MALWINA ANDRUCZYK, LCSW
Everyone deserves to feel at home in their body. I work using an intersectional feminist perspective with a focus on trauma, gender, sexuality, life transitions, feeling stuck, coming out later in life, being a late bloomer, immigration experiences, and navigating neurodivergence. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+, TGNC/NB and queer identified communities.
Working with a therapist as we strive towards our goals of healing can be an act of liberation and a vital part of envisioning a just future for ourselves and the world we live in. The mind and body are impacted when you experience stress and trauma and my approach is to address both using my training in EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy as well as other somatic techniques, parts work, and mindfulness. I create a supportive environment to help my clients generate insight, be self reflective and create change.
I identify as a white, queer, non-binary, 1.5 generation immigrant originally from Poland. I am a clinician with a decade of experience in both clinical and community based practice. My experience includes working at Ackerman Institute's Gender & Family Project, providing supervision for clinicians supporting young people and their families with gender affirming therapy, Safe Horizon Counseling Center, using evidence based treatment modalities to address the impact of trauma, and The Anti-Violence Project, where I focused on working with survivors of intimate partner violence, hate violence, and sexual violence. I utilize anti-racist/anti-oppressive frameworks in my collaborative work with clients and I believe that deeply rooted within each of us are the tools and knowledge for our own growth and healing.
