A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!
- Nikola Tesla

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

My Story

With 30 years of clinical practice, I offer psychotherapy and consultations for individuals, couples & families. Having lived, worked, and trained both in Belgrade and New York City, I bring my skills and experience as a clinical psychologist, teacher, supervisor, and public speaker. With deep roots in two countries, my professional and personal life has been about moving between multiple languages and cultures.

I treat people with a wide range of difficulties in living. Drawing from my own personal experiences as an immigrant woman, I have developed a particular interest in working with people who are transitioning between cultures. Whether we came to this country by choice or whether the decision was made out of necessity, immigration experiences shape our relationships with others. In my work, I focus on intergenerational relationships, as individuals and families make these life transitions.

I also specialize in complex trauma, issues of domestic violence, as well as child and adult sexual abuse.

Over the years, I have been privileged to study and work in a variety of academic and clinical settings both in New York and internationally. My professional engagements include: work as an adjunct professor at Columbia University, clinical faculty at NYU School of Medicine, alumna of the Ackerman Institute for the Family, board of directors at American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA), University of Belgrade, Tavistock Clinic, University of Sarajevo, International Family Therapy Association (IFTA).

Vlade Divac

A first round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1989 NBA draft, Vlade Divac went on to become one of the first European players to have an impact on the NBA.

In 1985, Vlade Divac was one of 15 young boys from Slovenia, Bosna, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Macedonia that won the gold medal in the University Games. This would prove to be a basketball team that is considered among the best ever assembled. They went on to win a gold medal at the European Junior Championships in 1986, a gold medal at the FIB A World Junior Championships in Bormio, Italy in 1987 (defeating Team USA twice in that tournament), and a silver medal representing Yugoslavia at the 1988 Olympics.

An Unconventional Handbook of Orthodox Theology

by Rev. Vladan Perisic

Foreword
by Fr John Behr

It is a great pleasure to see this work published, making available some of the most important writings of Fr Vladan Perisic over the last couple of decades available, together in one volume, to an English speaking audience. Fr Vladan’s work is well known in Serbia, and in broader academic and ecumenical circles. But it can now receive the much wider readership that it deserves, and, as a collected volume, its scope, coherence, and significance is sure to receive the recognition it deserves.

The eighteen essays collected here treat diverse topics, from academic theology (and its place in the Church) to questions of life and death, from historically oriented studies, on Sts Ignatius and Gregory Palamas, to contemporary issues, such as human rights and ecology. Each of them is characterized by meticulous scholarship and great insight, clarity of thought and expression.
