About me

Born in Rome (Italy), I lived in the ‘eternal’ city where I studied and worked till the beginning of 1995 before I permanently moved to the United States. I hold a degree in journalism, a Bachelor’s, a Master’s, and a Doctoral degree in Holistic Health, with specializations in Naturopathy and Classical Homeopathy. Furthermore, for some 40 years, I have been practicing my coaching activity with certifications in Anger Management, Conflict Analysis, Negotiation & Conflict Management, and Strategic Communications for Couples. My versatile and eclectic nature, along with a great variety of interests and a holistic and multidisciplinary approach not only to health but, even more so, to life itself, enabled me over the years to publish works on different topics. A complete list of my publications can be found on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Maria-Teresa-De-Donato-PhD/e/B019G68L8Q I am also a freelance journalist, a passionate blogger, and an avid reader.
