“I had the pleasure of a session with Islena who is superbly suited for this role and easy to talk to. She approached difficult subject matters compassionately, and within a short time, I learned new insights about how I interpret the world. Through the awareness I now have, I am confident that what used to challenge me, I can now more comfortably tackle. I recommend anyone wanting to experience transformation and healing to hire Islena to work her magic!” -Paul Krismer, CEO, Happiness

“For as long as I can remember, my cycle of thoughts led me to become depressed and anxiety-ridden. For the past 10 years, I’ve been to many psychologists and psychiatrists, spending a lot of hours and finances to sort things out, but it continued to get worse. After working with Islena for a month, I noticed a dramatic change in my mindset, outlook on life, and overall feeling of self worth. She helped me see where I was a prisoner to my thoughts because of my perception of past events, and that my beliefs and opinions were not what was necessarily true. She helped me see reality for what it actually is. Since working with her, my anxiety has nearly vanished and my depression is beginning to lift. Islena has given me my life back, and I cannot think of anyone else that I would rather ask to help my mental and emotional well being.” -Dan Krozonouski, Ontario

“I had the great pleasure to work with Islena over the past two months. As a person suffering from anxiety on and off throughout my life and had attempted to meet different professionals on many different occasions, I can honestly say she has been the only one that has made a huge difference in my life. The shift in my thinking has been life altering.” -Lori Watts

“Unbelievably powerful. I can’t believe how much lighter I felt after our first session! After shutting down for so many years and having an illness, I’m thankful for Islena’s help & guidance to find myself and get my life in balance.” -Tonya H, Nebraska

“I was referred to Islena through my health care practitioner as I was struggling to move from past traumas and wanted to free myself from being stuck in views that no longer served me. I scheduled 3 appointments with her. Our first conversation was met with Islena‚Äôs profound understanding of just where I was in this process. Her wisdom and ability to hone in on my life experience was immediately impressive. Islena is very skilled in talking through deep issues & she showed me how reframing our perceptions can make a huge difference in my well being. There were many breakthroughs in our sessions and as a result, my life is changed for the better, due to her knowledge, compassion & understanding. I would highly recommend Islena for working through issues.” -Dede, New York

“Before working with Islena, I worked with countless other practitioners and healing modalities; desperate to feel better. After two sessions with Islena, we uncovered deep core issues and beliefs that had been controlling my life. I felt a profound internal shift and literally a weight had been lifted. I feel a new clarity & sense of deep peace I’ve never known before, with strength, confidence, and courage to face my deepest fears, and a newfound hope for a new chapter in my life. I’m so grateful for her work!” ~Mandy McDonald, Colorado
