Dr. Troy Piwowarski
Dr. Troy Piwowarski
I provide individual and group therapy for men in their 20s-50s who have done therapy before and are looking to go deeper. As an individual therapist, I like to be actively involved and give feedback about what I’m noticing in the here-and-now. This gives us a portal into understanding how you get tripped up and where you can lean into a fuller, deeper way of living. My men’s groups are long-term process groups that primarily focus on relationships between members. Group is all about practicing direct, authentic contact and exploring your blocks to getting closer with others.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over ten years of experience. As a therapist, I’m not here to judge you or tell you what’s wrong. Instead, I am here to help you uncover your hidden strengths and harness those abilities to address any challenges or roadblocks you may face. You don’t have to do it alone; we can walk this path together.

As an interactive, solution-focused therapist, my approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I wish to support each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. I specialize in in individual, couples and family therapy addressing mood disorders, trauma and conflict using cognitive behavioral techniques and emotionally focused therapies. Specialties include mood disorders, trauma, and addiction.
My focus has been to help my clients get unstuck from unhelpful behavioral patterns that are typically born out of generational trauma, and teach them ways to attend to their emotional and spiritual needs so that they are less reactive to triggers around them and more intentional with the decisions they make. This applies to couples’ work, addiction counseling, and spiritual healing.

Straightforward, no nonsense approach to psychotherapy without a lot of psychobabble. Helping men deal with depression and anxiety even if they are experiencing outward success. Learning to deal with the inevitable pain and suffering of living when it is not something we normally share with those around us.
I HELP MILLENNIAL AND GEN X PROFESSIONALS CONSCIOUSLY GET WHAT THEY WANT (IN LIFE AND RELATIONSHIPS). Life is overwhelming. Between work, relationships, and technology calling for your attention at every moment, it’s extremely difficult to remain calm and grounded. We can lose our sense of purpose and passion.
Unlike other therapists who merely sit and listen, I take an active and engaged approach. You may find yourself in a guided meditation or a role-play exercise. There may be optional homework assignments. We’ll tune into exactly what you need. I’m here to support you to find your unique, confident voice.
