Ana Maria Cardoso, Ph.D.
Hi, my name is Ana Maria and I am delighted you found your way to my website!
Here is a little bit of my story and how my trajectory to this work.
I started my professional life as a passionate Biologist, earned a PhD in the field of genetics, and became a professor/researcher at the University of Campinas – UNICAMP – in Brazil.
After ten years in the field my life turned 180 degrees when a spiritual life was shown to me and I moved to California. This inner journey helped me to become deeply present to myself and others and that beautifully refined the quality of the attention I give to others.
Later I experienced another huge shift when I discovered the fascinating field of neuroscience in my personal quest to understand human behavior, and find solutions for problems I had in my own life; and that led me to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and its amazing ability to bring change to deep, long-standing negative life patterns. Family Constellations is another modality offering unexpected ways of helping people to shift in areas that have felt unresolved their entire life. I earned my NLP Master Practitioner certificate, and also trained as a Family Constellations Facilitator under the leading trainers at the internationally known school, NLP Marin.
