Meet Beata

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

For the first part of my professional life, I worked as a professor of Applied Linguistics as well as a negotiation specialist and translator for the European market. As a university faculty member, I assisted my students in reaching their goals and supported them as they developed their own distinct professional identities. In 2012, I was invited to teach at Temple University in Philadelphia and emigrated to the United States.


While I love teaching, over time I came to realize that what truly interested me were my students’ life-stories and challenges. I wanted to help them be the authors of their own narratives. This realization led me to transition from teaching to counseling. I obtained a Masters in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College, and after graduation, I taught therapeutic techniques for the college. I worked as an individual and family therapist in community mental health agencies and finally opened a private counseling practice in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia.


I believe that my background in academia, combined with my training in counseling, allows me to offer a holistic approach to supporting my clients as they work towards their goals. In addition, my personal experiences have given me unique insights into the challenges that people face when navigating difficult life transitions. I am passionate about helping people heal from the effects of trauma and empowering them to live their best lives.


I enjoy working with adults from all walks of life, particularly those who have experienced traumatic stress. I also have a special interest in supporting young adults who struggle with identity issues, individuals who want to build healthy relationships and immigrants who feel like 'aliens' in a foreign world.


I provide in-person and telehealth services for individuals and couples. In addition to traditional therapy, I offer ecotherapy sessions.
