About Katarzyna Dlugosz
I view psychotherapy as a way of gaining relief from suffering. It helps in reaching intellectual, emotional, and spiritual balance. Through uncovering the barriers that prevent us from reaching our potential we can become our true self. Psychotherapy allows us to gain insight into a better understanding of ourselves and others. It is a process that can enable us to learn new, more constructive ways of dealing with difficulties, and more enjoyable ways of relating to others and ourselves. It is a way to uncover clarity of our past, present, and future which will lead to peace of mind and wisdom of oneself and life. My psychodynamic and psychoanalytic orientations give me a deeper understanding of dynamics of my patients' problems. In a supportive and comfortable atmosphere I work towards helping them to gain control of their life, become aware of the cause of the problem, and find a way to change, accept or see things in different perspective. In my work I incorporate Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy. EMDR is a method of deep and accelerated processing of material (painful thoughts, feelings, experiences caused by past, present, or future) that may be inaccessible in traditional talk therapy. EMDR has been proven to be especially effective to treat trauma, addiction, and anxiety disorders. My experience and educational background is focused on clinical psychology, psychodynamic psychotherapy, EMDR treatment, and psychotherapy of addiction and co-dependency. I specialize in treatment of: • trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) • isolation and adjustment problems • immigration trauma • growing up in an abusive/dysfunctional home (developmental trauma/complex PTSD) • alcoholism, addiction, and co-dependency • relationship difficulties and family problems • interpersonal difficulties • problems with own autonomy and assertiveness • anxiety and depression • low self-esteem • grieving: overcoming divorce, loss of a loved one, loss of a job • life transitions: career change, marriage, pregnancy • mindfulness I offer individual therapy in English and Polish. Depending on patient’s individual needs, I offer short term or long term treatment. Skype and phone sessions available. Pharmacological treatment (referrals to psychiatrist) and referrals for psychological testing available if necessary.

Patient reviews for Katarzyna Dlugosz, LMHC, CASAC, MA
We worked together for 2,5 years. She changed my life. Before our work, I lived in a state of grey depression and chaos. I had been, at times, near suicide. After our work together, I have begun to live a life of color. Everything that I couldn't make work before-- is coming to me now. The life i want. Love, family, a career that I am passionate about that supports me to earn prosperously. Dr. D was the change that has allowed me to soar.
Katarzyna has really helped me find stability and stay grounded during a very difficult time in my life. I am very grateful for her support throughout the process. I found her feedback to be very supportive but also very constructive; she has helped me to be more in the present and move forward after a loss. I’m so grateful for the support she has given me and for her help processing the past. I highly recommend her to anyone going through a life change and trying to navigate themselves on the road forward after a loss.
Ms. Dlugosz played a major role as a therapist in my recovery process and helped me to understand my dysfunctional family, the unhealthy role I had in that dysfunction. Without that knowledge and identification I would never able to overcome of my addiction. She assisted me to learn to cope, have better boundaries, healthier relationship with myself and others and most importantly she guided me to build a much better life or I should say find happiness within me. I can not thank her enough for her help, knowledge and determination as a professional. Thank you!
Perceptive and adroit, welcoming and professional, Katarzyna is open minded and a skilled and receptive listener. She is both insightful and communicative. I highly recommend her as a therapist; she has been a tremendous help to me. .
I’m 57 years old and, because of a divorce and the traumatic early illnesses of my parents, have been to several therapist over the years. I was lucky enough that they were all very good. However, even in a field of excellence, Katarzyna stands head and shoulders above the rest. Not only is she extremely intelligent and logical, but she possesses an unusual depth of emotional sensitivity, which seems completely natural to her. This combination of extreme intelligence and warm natural sensitivity creates a feeling of safety and constructive acceptance that makes her unique as a human being even in the field of clinical therapy. As if her qualities as a clinical therapist weren’t enough, she is also the best emdr therapist I’ve been to; she helped me fully process things which my previous therapists couldn’t budge. Finally, she is very discreet, which made it possible for me to recommended her to a couple of friends over the past few years. They are thrilled with her as well.
I've been seeing Katarzyna for the last several years now, and she has guided me through some of the darkest and most painful periods of my life – both past and present. The only way I could experience any sense of healing is for me to be with someone whom I could trust implicitly, without question, and with whom I felt safe, knowing that I was making myself more vulnerable with her than with perhaps anyone in my life. Katarzyna has never failed to make me feel just that, safe, and in the process she has helped me to uncover and process things about myself that were in great need of healing. She is always professional, she is kind, she is gentle, she knows when it is time to push and when it is time to let me walk at my own pace. I will forever be grateful for the gift of healing she has brought and continues to bring to me.
Kata challenges me. She is smart and insightful, but also tolerant and even-keeled. She really cares about her patients, and has offered me some great coping skills that have helped me become less anxious in my day to day life, and to see the good parts of myself. As someone who grew up halfway across the world, she also has a more holistic perspective on life and I think that adds to her efficacy. I've been to several therapists throughout life and she has been far and away the best. Highly, highly recommend!
