Originally from Europe, I lived for many years in Mexico before coming to the USA. Living in different places and cultures gave me a brought scope of life experiences, openness and a capacity of non-judgment when it comes to human diversity. I have a Master’s degree in Family Therapy from Universidad del Noreste, in Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. Apart of the theoretical knowledge, Universidad del Noreste taught me a lot about Mexican couples and families and Antioch University taught me a great deal about minorities, discrimination, social justice and again human diversity. I have been practicing psychotherapy for 15+ years. I did a 2-year and 5-month internship at the Jung Institute of Los Angeles, where I received training in Jungian-oriented psychotherapy, which I continued by working as an intern with Dr. Susan Frankel, certified Jungian analyst, in her private practice for another year and 8 months. I hold a Certificate in Jungian Studies and a Certificate in Individual Systemic Therapy. Currently I am enrolled in a 3-year Somatic Experiencing training program in order to get certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner.

What I am like as a therapist I'm a very empathetic, compassionate person and I'm easily touched by people's stories. I am passionate about what I do and I love helping people to feel more accepting of themselves and loving themselves the way they are. It is very rewarding to me to see people heal and becoming happier and more authentic. I feel intrigued to investigate with you what is going on inside you, in your unconscious (the part of our mind we normally don't have access to, but that largely influences what we feel, think and how we act). When I listen to people's stories, I suspend all judgment. I believe that we all do our best with the resources and limitations we have and the baggage we carry around as a result of trauma and other difficult life situations. I value the trust my patients put in me and we develop strong relationships over time. Most of my patients have been working with me over the course of at least two years. I care deeply for all of them and I have been honored to be the witness of their progress and growth.
