Programs for women
Tatiana’s own journey of healing childhood traumas helped her to move from “distress” to “happiness”, from “codependency” to “interdependency”, from “self-hate” to “self-compassion”. She is now committed to supporting other women in their own transformation. She believes that people possess tremendous inner strength and resilience, and they can heal emotional pain and go on with the life filled with joyful moments.
Women who go through her programs learn how to establish healthy boundaries, deepen intimacy with loved ones and approach conflicts in a healthier way. They become more assertive communicating their needs, worry less and have more energy, develop routines to prevent stress and overwhelm, create and enjoy ‘me’ time, regulate better their emotions, feel more appreciated and respected.
Tatiana integrates individual and group therapy as well as life-skills coaching into her work. She regularly holds engaging and interactive workshops for women on topics around mind-body connection, self-care, self-compassion, communications skills, conflict resolution, authenticity and building boundaries.
