Education and Training

Unique Approach

According to Dr. Selwocka, “My approach focuses on accepting patients where they are at in their treatment journey while supporting them to make changes that will allow them to be the best version of themselves.” She prioritizes taking an empathic and non-judgmental stance and utilizes a person-centered and relational approach. Dr. Selwocka has advanced skills at utilizing CBT and DBT interventions when necessary as she supports patients working towards lives that are balanced and fulfilling. She is fluent in Polish. Fun fact! Dr. Selwocka is an animal lover, she has two dogs, one cat and an Axolotl (walking fish).
