“What happened to my happy child?” Parents often come to me feeling overwhelmed and confused by their child’s obsessive compulsive disorder ( OCD ) or anxiety. Often it starts with a small fear – about something bad happening to Mom or Dad, about getting sick, about failing a quiz – but the anxiety grows over time and keeps your child from the calm and joy you wish for them. Your child may retreat and avoid people and situations that used to bring them happiness. Many parents do their best to help them regain control of their thoughts and emotions, but they become disheartened when their efforts seem to make no difference.

I specialize in working with adults and teens on the autism spectrum who struggle with anxiety or depression, or who need support with navigating the academic, occupational, or social world. My goal is not to “fix” you - you are not broken! I aim to facilitate understanding, grow your skills, and expand your options in order to help you achieve your goals. In addition to autism, I treat those with anxiety disorders, OCD , tic disorders, ADHD, depression, and trauma. I also love working with parents, offering support for parenting stress, as well as tools and strategies for managing behavioral challenges in younger children.

Majority of my recent work revolves around treating Anxiety and OCD , which are based on fear of the unknown and attempts to control the environment or problem-solve potential issues.
There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now and for some it is harder to manage than others. If you are struggling emotionally, feeling down, constantly on edge, increasingly fearful or irritable, reach out for help. Stress is easier to manage with proper tools and support. Connecting with a therapist who you can trust and feel comfortable with is important. I was born and raised in Poland and have lived in San Diego since 2002. I got my BA in Psychology and MSW degrees at SDSU. I have 10 years of experience working in mental health, including individual, couples, and group therapy.

Successfully managing through high school, college, and early adulthood can be challenging. Many of my clients find themselves sacrificing mental health for academic and career success or have difficulties with motivation, confidence, and relationships. While stress is a normal and expected part of life, I help my clients manage anxiety and OCD without feeling hopeless, overwhelmed, or alone. I also support the building of communication skills and boundary-setting to better navigate and nurture important relationships with family, friends, and romantic partners.

My training is in CBT and ACT, clearly the most effective formats for issues of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, OCD , and a variety of other issues.
After 35 years in the San Diego area, I feel particularly well suited to working with clients with a variety of "problems in living." Managing stress, lifestyle balance, coping with relationship issues, and workplace difficulties affect us all, and having professional support and input is now not only acceptable, but crucial. And, research has shown that of all the factors that are key in predicting a positive outcome in any form of therapy, the quality of the relationship with your therapist is the most important. And that is my focus!

I help individuals and couples in many areas including: Relationship Concerns, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma & PTSD, Grief, Sexual Acting Out, OCD , Childhood Abuse, Self Esteem Issues.
I help men suffering from an uncontrollable and compulsive use of pornography that causes shame, damages their self-worth, and harms their relationships. Using a goal-oriented approach to therapy, these men learn strategies to reduce their cravings while authentically connecting with others and resolving the emotional needs at the root of their compulsion. This treatment, combined with EMDR, empowers them to release their self-sabotaging habits and create empowering behavior patterns in their stead. As they regain their self-mastery, they experience their strength, freedom, and confidence increase so that they can enjoy more peace,

I specialize in treating anxiety disorders, such as phobias, social anxiety, OCD , as well as depression and bipolar disorder.
Negative thoughts and feelings can seem overwhelming, and at times even become unbearable. Often they are the root cause of the issues that prompt someone to seek outside help. Using a primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy approach, I help people understand what triggers these feelings and together we work on strategies for managing and reducing them. Therapy is tailored to an individual's specific needs to meet immediate goals, as well as to build tools for long-term balance and well-being.
