Who I am

I became a psychotherapist for various reasons. One of them is that very early on in my childhood – I had seen what impact people could have on one another in the times of crisis. Both positive and destructive. I then decided I wanted to use whatever I had to help.

Many years have passed since then, but now even more than ever I am convinced that people can get better and can work  through their misfortunes and struggles. It doesn’t meant we can avoid problems, it means we can learn how to deal with them better.

I’ve had the privilige of working with many people over the years who trusted me enough to talk to me about their most intimate experiences and emotional rollercoasters. And I can tell you this – psychotherapy is a powerful set of tools. One that can help you grow and build a life for yourself that is more balanced and intentional.

In my life I have lived and worked in Poland, US, Israel and The Netherlands. I’m bilingual working in both English and Polish.

I am happily married and I’m a mom of two teenage people 🙂 

Experience

I am a therapist certified by the European Association of Psychotherapy and I have practised for over a decade now. I graduated from the Institute of Applied Social Sciences at Warsaw University, where I obtained my Master’s Degree.

I chose to specialize in psychotherapy and mediation.

After graduating from the University I studied in the Psychoeducation Laboratory (Laboratorium Psychoedukacji) – individual, group and children psychotherapy. I’ve also done training in MBT – Mentalization-Based Treatment organized by LPS in association with Anna Freud’s Institute in London.

I have over 12 years of experience in working with patients in individual and group settings within my private practice. Four of those years I spent working at various psychiatric facilities – eg the Department for Neurotic Disorders (Psychiatric Hospital) located in KomorĂłw, and also at the Department of Pediatric Psychiatry (Psychiatric Ward) in JĂłzefĂłw.
