Individual and Relational Therapy

Justyna provides psychotherapy services for individual, couples, and other relational dynamics to address various issues and challenges. Justyna operates from a heart-centered space and works diligently to create a safe, welcoming, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive therapeutic space that celebrates diversity and unique differences. 

 

Justyna believes that YOU are the expert on you and your life. Her role is to help you remember the truth of who you are by providing tools, skills, and the space to rediscover yourself and create the relationships and life you desire.

Sex Therapy

Sexual health is a fundamental aspect of overall health. Conversations about sex and sexual issues can often bring up shame, discomfort, and pain for many. Justyna hopes to create a safe space to empower her clients to explore their relationship with sex and sexuality with openness and curiosity.

 

Justyna views sexual health within the context of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being and believes these realms are deeply interconnected. Justyna guides her clients in addressing various sexual difficulties to create an authentic connection with their sexual selves to increase joy, pleasure, connection, and embodiment.

Psychotherapy for First Responders

The job of a first responder comes with a unique lifestyle that can be very stressful and demanding. Turning off the intensity and fast pace nature required during a shift can be challenging. Talking about one's experiences to others who can't relate can leave one feeling isolated and with a heavy burden to carry alone.

 

Due to the nature of the work, first responders are at an increased risk for:

 

  • exposure to daily physical threats or harm

  • psychological stressors and trauma

  • mood swings, depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance use

  • nightmares and sleep disturbances

  • relational/familial difficulties 

  • professional burnout

Psychotherapy offers a safe space to process the stressors of the first responder role. It also provides an opportunity to learn new tools and skills to cope with the traumatic aspects of the job, increase self-care, and improve overall mental health and emotional well-being. Psychotherapy also offers support for partners and family members of first responders.

Psychotherapy for Special Needs Parents

Parenthood is not an easy role. Caring for a child with special needs brings unique challenges to an inherently stressful role. Parents and caregivers of children with special needs often face difficult emotions such as fear, worry and guilt and often navigate grief in isolation.

 

Psychotherapy offers a safe space for parents and caregivers to care for themselves and process the heavy feelings that often arise.

 

Psychotherapy can help parents and caregivers to:

 

  • cope with a child’s unexpected diagnosis

  • develop self-care habits and increase the ability to manage stress

  • improve overall functioning

  • process the emotional complexities of navigating the world of special needs

  • address relational/marital strains that may be present

Trauma-Sensitive Yoga
 

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex trauma and chronic PTSD. 

 

TCTSY supports participants in cultivating a sense of safety, connection, and empowerment within themselves, others, and the world around them. TCTSY enhances interoception (the sense of what's happening inside the body) and promotes personal power, choice, autonomy, and embodiment, often stripped away by trauma.

 

Justyna incorporates TCTSY principles and practices into her psychotherapy work. Previous yoga experience is not required to benefit from TCTSY.

Yoga Informed Psychotherpay  
 

Yoga therapy is a holistic healing modality that applies yogic tools such as postures, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more to address an individual’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Justyna is currently completing training in the 800+ Hour Optimal State Yoga Therapy and Lifestyle Medicine Training Program and enjoys integrating yogic principles and practices in her psychotherapy work.
