Ms Jerica Furman received her M. A. in Psychology with an Emphasis in Counseling from Webster University, Leiden. Alongside she found herself delving into the studies of Brain-spotting, Somatic Experiencing, and Rhythm of Regulation. The gifts of these modalities are many and they offer a chance to move away from pathologizing and the focus on “what is wrong” and allow us to reinforce our biology’s signals of healing and growth. In her practice, she has the honor of working with the bravest and most inspiring individuals and she supports them in finding more sense of ease, trust, and purpose. She is passionate about yoga, cooking, nature, and mindfulness and bringing those gifts to her community.
Ms Sumeyye Ucmaz completed a degree in Computer Education and Instructional Technology and is currently reading for a Master degree in the same field. She has worked with children as a computer teacher, which gave her the skills to work well with children. She believes that each child is unique and their needs should be attended to individually. She likes helping people, spending time with children, doing yoga, and exploring new cities.
