Do you struggle with a sense of self and lost joy affecting your day-to-day life and relationships? Do you feel exhausted and overwhelmed by not finding the purpose and motivation of your life? Does it affect your personal and professional life? Do you wonder if you have it in you to feel better? Now more than ever, people feel uncertain about finding their place in life, navigating through losses or finding their inner self. Are you wrestling to find a safe and healthy attachment to people, things or situations?
I believe it shouldn’t be so hard to live and feel better. I offer an approach with Kind Therapy customized for each client, permeated with empathy and acceptance. We start with understanding where you are now. We help you by planning how to move toward a meaningful and conscious existence while embracing change and creating new views of life.
I offer over 25 years of experience in a safe environment with virtual appointments to suit your schedule. To share with you this adventure is my goal. You can learn to set boundaries, deal with loss and grief, understand emotions and feelings, and embrace and develop skills and capabilities. Ask today for a 15-minute consultation and take the first step.

My Mexican Indigenous roots are a valuable gift, a profound understanding of death, dying, and the grieving process. My interest in Buddhist philosophy has equipped me with knowledge in Psychology and Thanatology, which enables me to offer a healthy approach to coping with aging and illness.

There is enormous variety in the ways we exist in the world. There is no "one size fits all" approach to my therapeutic style. We will take my Kind Psychotherapy framework and adapt it to fit your needs, goals, and worldview. Above any specific treatment modality, I favour a person-centred approach with unconditional positive regard in an Integrative way.
