If you’re seeking a therapist who can create new solutions and help you navigate the complexities of life with confidence, Elzbieta is the right fit for you.

Should you desire to deepen the understanding of your behaviors, inner conflicts, and emotions through the perspective of the Autonomic Nervous System, she will be a great choice because of her interest in neuroscience, neuropsychology, and Polyvagal Theory.

It deepened her understanding of complexity of mental health diagnosis and addictions.  If you are looking to regain a sense of direction and control in life, Elzbieta will be a suitable choice. She is also committed to supporting family members of those who struggle with addictions and various mental health diagnosis.
