Ivana is a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner and a Certified Health and Wellness Coach with NoVA Hypnosis & Wellness.
When she was younger, Ivana thought she wanted to become either a doctor or a pharmacist. She even attended an acclaimed medical high school in Serbia (her native country), which is a preparatory school for Medical and Pharmaceutical Universities. Originally educated as a pharmaceutical technician, Ivana quickly realized that she enjoyed connecting with people more than dispensing medication. After leading the nutrition department for a busy alternative healthcare clinic, she realized that her true passion was psychology and the workings of the human mind. The desire to learn more led her to a BA in Psychology, which she bolstered with additional in-depth training in critical coaching skills such as Motivational Interviewing, Co-Active coaching, and Positive Psychology, as well as holistic care for the whole person.
An avid, life-long learner, Ivana originally became interested in hypnosis as a way to more fully serve her coaching clients. During her certification training, Ivana became hooked on the power and value of hypnosis. Already a believer that our conscious and subconscious minds are our most powerful allies, Ivana began to appreciate that the most direct way to access that power is through hypnosis and coaching. Now an open-minded, accepting, and empathic coach and hypnotist, Ivana puts her multi-layered training and passion to work to help clients feel healthy, whole and resourceful.
A graduate of George Mason University with a Bachelors in Psychology, Ivana completed the Health and Wellness Coaching certification at Georgetown University. Additionally, Ivana is certified in hypnosis, NLP and chronic pain management. She currently lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and two boys, loves hiking, and practices yoga and Transcendental Meditation.
