My Background

Hello everyone, I am the creator of LaLaZen™ and developer of the Catartika™ Method and I'd like to tell you a bit about myself. I am originally from Italy and since I was a little girl I have always loved dance and the arts in general. 
 
I have 30+ years of experience in dance and art, and 8 years of experience as a psychotherapist.
My background and love for dance, art and psychotherapy is what led to the creation of LaLaZen™. 
 
In 1996 I decided to come to the US where, over the years, I obtained a B.A. in Dance, a B.A. in Psychology, an M.A. in Art History, an MSW (Master of Social Work) and a clinical license (LCSW). I am also certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and I specialize in the treatment of trauma and specifically sexual abuse of minors. I have been working as a psychotherapist for both children and adults for about 8 years.
Although there are many sites dedicated to dance, mental health and art, I could never find a website that offered integrated services combining all of those interests. 
LaLaZen is the first site of this kind.
 
I hope you enjoy everything that
LaLaZen has to offer!
