i joined this because although i love to do things, be with people who care about me and remind myself how fun life can be.. i am lonely even with im with my friends and family, i am sad even when im smiling, i am insecure and full an anxiety yet would never dare to show that side to the world. I want to be confident and happy. I want to make decisions and better myself and worry less. i want to be fearless and embrace life. I want to have meaningful relationships with my family and friends and now i feel as though i;ve lost everything that makes me who i am and what has previously always drawn people to me. I have a best friend but her life always seems so full and she is fearless and at times i feel like i need her to tell me everythings going to be okay but i have nothing to offer her or anyone anymore if i always feel so insecure and worthless. i think i lost myself when i went overseas and i did not know how to act or be and for the first time i was alone and forced to find myself but in realty i lost myself. (IM BABBLING AND THIS MAY NOT MAKE SENSE). i dated a boy who loved me for years before we dated, it was the best relationship and he was my best friend, the most passionate love i have ever felt. i feel so lost that i can not even be myself around him and i am pushing him away as well as everyone else in my life. i feel judged and insecure around my roommates and i feel so lost in my own apartment. my relationship with my dad has zero depth left to it and he has destroyed his relationship with my sister. my issuescan not be solved when i can never pin point whats wrong or face my fear of losing people. i used to be so sure of who i was and what i wanted to do with my life. now im lost and confused with noone in my life beside me to listen or help. i want to lose weight and feel like that would solve problems but i know i dont need to. i feel like i have the worst memory ever now and im worried im losing interest in people as i constantly worry about myself. i need to find myself in something i love but i cant even think of something im passionate enough about to throw myself into to figure everything out. i want to be the person i put on the act that i am because in the few moments i feel alive i feel so happy, but when the moment passes i turn back into the insecure worried soul that is not at peace with herself. i want to be needed i love to feel needed, my family doesnt need me, my friends dont need me, my boy doesnt need me, im not enough for anyone. i need to find a way to love myself before anyone of those people can love me again. i wish i knew how to do so, i cant throw myself into sports anymore, im too out of shape to run, i have no patience in my drawings anymore, im not doing well at school nor am i passionate about it, partyings fun but its never satisfying when i feel like if i wasnt at the party it wouldnt make a difference. i want answers and have no idea how to find them. i want therapy but also would rather do this for myself and on my own, i also dont want to be a loner while finding happiness with myself. my step sister and friend have both tried to commit suicide and preach to people about how they are in therapy and are so depressed and anxious but thats not me and when i hear them preaching these things the only thing that comes to mind is that i know how there feeling and i feel worse because i cant even admit it outloud to anyone. suicide? id never do it but i get scared because it crosses my mind and i get so scared like i have no control of my thoughts even though i know i never would want that EVER. my lack of family stability leaves me searching to be needed from friends and people i meet and how can i expect people to need me like im family when they arent actually my family. this is my first post so my mind is everywhere and im blurting out complaints because i get in moods where i dont know what i have anymore.

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.

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.
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.
