Emilia Sabatowska, LMHC Whole Living Center Founder

I support clients in restoring their connection to self and others, as well as trusting their healing intelligence. I believe that health and well being comes as an effect of the integration of all aspects of self. My psychotherapeutic style is informed by mindfulness meditation and other mind-body approaches.

I will work with you to recover your inherent wholeness and support you in identifying the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that prevent you from living a healthy and inspired life. We will explore any unresolved emotional conflicts that interfere with your growth, and help you find clarity and focus. I also work with clients who are exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness and want support in integrating those experiences.

I am continually amazed by the authentic human-to-human interaction that therapy embodies. I do not believe that I know more than anyone else, rather I believe therapy is a joint effort. I will help guide the process, but together we will create a therapeutic process that fits your unique needs and strengths. It is an empowering feeling to be a part of your own path of changing.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults in an individual, couples, or a family setting. I will work with you to help improve your overall functioning and ability to cope with whatever life throws at you. I utilize an interdisciplinary approach in a holistic manner to connect all the aspects of the mind, body, and spirit through engagement in a combination of talk therapy, mindfulness, and expressive art therapies. My background focuses on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-based Expressive Arts, Grief and Loss, Eating Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Anxiety and Adjustment related disorders, Depression, and Mood disorders. I invite anyone to start their own journey towards new understanding and awareness in their lives; it’s an exciting beginning.

Speak your truth and feel heard. Through establishing an authentic connection and providing a compassionate space to share, clients can start to embrace their strengths and utilize their personal power. Everyone deserves the time and space to explore their narrative — including the conflict, the achievements, the concerns and the hopes. When we find our meaning or purpose, we feel more fulfilled and feel ready to face life’s challenges. This can take some time, but it is comforting to go through this process with someone by your side. By collaborating together, anything is possible. I like to use tools and techniques that the client finds to be most helpful — this can be cognitive approaches, existential examination, strengths-based communication, empowerment strategies, expressive arts and much more. Let’s explore.
