Katerina is an Integrative Wellness Practitioner and Certified Hypnotist who is passionate about helping people interconnect their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies to maintain or regain wellness and health.
Katerina began her career with a focus on the physical body, which was a natural extension of her role as professional volleyball athlete. She later transferred the physical knowledge she gained on the the volleyball court to assist clients as a fitness coach, which she continues to do today. In working with her clients, many of whom have chronic lifestyle diseases such as depression obesity and diabetes, she realized that medications alone were not adequately addressing their health issues. This led Katerina to actively research alternative methods of treatment for improved health results.

Currently working with variety of clients Katerina uses mind body techniques, such as hypnosis, imagery training, physical movement, kundalini yoga, and energy medicine, to augment the body’s wisdom to heal and improve physical and mental health.
