I utilize proven interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based, Strength-Based, Motivational Interviewing and more.
Taking the first steps to make changes and move towards recovery and growth is often not easy but feeling better matters. You may feel as if you’re struggling even if you’re smart, hard-working and motivated, but you can feel better. Clients come to therapy burdened with such things as anxiety/mood concerns, grief/loss issues, low self-esteem, LGBTQ+ issues, men's issues or challenges with life transitions. You want to move forward and make positive changes but are not sure where to start. Have a mature, relational, compassionate and insight- oriented therapeutic partner with you on this journey. If you contact me, I will reach out.

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.

I use the framework of CBT , ERP, and DBT as I’ve seen them work well for my clients and their effectiveness is heavily supported by research.
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.

If you have found yourself here it is because you are wanting to make a change in your life and/or your relationships. Maybe you have been feeling overwhelmed at work or at home, you have been experiencing low self-esteem, or you are stuck in a relationship that is no longer serving you. The therapeutic process is a powerful one where you get to work through your emotions and thoughts to come out even stronger than you were before.

“I now see that owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” – Brené Brown My goal in therapy is to be a strong support for you as you own your story and learn to practice more love and acceptance for yourself. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary and vulnerable, and I hope to provide a safe space for you to identify your goals and begin to make positive, values-based changes toward a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

I tailor my practice to each person's unique needs drawing upon psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches.
Because each person is different, there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy. Ultimately, the right therapist can help you develop a greater sense of peace and self-fulfillment. So it is important to choose someone with whom you feel safe and comfortable; someone who will listen, empathize, and respect your needs; and someone with the skills necessary to support you in reaching your goals. In the process, you will acquire greater self-awareness, and learn to cope more effectively with life issues. This is my approach to therapy. I hope I will be able to help you.

But you won’t just get my expertise ( CBT , hypnosis, etc.
Poor sleep affects every facet of your life. Your insomnia might be making you feel depressed or anxious, frustrated with poor memory or mental “fog,” or like you’re constantly sick. However it’s manifesting, you’re starting to see the effects: relationships are suffering, work is slipping, life feels dull, and you feel helpless to stop it. You need sound solid sleep because you need to feel better, but even more than that, you want to get to the root of this problem altogether...so you can get rid of it for good. You’re ready to not stress every night as you lie awake, to heal past wounds in your life, and to feel hope again.

I specialize in working with people with PTSD, complex PTSD, as well as grief, burnout, and stress. I also work with creatives (artists, writers, illustrators, musicians, etc) who feel blocked in their creativity or struggle with the “Imposter Syndrome.”

I am trained in evidenced-based treatments of EMDR for trauma, CBT for anxiety and depression, preteen and teen therapy, and EFT for coupes in distress, as well as bringing a biblical perspective to your counseling for those that want their faith to be a part of their healing journey.
You're tired. If it's not one thing it's another. You don't know what to do. The adolescent years are so hard. You just don't know how to help your child. They struggle so much. Or maybe it's your marriage. It just plain hard. Was marriage supposed to be like this? We just can't seem to get along. You wonder, if healing is even possible, you've been going through this for so long. You ask yourself, Is something wrong with me? I just can't seem to be happy. I'm afraid or anxious all the time. In each of these scenarios, you wonder if there is any hope.

I draw on multiple theories ( cognitive -behavioral, psychodynamic, ecological, feminist, humanistic) to understand my clients in the context of their lives.
I believe that each of us deserves to live life as our best self. Often, shame and judgement about our problems can get in the way of solving them. Developing compassionate curiosity is key to empowering ourselves and creating change in our lives. I believe that therapy can be a bridge to increased satisfaction and a sense of well-being. When life's stresses feel overwhelming; a safe, caring environment can allow you to understand yourself and your feelings, manage your stress, and change your strategies for coping. I am privileged to be involved in such important and transformative work.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
