About Renata

I am a licensed psychotherapist (MFC48444) with a private practice in Berkeley, CA. I have worked extensively with adults, couples, families, and adolescents in a variety of settings for over a decade. As an Assistant Professor in Europe I taught university psychology courses for five years in classroom and clinical settings. I received my MA in Psychology at the University of Gdańsk and completed a four-year postgraduate training in psychotherapy as well as a two-year group training in psychodrama. I also graduated from The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley's two-year advanced psychodynamic psychotherapy training program.

I'm dedicated to helping my clients achieve desirable and lasting change, starting by looking closely at what holds them back and what is most painful in their lives. Whether it is a cycle of difficult emotions, unwanted behaviors, or relationship difficulties, I believe it is crucial to discover the meaning behind these experiences. Through our work together I help my clients develop new tools to transform their lives and make them more satisfying.

My Professional Affiliations include:
Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology
The Psychotherapy Institute
Survivors International
