Integrative Psychotherapy Services
My name is Teresa Goscicki, and I am a master's level psychologist in the state of Michigan (LLP). I earned my Master of Arts degree from Wayne State University in Counseling Psychology in 2014; and have since served clients in community mental health and private group practice settings. My background also includes earning a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology Honors from Wayne State University, and I've completed several additional trainings in the field of psychology to allow me to serve my clients in a number of ways.
I am trained and have experience providing services to individuals facing a variety of different issues and concerns including, but not limited to: Anxiety disorders; depressive and bipolar disorders; personality and attachment disorders, addiction issues; adjustment disorders; and individual treatment of relationship issues. I currently provide therapy services for clients ages 18 and up via Telehealth or in-office.
How Psychotherapy Works with Me:
While I am highly skilled in mental health assessment and diagnosis, I believe that a diagnosis is merely one tool for informing treatment. Regardless of diagnosis, it's very important to me to treat the individual rather than the label. I also strive to help my clients enhance and add value to their lives in addition to alleviating their bothersome symptoms.
The alliance between client and therapist is one of the most important factors in therapy outcome. For this reason, I always strive to build a collaborative professional relationship with my clients that is based on trust and mutual respect. I do this by showing my clients unconditional positive regard that honors their individuality and their ability to choose their own path (self-determination). I provide a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment for my clients to explore and process their issues and concerns. I also encourage clients to learn and develop the skills necessary to create and maintain positive changes in their life long beyond their time in therapy.
Specific therapeutic approaches that I frequently use include an integration of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Self-Compassion and Mindfulness-Based Interventions, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Humanistic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how I can help you achieve greater wellness in your life.
