I'm Kinga Kasprzyk (khasp-SHICK), licensed professional counselor in Texas. I believe that life is made up of a series of moments. You've probably heard the phrase "tomorrow is a new day"...but what happens while waiting for tomorrow!? I prefer "every moment is a new moment".
My goal is to help you learn to be in control of your thoughts, regulate your emotions, and choose healthy actions.
I founded Courageous Conversations Therapy with a simple mission: to guide you through your unique series of moments. I believe that human connection in and of itself can be healing. I want you to find the courage to say the things you want to say, and do the things you must do to move forward in life, even when it's hard.
I place importance on developing a strong therapeutic relationship with you; a relationship that encompasses clear communication and healthy expression of emotion.
Together, we can figure out how to navigate the important relationships in your life, to move past the self doubt, to uncover a healthier version of yourself.
I'm down to earth, and I do a good job of making people feel at ease. I do enjoy using sarcasm and humor where therapeutically appropriate. I have the following qualifications:
Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the
Illinois School of Professional Psychology
Bachelor of Arts in Rhetoric and Communication, minor in Sociology
from Dominican University, River Forest, IL
Texas LPC License 84322
Illinois LCPC License 180.014459
Louisiana LPC License 8993
Maryland LCPC License LC12900
TF-CBT and EMDR Trained
(Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
In my free time I snuggle with my furbabies, explore Texas with my life partner, try new recipes, and sometimes dabble in my sister's talent - painting with acrylics. I have three sisters and six nieces and nephews.
I'm happiest when I'm surrounded by good company
and delicious food.
I'm a night owl, and I'm curious about dreams. I often journal my own dreams and try to interpret their meaning, and I enjoy helping others assign meaning to their dreams. I also really enjoy meeting new people by interacting with my community, and I look forward to meeting you!
