I was educated as a psychologist in Poland. I am a psychotherapist who is New York State licensed in Mental Health Counseling (LMHC) as well as in Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT). I am an Internationally Certified Addiction Counselor (ICADC) and Certified Hypnotherapist (CHt). I also hold a current New York State Credential in Alcohol and Drug Counseling (CASAC) and advanced certificates in Reiki and the Silva Mind Control Method. I have been trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Compulsive Gambling and Tobacco Dependency Treatment. Since 2003, I have been an active member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) the largest and oldest association of hypnotists and hypnotherapy membership organization in the world.
