“Dr. Ambardar has tremendous insight into personal and collective trauma and the impact of ancestral trauma on a person's life.

I highly recommend anyone wanting to connect with their ancestral histories, collective trauma, and current life experiences to work with Dr. Ambardar. She is a caring professional.”
