I have two passions; 1) I am dedicated to supporting the emotional wellbeing of our youngsters and for that, I provide Expressive Arts and Play Therapy for your child and/or your inner child. I use a relational, dynamic, deep play therapy approach. I 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. Therapy sessions are weekly, and I collaborate as needed with parents and significant others.

2) I am a highly sensitive and proud-to-be female who loves to inspire women to gain self-love through self-validation and acceptance. I facilitate groups, workshops and individual sessions in Authentic Movement; a creative, healing-through-movement spiritual practice, ideal for you who wish for a meaningful connection with yourself and body.

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Licensed Psychologist from Greece. I speak fluent English, Spanish, Greek and I am happy to talk with you briefly over the phone for a free consultation and answer your questions, to see if we are a good fit. You can learn more about me at www.marialentzou.net.

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.
