About Me

Hi my name is Justyna. I am a licensed therapist in North Carolina with seven years of experience working with individuals, couples and groups with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, career challenges and personal loss. I also specialize in insomnia and nightmare treatment as sleep issues often precede or are developed in challenging times in our lives and tend to have negative impact on cognitive and emotional functioning further making it more difficult to make progress in therapy.
My counseling approach is warm and engaging. My approach combines client centered, cognitive-behavioral, trauma focused and Gottman Method therapies.
My promise to you is that I am here to help guide you to achieve better quality of life by instilling hope and motivating you to take an action for better NOW and FUTURE.

I like Justyna's ability to distill complex issues to their essence. She problem solves well, offers support and usable solutions. I would consider referring a family member to Justyna.

Love that we don’t just jump into things, she took her time to actually get to know who I am and what my interest are before trying to help me which is what I was hoping for. Super friendly and non judgmental.

Justyna has been a great help to me through some very troubling recent changes in my life. As someone who has never thought therapy would do much for me, she treats me like an individual, rather than a generalization. Not once have I felt infantilized, invalidated, or pushed into anything I haven't been ready for. The betterhelp platform and Justyna have done wonders for my mental health and I am forever grateful.
