Ioana Montel, MSW, MSc, Supervisee in Social Work
Ioana believes that when we know better, we do better. As a trauma-centered practitioner, she helps her clients explore and process the emotions and physical sensations that are interfering with their life. Her approach draws on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR); attachment & polyvagal theories; ego states; and emotionally focused therapy.
Ioana encourages and supports her clients to develop skills that foster safety and connection and help them cope with life challenges, beyond the flight or fight response. Her clinical practice includes working with adults and adolescents experiencing depression, anxiety, attachment injury, trauma & PTSD; life transitions; grief, and loss.
