MEET Joanna

In our experience of unhappiness, disappointment, grief and loss, or psychological trauma, we often presume that we are without even the most fundamental skills that we need to cope with, or overcome emotional setbacks. However, this isn’t the case. You are much more resilient than you think.

The foundation of my approach focuses on identifying your unique strengths. Together we will uncover your personality strengths of which you may have been previously unaware, and build on these strengths to develop a better understanding of yourself, how to solve issues, and set healthy boundaries with others in your life.

I use this approach to help people gain relief from symptoms of anxiety and depression, which may be triggered by unaddressed childhood trauma or traumatic life events. For those who may wonder about their true purpose in life or suffer through life transitions, together we can equip you with the means to successfully manage existential worries. I also help couples learn how to communicate more effectively and work through issues surrounding intimacy and sex. In our work together, couples begin to heal from wounds inflicted by past infidelity and unaddressed conflict, and start to see the quality of their relationships improve.

My approach uses elements of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Structural-Strategic Family Therapy. My work is informed by my firm belief that we can learn from our past, achieve a better understanding of our patterns of behavior and view our lives with a new perspective. As you gain clarity and understanding, you will begin to feel more in control of your life story and its meaning.

Throughout my decade of experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I’ve come to view therapy as a puzzle. You have all of the possible pieces that you need, sometimes you just need someone to help you put the pieces in the right place. 

I invite you to a place of self-discovery and a betterment of your life.

I also offer therapy in Polish, my native language.

ENDORSEMENTS

“Joanna is highly recommended by all of my patients who have the chance to interact with her. If you are dealing with marital problems, anxiety or depression issues, or you just want to understand why your life isn't going the way you would like it to, consider giving Joanna a call.”

– Dr. Edyta Reyher, MD
MY THERAPY STYLE

I generally tell clients to try a few sessions, and see how they feel about it. There is no pressure involved and I am accepting of the client’s feelings and wishes.

I’ve been formally trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which I find to be useful when working with both individuals and couples.

When I’m able to make a genuine connection with a client in terms of understanding them as best as possible.

The mythologist Joseph Campbell noted that there is a common humanity within all of our nervous systems out of which we all act as a people. This simple reality goes a long way to building bridges.

My Polish background gives me already a different perspective and knowledge of being “different,” and I’m finding this to be comforting for some clients.
