Since early adolescence I have been interested in holistic psychology. My background is in holistic psychology and mindfulness, somatic psychology that examines the body-mind relationship. I work mainly from a trauma-informed perspective, and I utilize evidence-based approach such as CBT when needed. I have been working with people for over ten years. I view psychotherapy mainly as necessary self-care, a space to be with yourself and connect with your inner life. It is less place for advice or “fixing”, and more a place for attunement and improved self-awareness. Painful experiences often offers deeper insight and can help to guide us to better understanding of ourselves on our path to inner healing.
I earned my formal education first at State University of New York and then at NYU. I was also trained to practice EMDR method in New York which I believe to be an efficient method to process traumatic experiences. I am certified in CBT and hypnotherapy. I continuously look for new methods and ways to heal emotional and psychological wounds. I am also a certified yoga teacher and a regression therapist certified by Dr. Brian Weiss. I am trained in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy at the Integral Psychiatry Institute in Colorado.
My approach is holistic, and I specialize in trauma. I view each client as a unique individual with immense inner potential for growth. I think that it is precisely at the time of our pain – presenting as depression, anxiety, feeling stuck, overwhelm, loss or grief – that we are provided with an opportunity to tap into our inner healing power. I think the therapeutic alliance between myself and my client is crucial for the therapy to be successful. So let's talk to see if we our a good fit for each other.
