About me:

I started to professionally work as a professional life coach in 1990, and as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist in 1996 at my private practice after having started my personal journey through studies in traditional, transpersonal and integral approaches of psychology, philosophy and education.

I have professional training & degrees in psychology and hypnotherapy -BS-MS-MA-, have worked as a certified psychotherapist since 1993 in South America, as a mental health therapist in California, Arizona and Nevada since December of 2001, and as a psychotherapist and coach in Europe since 2010. My most recent degree is a MA in Integral-Transpersonal-Counseling psychology.

Extensive experience in the psychology, counseling, case management and education fields, lecturing on several topics around philosophy, psychology, education and self-development, and providing clinical and counseling support at different inpatient and outpatient clinics, schools, NGOs and businesses, have allowed me to improve and enrich my experience and competence as a person and as a professional, being culturally sensitive and integral in my approach. I have worked in the United States, Europe and South America with very culturally diverse and multilingual populations, face to face, by phone and online.

We use to have hard times whenever we face difficulties that challenge our ego. Most of the time, we tend to avoid facing these challenges or we do deal with them in destructive ways, mainly because of not having learned more assertive and functional ways to take care of ourselves, relationships and circumstances in life.

My approach is focused on promoting your insight about why you think, feel and react the way you do, to support you to take advantage of your own skills and potential and to guide you on working on yourself, your emotional needs, wounds and fears, those that are not allowing you to mindfully and gently take good care of yourself, life and your relationships with others.

I do take into account exploring and working on the issues affecting your mood and functioning, and facilitating the learning of personal tools that would allow you to ventilate, understand and process feelings, as well as to promote concrete positive changes in your life.

You could expect to receive sincere, ethical, assertive and emphatic support even in those moments when denial and avoidance are your worst enemies. I will challenge your ego and promote the awakening and nurturing of your real self.

If you are serious about you self-development or your need to cope with and learn from depression, anxiety or any stressor from your daily life, I would like to offer my support to work with you on this challenging and fulfilling endeavor.
