Welcome! I'm Yulia Kriskovets, a somatic therapist specializing in two powerful modalities: the Feldenkrais Method and Family Constellations. I find meaning in supporting others on their journey of healing and self-discovery.
Life can sometimes leave us feeling stuck, our bodies and minds struggling or even in pain, relationships strained, and careers lacking fulfillment. If you've reached this point of realization, know that you've come to the right place. Both approaches I use are systemic, which means they look at the whole as a sum of its parts rather than holding narrow focus on what hurts right now.
The Feldenkrais Method offers a pathway to reconnecting with your body and discovering new, effective ways of living. Through gentle movements and focused attention, we can increase ease, enhance flexibility, and rediscover the innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. It's about more than just physical improvements; as you become more attuned to your body, the benefits often extend to your thinking, emotional regulation, and problem-solving capabilities. Family Constellations is a gentle and compassionate approach that allows us to explore the hidden patterns and complexities within our family systems, revealing the truths that yearn to be seen and integrated. By exploring representations of our family structures, we can begin to understand the patterns that shaped our thinking. We give space to emotions and sensations that were blocked out, and we start to heal the parts of ourselves that have been hidden. It can feel very vulnerable to start confronting our pain and embracing change. I've navigated my own journey of growth, and it's from this place of empathy and deep compassion that I stand beside you, offering support as we pave the way for healing and lasting transformation.My qualifications:
Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner (trained under David Zemach Bersin)
Trained Family Constellations Facilitator (trained under Elena Veselago and Leslie Nipps)
"I'd never done Feldenkrais before meeting Yulia and now I'm a convert! She gently put my body back into shape and I felt grounded and straighter than ever before. Also have to say Yulia's manner during treatment sessions is lovely and comforting." LAURIE K., Arlington, VA
"I highly recommend Yulia. She was thorough in her exploration of my jaw pain and it’s relationship to other parts of my body. Her explanations were clear and logical, and her touch and manipulation were effective in helping to relieve the pain. The online material she shared is helping me to do appropriate exercises regularly. My situation has been chronic for more than 30 years, so it will take time for new habits to develop and reverse the patterns. I feel fortunate to have found such a skilled professional as Yulia to address this." H.K., TMJ patient, Alexandria, VA
"I just wanted to let you know what great results I got from yesterday’s Feldenkrais. My knee feels better! I can’t believe it - I assumed at best I was facing a multi-week recovery if not permanently damaged. Happy Knees indeed!" - Brenda S., Alexandria, VA
