WHO I HELP
In my work as a therapist, I support people who need help with relationships, picking up the pieces after affairs or divorce, with building their confidence, and with life transitions.
I work with couples experiencing lack of trust and who struggle with communicating and resolving conflict. I also support individuals and couples deciding whether to stay in their relationships.
I’m a mental health therapist, lawyer, and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). I have a no-nonsense, direct, yet compassionate approach to therapy. I am an even-tempered sounding board and provide a safe space without judgement. I am open, perceptive, and easy to speak with.
My place in our therapy relationship is to help you find and develop the power that lies within you, so you can create the life and the relationships you want.
I live with my family and a Siberian cat named Misiu in a northern suburb. I am a native Polish speaker and have a fondness for working with the Polish population and people of Polish descent.
