Jolanta Szulc, PhD., is the Clinical Director of Psychological Services & Health Counseling at the New York Center for Innovative Medicine (NYCIM). She holds a Master of Science degree in Experimental Psychology from C.W. Post Long Island University, and Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology as well as doctoral degree in Clinical/Health Psychology from Fielding Graduate University.
Before becoming a health psychologist at NYCIM she worked as a licensed Biofeedback, Neurofeedback and Qualitative EEG practitioner at Long Island Pain Treatment Center in Plainview, NY, and later at Manhattan Advanced Medicine in New York, NY. Throughout her professional career, she has attended many international conferences and seminars featuring unorthodox approaches to psychotherapy and energy medicine including training in ACMOS Energy Balancing, Bert Hellinger’s Family Constellations, Emotional Freedom Technique, and David Hawkins’ Transcending Levels of Consciousness.
Her approach to psychotherapy is holistic and eclectic in nature, depending on the particular need of the patient, and focuses on how mental, emotional, social, and spiritual factors affect a person's physical well-being. The emphasis is always on the whole person—body, mind and spirit.
The correlation between stress, emotions, and physiological well-being has been well established, and at the New York Center for Innovative Medicine, the entire medical staff works alongside Dr. Jolanta Szulc to provide patients with the right solutions to all the emotional factors contributing to their illness. Offering advanced options such as neuro-behavioral and mindfulness training, cognitive therapy, stress management, heart rate variability training, and for some clients who require processing of old traumas and conflicts, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is being offered. However, one of the most important modalities utilized is a newly emerging Quantum Psychology based on a new generation biofeedback - LIFE biofeedback System, together with quantum counseling based on transcending levels of consciousness.
About L.I.F.E. System
The L.I.F.E. System is a new generation of biofeedback based an evoked potential. Information obtained via electrodes placed on the body provides clues to the wellness of an individual at an energy field (subtle plane level). A similar system is being used in space to provide astronauts with certain frequencies that they lose while in space. The computer reads an individual’s energy field and generates the list of items that the body perceives as potential emotional stressors. The computer evaluates and re-processes this information and then feedback is given back to the patient to offset the stressful reactions. This process merely assists the body’s own natural defense mechanisms by encouraging energetic balance and harmony. In this manner, each person is assessed and treated based on their unique needs.
The sophisticated system also allows the patient to become aware of the multitude of stressors and how to make a conscious decision in dealing with them in the most beneficial manner. This is done by recognizing that all thoughts and emotions have particular qualities and frequencies, and corresponding levels of consciousness that either help us to heal and support our well-being or sabotage our health and well-being. As a result, we are able to provide treatment for a wide range of emotional issues which allows us to guide patients to make significant positive changes in their lives and regain their health: physically, emotionally, and spiritually by changing their way of being in the world and developing healthier habits and lifestyle. Of course this can only be achieved with total willingness and cooperation of the patient. We are sensitive to patient’s spirituality, and if they desire, we incorporate it into the therapeutic relationship.
The warm, professional atmosphere and nonjudgmental, safe environment established at the New York Center for Innovative Medicine helps patients face their deeply hidden issues without fear of being blamed or criticized. Only then can one start transforming their lives into healthier and more meaningful ones, and become the best version of themselves. To help patients with the process of change and further motivate them to stay on the task, we provide handouts and educational material that feature our holistic approach.
