CRO, Chief Relationships Officer

Marianna’s therapy is a fusion of classic psychoanalysis, emotion focused therapy, hypnotherapy, Gottman method, and mindfulness.

She believes that most relationship problems are related to non-adaptive bonding patterns, and limiting beliefs about themselves and their relationships.  By rewriting these patterns and beliefs she guides clients to create the relationship that they are truly longing for, and help them in deepening their connection with their partners.
