A turning point came into Carla's life
several years ago when the work of Abraham Hicks became a great
source of inspiration and insights on the most profound life
questions, as with Doreen Virtue's Angel Therapy and Brandon Bays "the Healing Journey".

times facilitator for empowerment, personal growth, couple -relationships and Family-Harmony workshops. As her
practice grew, Carla observed that a combination of traditional
and metaphysical approaches appear to yield the highest quality
healing and harmony, motivating her to expand her studies to include a
variety of modalities.
After moving to
United States with her family in 2004, she pursued her vision of
bridging traditional and metaphysical approaches by delving into
a doctoral program in Transpersonal Counseling, which she
completes in 2012 (University of Metaphysical Sciences, MN
