Dr. Kholodkov may be a good fit for you if...

 you are ready to do some deep work to change patterns in your life or in how you relate to others. You may be troubled with feeling tense and uncomfortable, and find it difficult to pay attention to things that matter to you.


There may be perfectionism that is suffocating you, or endless worries you wish you could soothe. You or your loved one may have a health condition and want support- a new diagnosis, learning about integrative approaches, or identifying how to live your best life in the presence of these conditions.


There may be things that need to be clarified in your relationship(s), renegotiating and strengthening them or finding a way to bring them to an end.


You may also be asking questions about what is meaningful and important, and seek to live your life in a way that feels authentic and embodied.
