Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
Personal set-backs and conflictual relationships are common problems that we all can face at some point in our lives. My approach is respectful and compassionate. I have doctoral level clinical training, research experience, several publications, and am adjunct faculty at Virginia Tech.
I am a certified coach, Kellogg Executive Scholar in leadership, materials scientist, and Chopra Center certified instructor in Primordial Sound Meditation. And, I don’t quite fit the mold. I see invisible things. As an experimental materials scientist, I studied delicate nanometer structures using high-resolution electron beams. Often, that meant balancing power and sensitivity while patiently retaining focus for an extensive period to notice the subtle unfolding of something new - before it turned visible to anyone else. As a coach, I bring the same optimism, joy, and discipline of discovery when we shine the light on invisible things that a client is looking to bring into focus in a coaching session. I enjoy witnessing my clients’ wonder and awe as they encounter new elements of self for the first time. I listen to the sixth sense. I have cultivated systems thinking in my roles as an engineer and business leader, and I pay close attention to patterns, trends, and interdependencies. I found synchronicity and a sense of timing to hold the most significant power among all variables. In coaching, we directly experience the significance and power of moments big and small as we expand our wisdom to include strategic intuition and a sense of timing. Not all moments may hold equal leverage, but each one is indispensable as they combine to form a unique symphony of our lives. I trust the process and the resourcefulness of our creativity. Growing up in the former Yugoslavia during the civil war and disintegration of the country, I directly witnessed the complexity, strain, and tremendous resilience of the human spirit. Through those experiences, I gained a humbling appreciation for the regenerative powers of hope, curiosity, and love amid uncertainty and sustained collective trauma. In my coaching sessions, I aspire to provide unconditional positive regard, radical acceptance, and full presence for my clients who navigate the deep and cloudy waters of personal transformation.
You are getting things done! You go to work, knock down those goals- your super successful, and yet, things just aren't working. You're not happy, maybe you can't relax. On a normal week-anxiety keeps you up at night. And, with these last few months, you are even more on edge. Maybe it's time you talked to someone who understands the pressures of working and living in the DC area and how to protect your mental wellness.
Everyone struggles at some time or another. That's life. And when the struggle becomes unmanageable, that's where I come in. As a sensorimotor trained therapist I offer a calming, non-judgmental, and supportive environment to explore your struggles. Part of that exploration may involve how your past intrudes upon your present, and your future. We work together to make sense of what is troubling you so you can become empowered to make the changes that will benefit your life. Are you worth that exploration and making those changes? Absolutely! I look forward to connecting with you.
When you experience trauma or stressful life situation, it is not uncommon for your life to feel out of control. I have a passion to help others who have experienced a traumatic event or a stressful life situation.

Struggling with how much your world has changed in such a short time? Feeling anxious, on edge, and uncertain? If your anxiety has been triggered by current events, you are certainly not alone. But in some ways, that makes it harder. Everyone is worried and hurting, including you. You can also feel it tapping into some old stuff, magnifying how lousy you feel. You have worked so hard in your life to feel in charge and on top of things but now feel out of control and helpless. It's not a good feeling. Even worse, your usual coping mechanisms -- going to yoga class, getting coffee with a co-worker, or throwing yourself into work -- have been taken away for now. There's no real end in sight and you're not sure what to do. We understand how awful that feels and want to help. The therapists at Nova Terra Therapy work both online and in-person to help clients like you to identify and deal with both old and new anxiety triggers. We use a variety of approaches but are particular fans of blending cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and EMDR. Using this combination, we help you to get at what's happening in both your mind and your body when it comes to anxiety-provoking or traumatic events. We've found that these two heavily-researched evidence-based treatments are particularly effective at giving our clients efficient, long-standing relief.
My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least. I’ve worked in the mental health field since graduating with my Master’s Degree in 2007. I’ve worked with many different populations in many different settings. Most recently I have been working with clients who desired to end their lives, or who were too sick to go about their daily lives. I’ve also supervised others, taught at a college level, and made presentations to other professionals. In the real world, I’ve worked in the medical field, customer service, and I’ve owned my own business. I believe this varied experience allows me to be more emphatic as well as take a more common sense approach to treatment. I invite you to take a step toward something difficult and do something that is good for you. You always have the opportunity to go back to the way things were; that isn’t challenging in the least.
