I'm Agnieszka (ahg-ñeh-sh-ka). My pronouns are she/her.
I cherish the work of witnessing, supporting, encouraging, facilitating, and holding space for all people and all relationships in the deep personal work of healing and reconnecting with their inner strengths and wisdoms.
I hold many different stories and identities as a person and as a therapist.
I am an Eastern European immigrant, with a many-layered history of leaving a place of origin, navigating the experiences of migration and the experience of being a refugee, and through those experiences learning about loss, change, adaptation and new ways of belonging.
I am a cisgender female and I identify as a woman. I am able-bodied and a biological mother to three living and able-bodied children.
I gratefully acknowledge that I now live and work on the Traditional Territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (which includes the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), Stoney-Nakoda First Nations (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
It is in the rediscovery and re-telling of our stories that we can find parts of ourselves that are profoundly strong and brilliant.
