We all go through difficult times in life. We hurt, grieve, feel sad, angry and anxious, we become frustrated, get stuck on something or someone and often do not know how to move on.“The best way out is always through” said the poet Robert Frost and I believe that this is a great metaphor for the process of psychotherapy. It is not easy to face our problems, be vulnerable in front of another person, reveal our fears and anxieties or experience uncomfortable emotions. It takes courage to ask for help and begin therapy and I have tremendous respect for anyone who is willing to do so.
My approach is person centered, empathetic and respectful of each client's uniqueness. I strongly believe that the quality of the therapeutic alliance and mutual trust between the client and the therapist are the most important factors that facilitate self-awareness and lead to emotional growth.
I will assist you on your journey to emotional well-being by providing empathetic support and encouragement but it will be you who decides what steps you want to take, how fast or slow you want to go and what your goals in treatment are. Feel free to ask me any questions, discuss mutual expectations and terms of our collaboration.
Jestem psychoterapeutką licencjonowaną w stanie Nowy Jork. Oferuję usługi terapeutyczne w języku polskim dla osób dorosłych zmagających się z problemami takimi jak lęk, depresja, uzależnienia, trudności w związkach czy kłopoty z przystosowaniem się do życia na emigracji.
Obecnie oferuję usługi online (video) i sesje w gabinecie na Brooklynie (Greenpoint/Williamsburg).
Osoby zainteresowane rozpoczęciem psychoterapii zapraszam na bezpłatną konsultację telefoniczną, poczas której wyjaśnię zasady jej działania i umówię na pierwszą wizytę.
