I serve clients who underwent repetitive difficulties, endured traumas, hardships, and losses big and small. At times it felt as if they were drowning, but they didn't give up. They have big goals and ambitions, and often they are very accomplished. They want to up-level and move to where they want to be, but they feel as if something hidden from their conscious awareness is still holding them back.
I help my clients to remove past programming, restore self-confidence, and eliminate roots of unconscious self-sabotage. I help them identify their strengths and resources so they can move to higher levels of functioning and achievement.
I CREATED A TOOLBOX AND USED EVERY TOOL I'M TEACHING ON MYSELF. I AM MY OWN CASE STUDY. AND I AM HERE TO TELL YOU NO MATTER THE LEVEL OF ADVERSITY, PAIN AND SUFFERING IT’S POSSIBLE TO TRANSCEND YOUR PAST AND NOT ONLY HEAL BUT THRIVE.
Professional Credentials and my story
I hold certification in Art Therapy from Northwestern University, where I studied for two years. And I completed a year-long certification in Positive Psychology, an emerging branch of psychology which studies human well-being, purpose, meaning, resilience and success, studying under Tal Ben-Shahar at Kripalu Center. I am also a contributor to Wholebeing Institute’s blog, where I received Positive Psychology Coaching training.
I have a degree in Economics and built a successful career in User Experience for Fortune 100 companies, leading teams on multi-million projects software design projects. I also speak and conduct workshops and seminars spreading the message of Positive Psychology to corporate employees combined with leading weekly meditations. And I write blog articles with the goal of increasing employee's well-being, productivity and happiness levels.
But most importantly, I am a person who has shed multiple layers of trauma. I practice what I preach because what worked for me and allowed me to rebuild my life, take creative risks and make some drastic life changes was diving deep and working with my childhood programming.
