My Approach

With deep compassion, a courageous heart and a warm and calming presence, I companion individuals and families through grief and loss, personal transformation, chronic illness and the mysteries of death and dying. Combining years as an interfaith hospital chaplain with potent personal experience, a deeply empathic heart and skills from neuroscience, mindfulness and meditative practice, I honor the holistic and somatic impact of loss, and the challenges of personal growth. Together we will hold space for your deeper story to unfold.

My Background

Anat graduated with a Master's degree from Sofia University in Transpersonal Psychology in 2010 and in 2013 completed a residency year of post-graduate training at Emanuel Medical Center (Clinical Pastoral Education) where she served on staff several years as an interfaith chaplain before joining OHSU's Bridges Pediatric Palliative Care team in 2017. She has deepened her practice with the M.E.T.A. Institute, studying Hakomi, a somatic and mindfulness based therapeutic modality and is a certified Compassionate Bereavement Care provider through the MISS Foundation. Working at a level 1 trauma center has given her extensive experience in companioning families and individuals through traumatic events, acute crisis and sudden loss, providing a warm and calming and presence for those facing significant life changes.
