Professional statement

I love helping people achieve their true potential; I love guiding people to make the change after which their lives will never be the same again. But this is a serious endeavor. Overcoming years of ingrained self-hatred, fear, and anxiety is not easy. It’s a process of transformation, a massive undertaking that should not be entered in on carelessly. I’d like to be your guide on that journey. Are you ready to embark on the greatest adventure of your life? Are you ready to travel to a place where you can confidently look back on all of your achievements and forward to those that are yet to come? If the answer is yes, then allow me to help you take the first steps. You will be accompanied every step of the way. I have exceptional resources to help you change your life for the better. I offer my clients a range of options, including a TeleMentalHealth Service, phone coaching, and group therapy.


Message to clients

I am well trained in the area of addiction, anxiety, and depression. I grew up in Poland, where I spent many years studying addiction in the Neurosis Clinic of the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology, Warsaw. I learned there about personality disorders and how to change maladaptive behavioral patterns. Then moved to New York, where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work (BSW) at York College and my Master’s in Clinical Social Work (MSW) at Lehman College. I completed my three-year clinical training at the St. Mark’s Place Institute for Mental Health. During my post-graduate studies, I learned techniques around mindfulness, gratitude, compassion, and acceptance. I have degrees from both Poland and the US, and I am familiar with the struggles that surround acculturation. But beyond my degrees, my ‘toolbox’ is filled with ideas from arts and sports, to education, spiritual and motivational development. I use TeleMentalHelth Services and I am a certified provider of that service.
