Grief & Loss
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #98441
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT 98441) and one of the first European trained practitioners of Prenatal Bonding in the United States. As a native of Hungary, I am fluent in Hungarian and English, understand a fair amount of German and am studying Spanish. In Budapest, Hungary, I had the pleasure of training with the creators of the prenatal bonding method, doctors Raffai Jeno and Hidas Gyorgy and have seen the evidence, first hand, of how much brighter and healthy children can be if given the best possible start.
In both private practice and community mental health settings, I also have over 8 years’ experience working with issues ranging from ADHD, PTSD, depression, anxiety and have helped children and families cope with domestic and sexual abuse as well as parenting difficulties. I work collaboratively with my clients and use an eclectic treatment approach which includes mindfulness-based techniques, humanistic-existential methods, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), attachment theories and family systems models.
My clients gain insights into their difficulties and create positive patterns of behavior by working with me. They have healed from past traumas, repaired broken relationships and achieved a great variety of therapeutic goals. The greatest athletes have coaches that help them to overcome challenges that are holding them back from greatness and therapy works similarly. I believe that therapy is a journey; I did not construct your road but can help to realign you towards your destination.
I will accompany you on your journey to provide you with the support and resources you already know that you need help with, or I may assist you in discovering and overcoming unidentified challenges. Results are important, but success is as much about the journey as the destination, and I am committed to accompanying my clients for as long as they need me to, with dedication and unconditional positive regard.
