"Not till we are lost, do we begin to find ourselves!" - Thoreau. When what we want does not come or when we get what we don't want, we experience disappointment. When we give voice to our pain, what becomes evident is the fact that in given situation, we are not resting in our true nature. In the safe atmosphere of a therapist's office, we engage in a dialogue addressing the pain of unwanted experiences. We explore how our interaction with the world can be restructured in such a way that we live more satisfying life and rest more in our true nature.

As a relational gestalt therapist, specializing in mindfulness and compassion-based treatment, I use a variety of techniques, finding what works best for you. These techniques may include, but are not limited to dialogue, mindfulness meditation, embodied field practices, emotional freedom techniques, and role-playing. Each therapy session is created according to your needs.

I am interested in creating a space in which to connect with the capacity within to discover what is needed for cultivating a kinder, more compassionate relationship toward oneself and others. I am supportive and non-judgemental, being fully present and empathetic throughout the process.

Marina Riker-Kucic's Groups

Mindful Moment (Practicing Mindfulness)

This group is about practicing mindfulness as the art of being open, aware and awake of the present moment, to whatever arises. Meet to practice and learn to stop and to be present in the here and now; "no worries, no planning, no need to hurry". Mindful Moment group is composed of the following practices: Mindful Movements and Walking Meditation (light physical activity in which movements are coordinated to be in harmony with breathing), Songs for Practice (mindfulness in breathing and sounding), Sitting Meditation (mindfulness in centering and practicing loving-kindness and compassion). Each session is one hour long.
