About Me

Gulnora Hundley
PhD, LMHC

 

I was born in Uzbekistan, one of the former Soviet Union republics. I received a Doctor of Medicine Degree (MD) from Tashkent State Medical School and worked for 10 years as a hospital staff psychiatrist. I also received a Candidate of Science Degree (Ph.D. equivalent) from the Institute of Mental Health in Moscow, Russia. I immigrated to the United States in 1994 and completed graduate studies (Masters and PhD) at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I am a licensed mental health counselor by the Florida Department of Health (License # MH 9563) to provide psychotherapy services and I have extensive experiences treating adults with a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, phobias, depression, bipolar, relationship issues and life transitions.

I am fully trilingual (English/Russian/Uzbek) and practice psychotherapy in 3 languages.

Treatment Approach

To help achieve emotional tranquility and peace of mind I utilize various approaches and perspectives when working with clients in therapy.  Though I use a Client Centered and Experiential approaches the majority of the time, I may integrate other techniques and tools such as Neurofeedback, sand tray or art as a method of therapy.

I have specialized training in Clinical Hypnosis (hypnosis.com/faqs.aspx), Nerofeedback (zengar.com) and Couples Communication Skills (www.couplecommunication.com, www.prepare-enrich.com).

I believe that all human beings have the potential to live productive lives. Unfortunately some may feel that happiness and self actualization is beyond their control. My role is to provide a trusting, nonjudgmental environment that will facilitate the process of reorganization of each individual’s perceptions and transformation to a new sense of self. I conduct therapy that gives clients a safe relationship in which to explore their inner world and to consider taking risks in their external one.

“Happiness is what finds you when you are loafing up to your potential.”
