I have had great success with clients who need more than just traditional "talk therapy". I incorporate mind-body techniques, such as Hypnosis/Guided Meditation; Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT); and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). NLP is an approach that focuses on the subconscious mind by studying brain neurology and linguistics.
In addition to being a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am a Professional Life Coach and received my training from the Institute for Life Coach Training which is accredited by the International Coaching Federation. Prior to my private practice, I worked with several prominent agencies in Miami and Broward County.
I believe that we all deserve human rights and be treated with respect regardless of religion, gender, politics, and socioeconomic status. I am an immigrant from Slovenia and over the course of my 20-year clinical practice worked with many immigrants, as well as people from different walks of life. I have studied many religions including Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Shamanism, and have had regular meditation and spiritual practice. My grandmother was a devout Roman Catholic however since my mom was in a Communist party growing up, I grew up as an atheist until my early 30's when I moved to the US and explored spirituality and I am familiar with 12 steps. I believe in compassion and kindness for all and follow many spiritual teachers including Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Khan, and Mariane Williamson.
