Although he has 30 years of experience within psychiatry and psychotherapy, it was not within these mental health fields that Dr. Pablo Jeczmien began his medical profession. As a young man starting his career, Jeczmien trained as a heart surgeon, and within a highly recognized and valued medical unit. However, he swiftly realized that surgery was not where his medical passion lied. Rather, he felt a personal tug toward people and the psychological realm. He shifted his training at that point and pursued interests in psychoanalysis within psychology and psychiatry. He started practicing within the field soon thereafter, treating patients in his next three decades as well as working in a managerial function and university education.
