Can psychotherapy really change anything? We all have different temperaments we were born with. Early experiences shape our future expectations, putting roadblocks and life supports in our way. Every life brings constant changes and inescapable losses that break our hearts open and transform us. We all grow and expand as we live. Moments of change may feel like a crisis, and yet, these very moments are portals to a new path, a new stage of living. You can’t go back. You have to flow with the changes, through stress and anxiety, to open up to your potential.
I am very passionate about empowering women and men from all walks of life through life transitions:
Are you feeling the life you are currently living is not what you have hoped for and things are not supposed to be the way they are? Are you feeling anxious, exhausted, frustrated, disappointed? You can transform the energy in your life, make it flourish and nurture you. You can end the insanity and drama. You can heal the places where you bleed your light and feel disempowered. Connect for confidential, practical help to living in a flow. Contact me to schedule a consultation or a psychotherapy session.
I am semiretired, and my practice is part time, 1pm to 5pm, and my appointment flexibility is limited. All sessions are virtual.
My professional life, and perhaps all my adult life, has been dedicated to the pursuit of best emotional healing practices. For over 35 years of practice and education spanning many theories and practical schools (psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy, Rogerian, Gestalt, family systemic, narrative, psychodrama, CBT, energy psychology, mindfulness based, mind-body approaches), different countries (my native Poland, Germany, Sweden and Canada), and universities (MSc in Clinical Psychology from University of Warsaw, Philosophy and Language Certificate from Christian Albrecht University in Kiel, Women’s Studies Certificate from York University in Toronto, PhD in Public Health Sciences from Swedish Royal Medical Institute/Karolinska Institute in Stockholm) my passion for discovering what makes us heal continues. I have presented at international conferences, taught undergraduate programs and my work has been published in scientific and popular journals. I specialize in worry, anxiety, frustration and stress management, with a special interest in women’s life cycles. I am a Registered Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario.
I am semiretired now but still see select clients for long term therapy and for consultations.
Therapy provides us with the opportunity to explore current difficulties, and their roots, in a safe and supportive environment with the full attention of a psychotherapist.
Health research shows that prolonged stress has detrimental effect on our health. If you are feeling anxious, angry, frustrated, and have trouble sleeping it is time to regroup.
In a busy, sometimes insane, schedule, take a moment to occupy a space devoted to the art of creating nurturing bonds with people around you.
As a psychotherapist, I specialize in empowering women through life transitions: first serious relationships, break ups, professional success, marriage, motherhood, loss of a loved one, and menopause...
If you need an experienced voice by your side to come up with a plan, or understand better an issue in your life, but are not ready to dig deep, come in for a consultation, and see how helpful a session with an experienced psychotherapist can be.
Psychotherapy offers reduction in emotional and health costs of life challenges. The objective of psychotherapy is to assist with life transitions, with finding better ways to meet daily events, relate to other people, work, and to create more freedom and peace.
