Hello and thank you for your interest in Deep Connections Counseling!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with more than 15 years experience providing counseling to diverse populations in the United States and other countries.
My clients often tell me that they most appreciate my interactive style, and the accepting, non-judgmental atmosphere I create in our sessions. Clients also comment on my ability to get to the heart of the matter, to put the pieces together and understand the basic issues facing them.
My area of interest includes working with individuals from a multicultural background, and with cross-cultural couples. Having immigrated as a young adult, I have experience that allows me to be especially attuned to multicultural individuals and cross-cultural couples who are straddling two worlds.
In working with individuals, I get them to look at obstacles and other challenging situations as opportunities to grow, to gain a better understanding of themselves and others, and ultimately to gain greater meaning in their life. I will help you make the most of your strengths, and you will discover your capacity for positive change.
In working with couples, I help them to understand the emotional reasons for their disconnection, and I introduce them to the strategies for recreating safe and secure attachments. When we feel disconnected in our relationships, it seems that everything in our life is out of balance. My goal is to help you build stronger connections that will renew and enhance all areas of your life.
I obtained my Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work in 2003, and my PhD in 2015. In addition, I have completed intensive training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Let my education, training, and compassion help you!

My fiancee and I have been attending couples counseling with Dr. Gudor once a week, for approximately a month. I can not explain to you how helpful her advice and emotional basis therapy is to our relationship. The communication between my fiancee and myself has turned a complete 180, and I can say that him and I are the most happy now then ever. Dr. Gudor doesn't focus on the "blame game." She focus's how our actions and words effect our partner's emotions. Trust me, you won't regret it.

I have been seeing Dr. Gudor for years and now she does our marriage counseling. Dr. Gudor is very kind and a great listener. She really takes the time to get to know you as a person; not just as a patient. Dr. Gudor provides great insight to our marriage and gives us practical tips that we see working each week. In addition to all of that, I strongly support and admire women in business.

Kinda is the best therapist I have ever been to. She is calming, easy to talk with, has great insights and is well educated in her field. If I have to move, And can't do online work with her, I will be heartbroken.

Dr. Gudor is very experienced and has a very calming demeanor. She offers realistic guidance that is effective and easy to follow. She's helped me tremendously in a very short period of time. I'd recommend anyone to schedule a session with her.

Many of my experiences with therapists have been bland and not very productive. Kinga has helped me in so many ways. I've never left an appointment feeling like I wasted time and money. Every visit has been beneficial. She has really helped me find the power from within myself to overcome obstacles that have held me back from functioning at my potential. I recommend see her on a regular basis instead of just random visits. I trust her.

dr gudor is the best therapist i've seen over years of therapy. she is most understanding and is genuinely interested in my welfare. before our second meeting, she look up the term "metanoia". i mentioned the term to several other mental health professionals and none cared to check the definition, much less care to understand it's relevance to my situation. from that moment, knew dr gudor was someone special. over the past 6 months of weekly visits, she's offered concrete advice and recommended numerous outside resources to help with my understanding of the topics.
i highly recommend dr gudor to guide and help you with whatever situation you face..

My relationship with my husband has never been stronger. Kinga has helped us learn to feel more comfortable talking to each other about our fears and frustrations as well as the good things. She makes both of us feel safe enough to talk about all the things we've both been too scared to bring up on our own. By addressing these things, we both feel that we can depend on each other again. We laugh and play like we haven't in years! I didn't ask my husband to go to marriage counselling. I just asked if he would go with me to see my counselor because I felt like it was more about our relationship than our marriage. We were committed to each other but not all that happy. I noticed a difference in us after the first session and I highly recommend her! You will both get chances to speak and feel like you are heard! She has made such a possitive impact for us and she can for you, too...just don't take our appointment time :)
