I work with children and adults, in individual sessions and groups. Adults: I see you as creative, resourceful, and whole on your own. I am here to help you heal wounds that keep you stuck and don't let you believe in your own strengths and intuition. I can offer curious questions, valuable resources and tools to add to your own toolbelt, new perspectives, and challenges that honor your goals and what you need to live your best life. I also provide Authentic Movement groups for all genders, experiential creative workshops for couples, adults, women, and soon for men and for therapists, and the Female Rainbow Retreat in Greece.
In my work for children: I can help you to improve your parenting skills and/or I can help your child to process the BIG feelings that affect negatively their behavior. My goal is to facilitate their emotional and cognitive development, help them gain better social skills, and support them in challenging transitions.
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Licensed Psychologist from Greece, specialized in Authentic Movement and Expressive Arts Therapy. I speak fluent English, Spanish, Greek. I am happy to talk with you briefly over the phone for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit. Reaching out is the first step to your transformation!

Maria Lentzou's Groups

Authentic Movement

Connect with your essence. Express your soul. Authentic Movement is an inner self-directed somatic practice. It is done with eyes closed, in silence and in the presence of at least one witness. Through 'body-mindful' listening participants follow movement impulses, reawakening essential body wisdom and deepening empathy with self and others. After the experience participants have talked about feeling more centered and attuned to their feelings, more aware of the obstacles that impede connection with themselves, fulfilled by having creatively explored their inner world, reconnected with the wisdom of their body and with their spirituality.

More about this group

Female Rainbow Workshops

Join us to explore the diverse aspects of our female identity that are strong, vulnerable and multifaceted like a rainbow. We use Greek myths, Authentic Movement explorations and Expressive Art activities to invoke the qualities of the powerful archetypes of the Greek goddesses in our embodied presence, to better understand their influence in our lives and gain powerful insights that provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness. Each workshop is independent and will help you understand the qualities and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes to become a better "heroine" in your own life story.
