About Holistic Wellness Solutions: Meet Alicja Matusiak
Alicja Matusiak was born in Poland. As a very good student, she was always starving for knowledge. She was a serious child, the oldest of two. Her father was diagnosed with severe depression and tried to take his own life in 1994. She had a hard time understanding his disease and decided she would focus her life on studying the human mind.
She immigrated to the U.S. in 1999, and worked as a nanny for a few years while attending college in Columbus, Ohio. She acquired a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in social work, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing, and committed herself to serving others who struggle with mental health issues.
She joined the U.S. Army Reserves in 2013 and serves as a psychiatric nurse practitioner, counseling soldiers suffering from trauma or another form of crisis. She worked for various mental health outpatient centers in Columbus, and in 2009 she began working in a private practice setting.
In addition to Holistic Wellness Solutions, Alicja has also formed the Columbus Bachelorettes, an organization for women geared towards helping them find friendships, beat loneliness, and built stronger relationships with themselves and others.
Alicja volunteers for Children Services bi-weekly and spends time with a four girls’ sibling group, trying to impact their lives in a positive way. She has two little dogs, Prince and Carmen, and rescued a little kitten a few weeks ago who joined their family. In her free time, she loves to walk with her puppies and visit local parks.
“Learning never exhausts the mind,” as Leonardo da Vinci once said, and so her dream is to continue learning and serving her community.

Services for Patients:
Mental Health Counseling
Alicja uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and solution focused therapy (SFT) to address your concerns. She believes that together you can analyze your environment, diet, and family relationships to improve your life satisfaction. Dis-ease may be a defense response of your body against stress or something you are trying to ignore in your life. Therapy can help in moving forward, or finding answers to lifelong struggles.
Alicja is trained in traditional clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation, addictions, self-esteem issues, stress management, or other ailments. She is also trained in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy to help victims of severe trauma move past their issues. Hypnosis is a safe and side effect free method to aid traditional therapy approaches. It is not a fix-all and not a miracle treatment. Typically, it takes a few sessions to reach desired results. Some issues must be addressed with multiple strategies and cannot be cured with sole hypnotherapy approach.
Alicja embraces the use of herbal medicine, natural foods, supplements, vitamins, and other natural approaches to health and healing. She believes that a lot of issues can be resolved with very simple and natural approaches. After discussing what you have tried in the past, together Alicja and you will come up with a plan of action. Sometimes, all it takes is to listen to your own body; it knows what you need.
Traditional Psychotropic Medication Management
Alicja is a nurse practitioner able to prescribe a variety of medications to manage mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Some of us deal with symptoms that cannot be addressed purely with talk therapy or herbal medicine; in such cases, we employ the use of prescription medications. Alicja believes in listening to her patients and working together as a team to find the right medications.
Mental Health Expert Witness Services
Alicja has worked with various court systems to provide expert witness testimonies. She has written reports and worked with many immigration attorneys, as well as probate court attorneys. If you are struggling with your case and your attorney has told you that you need an expert witness, Alicja may be the just person to help!
