps all my adult life, has been dedicated to the pursuit of best emotional healing practices. For over 25 years of practice and education spanning many theories and practical schools (psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy, Rogerian, Gestalt, family systemic, narrative, psychodrama, CBT, energy psychology, mindfulness based, mind-body approaches), different countries (my native Poland, Germany, Sweden and Canada), and universities (MSc in Clinical Psychology from University of Warsaw, Philosophy and Language Certificate from Christian Albrecht University in Kiel, Women’s Studies Certificate from York University in Toronto, PhD in Public Health Sciences from Swedish Royal Medical Institute/Karolinska Institute in Stockholm) my passion for discovering what makes us heal continues. I have presented at international conferences, taught undergraduate programs and my work has been published in scientific and popular journals.
