Dr. Slebodnik's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Slebodnik "Have you heard "I don't know about transgender, but I'm willing to learn!" from your therapist? It's not ethical to ask your patient to teach you how to treat them. I've had the pleasure of helping hundreds of trans-patients transition over the past 9 years! Have you had a therapist frown at you when you expressed that you are in a Triad or Polyamorous relationship? Have you tested the water with a counselor regarding incest or sexual abuse that you experienced only to have that counselor recoil, or flinch, or worse yet...change the subject? These are examples of inexperience or biases. I am very well versed and knowledgeable in the abovementioned topics and can assure you that you can speak to me openly about them without fear of judgment. Something that I hear frequently from my patients is that they feel an "instant deep connection" with me. I have been told that I am "very easy to talk to". I pride myself on providing non-judgemental, casual, compassionate, and collaborative care to those who allow me into their most vulnerable and private thoughts and issues. My background & experience are rooted in Gender Dysphoria, Polyamory, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, Incest, & Sexual Trauma. Depression, social anxiety, and adjustment problems are often associated with those topics, and I am confident that I can help you get through these concerns! Let's get started!"

Dr. Slebodnik was so fr4iendly and easy to talk to!! I felt like i knew her for my whole life the first time that i met her and that never changed.

Be careful with having your children see her! She told our child that she has multiple personality disorder in session with her alone. My daughter came out and started asking us questions in the car about this, crying, and was very scared! She was 12! It was never discussed with us, and should...more

To whoever posted this review: I agree that the clinician's behavior was inappropriate! I am appalled that you experienced that unprofessionalism! For your information, however, I have never treated children under the age of 14 and will never in the future. Clearly, you are reviewing the wrong provider. I also do not treat Dissociative Identity Disorder, nor would I diagnose it as 'Multiple Personality Disorder' without further testing by a licensed psychologist experienced in that area.

I can not say enough about this woman! She saved my life and I will never be able to pay her back for it. She helped me see through the gaslighting that my family was putting me through. She helped me see my own worth when I thought that would never happen. She helped me learn better ways of...more
