Kinga Gudor, PhD, LCSW

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 Social Work 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),  and Internal Family Systems ( IFS) . Let my education, training, and compassion help you! 

I can be reached by phone and texting at 757-319-5416.

What People Are Saying About Kinga

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.

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.
