My passion for integrative therapies began as a teenager in the Soviet Union. I saw a movie about Yoga and was hooked! After immigrating to the US, I began learning all that I could about yoga and other practices including Zen Meditation, Tai Chi and Shiatsu during my undergraduate studies at Boston University.
I discovered quickly that these practices, especially Zen meditation helped me immensely with my own Anxiety and Depression. My desire to help others find similar relief guided my decision to enroll in Master of Social Work program at New York University. During the same period I discovered Huna. The book by Serge Kahili King, Kahuna Healing, felt like a homecoming! I had found my people, my voice and my calling to teach. I began a life long study of Huna, while continuing to study Yoga in the U.S. and
abroad. I began to incorporate the discipline of Martial Arts as well.
My practice of Holistic Psychotherapy was born, addressing all aspects of being physical, mental emotional and spiritual. I combined my love of Integrative Therapies with my love of Social Work, which at its core supports the strength of the individual.
This is my message:
All Power Comes From Within. It is my true joy to help you discover your True Power.
