Olga has had a diverse career—exploring the jungles of South America as a photojournalist with WWF International in Switzerland; working as an editor in the highly political arena of the United Nations in Geneva; writing some 200 articles on alternative health, personal growth, relationships and the environment; operating her own publishing company for non-fiction authors; and working as a magazine editor and writer, while developing her ground-breaking approach to relationships and personal empowerment.
Through the study of human dynamics, Olga gained an understanding of the mind-body connection and the power and purpose of negative subconscious programming. She realized that certain 'missing pieces' in our emotional and psychological make-up determine the way we live and the people, situations and circumstances that we attract.
In her 15 years of private practice, Olga has developed techniques that help her clients to become empowered, break out of dysfunctional cycles and take control of their lives.
"My goal is to empower you to live fully, with a complete understanding of the true driving
forces in your life. I won't give you educated guesses or generalized theories. What I will give you is a system for making sense of your life, transforming your subconscious programming, and creating the circumstances you desire."
Olga has trained in several branches of kinesiology, Body Alignment Technique, intuitive and energetic healing, interpersonal dynamics and conflict resolution. She has also studied nutrition and metabolic therapy. She works internationally, offering private consultations, empowerment intensives, customized coaching and online training, dedicated to helping people transform their relationships, health, performance, finances and happiness quotient.
