Headway

Kinga

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with more than 15 years experience providing counseling to diverse populations in the United States and other countries.

My clients often tell me that they most appreciate my interactive style, and the accepting, non-judgmental atmosphere I create in our sessions. Clients also comment on my ability to get to the heart of the matter, to put the pieces together and understand the basic issues facing them.


My area of interest includes working with individuals from a multicultural background, and with cross-cultural couples. Having immigrated as a young adult, I have experience that allows me to be especially attuned to multicultural individuals and cross-cultural couples who are straddling two worlds.


In working with individuals, I get them to look at obstacles and other challenging situations as opportunities to grow, to gain a better understanding of themselves and others, and ultimately to gain greater meaning in their life. I will help you make the most of your strengths, and you will discover your capacity for positive change.


In working with couples, I help them to understand the emotional reasons for their disconnection, and I introduce them to the strategies for recreating safe and secure attachments. When we feel disconnected in our relationships, it seems that everything in our life is out of balance. My goal is to help you build stronger connections that will renew and enhance all areas of your life.


I have a Masters Degree and a PhD in Social Work. In addition, I have completed intensive training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and ​Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems ( IFS) . Let my education, training, and compassion help you!
