As part of ongoing pandemic safety measures, therapeutic meetings are moved to a secure online platform.
In-person appointments are available by request under special circumstances, and require that safety procedures and restrictions are adhered to.
These are challenging times. Please know that you do not have to be alone.
CALM AT THE CENTER
Therapy to cultivate the calm at the center of your life.
Sometimes, seeking help from a counsellor can be a good way to put life/body/health/spirit/relationship into perspective. It can help get re-connected to that calm center within, the quiet stillness that is a source of wisdom in our lives.
The calm within us can be our source of strength, wisdom, and peace, even in a world of unforeseen challenges.
As a registered social work clinician and counsellor in Calgary, I am committed to helping you reconnect with your mental, emotional, and spiritual strengths, to help you navigate any dilemmas and challenges you are facing.
I look forward to working with you and helping you navigate life’s challenges.
"Mastery is the natural result of mindfulness."
THERAPY SERVICES OFFERED
Each person entering a therapeutic process is entrusting experiences, challenges, sources of pain, to a therapist because they believe that change is possible. I believe that choice of therapeutic approaches must always respect a person's life story, life experience, innate wisdom and their strengths, while also acknowledging the socio-cultural and economic contexts that also impact each of us in our world. My therapeutic work is based in a deep commitment to respecting and cherishing the wealth of wisdom, strength, insight of each person.
When you are feeling stuck, unable to make the changes you desire, when life seems overwhelming and relationships too difficult, a therapeutic conversation can help us connect with our strengths, capacities, skills, and gifts that are temporarily out of sight and seem impossible to reach again.
I work with many problems and dilemmas people experience on our journey in life, including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, ecological grief, personal growth and development, and spiritual growth and healing.
Contact me today and let me help you find the best in yourself.
Relationships between partners sometimes experience challenges in much the same way that individuals do. In relationship therapy, I support all partners through challenging conversations and encourage space and understanding of each perspective.
My focus in therapy is on nourishing and guiding the relationship in order to help partners practice deepening connection and intimacy. Difficulty with communication, lack of intimacy, betrayals of trust, challenges in parenting of children, can all be addressed in therapeutic conversations.
Family life can sometimes become tense and difficult - families are groups of unique people who share many connections with each other and the world outside.
Difficulties encountered by one family member, whether it's stress, a developmental milestone, a health challenge, emotional trauma, may ripple out into the family's relationships with each other.
In my approach to family therapy, I bring a gentle focus to the relationships between family members even through those challenges. We start by identifying any patterns of interaction between family members that might be causing additional distress, and collaboratively finding new ways to connect and bring healing into the relationships.
Contact me today and let me help your family relate in supportive and connected ways even throughout challenging times.

Hi, I'm Agnieszka (ahg-knee-eh-sh-ka) and my pronouns are she/her, they/them. I have long felt called to the work of witnessing, supporting, encouraging, facilitating, and holding space for people in the deep personal work of healing and reconnecting with their inner strength and wisdom.
I believe that all humans carry multiple stories about our Selves, our lives and experiences. There are many nuances and layers in these stories that are sometimes hidden and disconnected, and it is in the rediscovery and retelling of our stories that we can find parts of ourselves that are profoundly strong and brilliant!
