Psychotherapy is about providing people with a real relationship in which one can complete developmental struggles, unearth buried strengths, revisit wounds while being accompanied by an ally, and finally graduate from the therapeutic relationship feeling both self-sufficient and connected to others. I believe therapy is a tool everyone can use at some point in their lives. Often times this is during a time of transition, something new in your life may bring up feelings of fear, sadness, or even anger. It is important throughout our lives to continue to seek and find meaning in whatever way makes sense to you. Best of all therapy pays for itself, in the end, you will have more clarity and be able to begin focusing on what’s important to you with fewer interference’s. The decision to pursue therapy is a personal one. It is also a courageous and bold step in one’s life. I believe that all persons have an innate strength and ability to contribute to their own healing and growth.

Clinical Psychologist | Psychological Assessment Specialist
As a therapist, it is gratifying to participate in a person’s process of change and growth. I like to help people discover new insights about themselves, and how they feel and behave in relationships with others. This awareness, as well as recognizing how past experiences impact current behavior and feelings, can be empowering and helpful in changing old patterns. We tend to withdraw and silence ourselves when we actually should talk and discuss our concerns and issues. Our lives are so complicated by ourselves and by others surrounding us and we often are lost in the dynamics of past or present fears, sadness, dependence and co-dependence. It is extremely difficult to gain full awareness of such dynamics and integrate it on our own – while fighting feelings of inadequacy, fear of rejection and sense of abandonment. Very often a warm and understanding psychotherapist becomes the only point of emotional anchorage in the fight for one’s integration necessary on the path to one’s peace of mind, self-realization, and happiness.

Concerning my interests and hobbies, I enjoy playing sports. I try to exercise as many times as necessary because I consider that a healthy body entails a healthy mind. Since I was seven years, I became passionate about Tennis. I used to practice it every day, and with time, I started playing it at a professional level. However, a few years after, I stepped aside after I got immersed in my other biggest passion, psychology. Sports is not the only thing I fancy. I am an active reader, and I try to enjoy a nice book before going to bed. I believe it is essential to exercise my mind and body, but it is equally important to take time for myself and rest. Moreover, I love spending time watching movies and series alone, with friends or family. Traveling also forms an important part of my life. I have had the pleasure and opportunity to travel to various cities and countries while learning about different cultures and people. Hopefully, I have the possibility of keep doing it.
En cuanto a mis intereses y aficiones, disfruto haciendo deporte. Intento hacer ejercicio tantas veces como sea necesario porque considero que un cuerpo sano implica una mente sana. Desde que tenía siete años, me apasiona el tenis. Solía practicarlo todos los días y, con el tiempo, comencé a jugar a nivel profesional. Sin embargo, unos años después, me hice a un lado después de sumergirme en mi otra gran pasión, la psicología. El deporte no es lo único que me gusta. Soy una lectora activa e intento disfrutar de un buen libro antes de acostarme. Considero que es esencial ejercitar mi mente y mi cuerpo, pero es igual de importante tomarme un tiempo para mi misma y descansar. Además, me encanta pasar tiempo viendo películas y series sola, con amigos o con mi familia. Viajar también forma una parte importante de mi vida. He tenido el placer y la oportunidad de viajar a varias ciudades y países mientras aprendía sobre diferentes culturas y personas. Ojalá tenga la posibilidad de seguir haciéndolo.
