I use the most innovative and highly effective techniques to help you achieve resolution of your problems, including trauma, PTSD, anxiety, phobias, grief, and more. These techniques offer quick, profound solutions to gain clarity and empowerment.
I use a combination of talk therapy and energy therapy, including EMDR, IADC, REIKI, and EFT. The result is an accelerated conclusion of your problems. Many of my clients are surprised at how quickly effects are achieved and they delight in the freedom they never thought possible.
I use powerful techniques to overcome trauma and grief, including war trauma. The death of a loved one, the loss of a partner, a lost career, the loss of confidence, identity, purpose, happiness, piece of mind, meaningful connections, etc. I practice integrative counseling, working with body, mind, and spirit to help you recover - quickly!
Svetla was born in Bulgaria where she earned a Masters Degree in Forestry Engineering. She worked for a company evaluating, mapping and planning forest resources. She also worked as a scientific researcher of natural medicinal plants in the Forestry Institute to the Bulgarian Science Academy.
Svetla and her family lived in Mozambique, Africa for two years where her husband was teaching electronics in the Instituto Industrial de Maputo.
In 1988, Svetla and her family emigrated to the United States. She earned her Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling from the University of Southern Maine in 1999 and has been practicing counseling ever since.
Svetla co-authored a book titled: "Atlas of the Medicinal Plants in Bulgaria." She lives with her family and their three cats in beautiful Portland, Maine.
Svetla worked with my 16-year-old son to help with competition anxiety. He was recruited by Gould Academy to join their snowboard team. Although well trained, he would become anxious in competitions. Svetla spent about an hour with him and taught him EFT techniques to relieve anxiety. He had his first Slopestyle competition this season last Saturday, and he scored third place despite a stressful week at school.
I have experienced EMDR with other providers and NEVER got the results that I've gotten with Svetla. During EMDR sessions she "leave you in it" longer than other providers and really narrows in on the root issue, amazingly quickly. I wouldn't be where I am today without her help. I wholeheartedly recommend Svetla for anyone who had experienced EMDR or anyone just looking for quick and effective relief from anxiety.
I went to see Svetla because I was overwhelmed from my busy work schedule, so much so that I felt a heaviness in my chest. After ONLY 1 session, the heaviness went away. After the second session, I felt so much calmer and dealt with the stressful work situations in a whole different way. I highly recommend Svetla because she helps people get better really quickly.
After having my second surgery on my ankle, I was in a lot of pain. Svetla was amazing! She performed Reiki and not only relieved my pain, but opened my eyes to something new! Before I saw her, I could not drive my 5 speed car. The next day after the session, I was back behind the wheel. I am extremely grateful and would recommend her to anyone.
Svetla did wonderful work with a patient of mine who had a life-long, overwhelming fear of spiders. In fact, this patient nearly caused a car accident when she noticed a spider in her car as she was driving. I don't know what Svetla did, but after one session, the patient's fear had evaporated.
Svetla has a gift and is very knowledgeable in her work.
