"People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives."

"For a long time now you have been looking for relief from the traumas, stressors and intensities that can arise as a part of everyday life. You may be feeling the weight of depression, or indecision; you may have learned to cope with life by starting to believe that your anxieties, self-defeating thoughts, insecurities and discomforts are simply who you are. Perhaps the idea and experience of internal and interpersonal freedom seem pleasant but have been unobtainable so far. You could be interested in exploring the fullness of your identity, learning to discover yourself and wondering how to show up as that person in your daily life"

""Let me walk with you into the sunlight..." I have a passion for guiding clients on their path to healing, empowerment, finding meaning, and creating a healthy balance and authenticity in one's life. I am an immigrant from Poland. The prejudice I have experienced because of my ethnic background, gives me a capacity to be empathic and real with my clients. I enjoy working with people of all ages, couples, and families. Regardless of approach in therapy, it is the ‘relationship that heals’ what needs focus. Beyond teaching tools to calm your nervous system, my goal is to provide a corrective emotional experience.🌞"

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. San Leandro Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert.
