Antonieta Contreras, a former banker and consultant originally educated as a mathematician is a Gestalt-trained psychotherapist who graduated with a Master’s in Social Work from NYU. After a few years of working at agencies with highly traumatized people, she received a specialization in Trauma Studies from the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapies (ICP) and in Human Sexuality from NYU School of Medicine. She maintains a private practice where she combines different trauma modalities she is certified in, as well as the contemplative techniques that she learned in India and from Tibetan Buddhist traditions. She has contributed to several non-for-profit organizations in different volunteer roles including two Buddhist organizations. She is a consultant, supervisor, and faculty at ICP where she spent years building and teaching the curriculum of a postgraduate program for clinicians to become trauma therapists. She also teaches at NYU a class in sexual trauma, runs Trauma-Focused and EMDR groups toward certification, and has given talks in hospitals, agencies, and universities with the purpose of creating awareness about trauma.
