Are you ready to journey toward emotional freedom and healing? I’m Mihaela Ivan Holtz, Doctor of Clinical Psychology, and for over two decades, I’ve helped individuals struggling with emotional conflicts, trauma, and creative blocks. As a psychotherapist, I specialize in guiding clients, especially creative professionals, through anxiety, depression, PTSD, and relationship struggles.

I Offer EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy helps heal by guiding individuals through the processing of distressing memories. This reduces emotional impact and promotes resilience. It’s effective for issues like PTSD, anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges.

My name is Mihaela Ivan Holtz, and I specialize in treating my patients with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I’ve honed my expertise in helping creatives and performers while helping individuals from all backgrounds. With over 15 years of experience in the field, I’ve delved deep into the nuanced challenges of the arts and entertainment industry. Recognizing the emotional and relational hurdles that can hinder creativity and performance, I’ve developed tailored strategies to guide clients toward reconnecting with their Creative or Performing Core Self. Through personalized approaches, I empower individuals to overcome obstacles and unlock their full potential in various aspects of life. My practice is committed to supporting clients on their journey toward self-expression, regardless of their background or profession.
