Jola Czaicka-Kotlarczyk 

Would you like to improve the relationships in your life? Are you ashamed or embarrassed about your body? Are you seeking relief from specific symptoms? I would like to help you. Through a therapeutic relationship, I will create a safe and confidential space for you to begin your exploration into healing.   

 

As a counseling intern I can provide relational and individual therapy for couples, families and individuals. My therapy orientation is narrative, solution focused, rooted in feminism and Body Trust © informed. With my past experience working in Crisis and Suicide Prevention, I am not afraid to listen to complex and painful stories. 

 

I hope to work with you if you want to feel relief from pain, body shame, improve self-expression, and relationships. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and do not impose my values on them.
