I believe humans are perfect manifestation of a higher essence.; as such we are created perfect and unique. In our transit through life, we encounter suffering and setbacks that undermine our self-esteem and affect our personal growth throwing us into despair, usually manifested as anxiety, depression, addictions, and other issues. My approach focuses on journeying back to perfect and unique by understanding from where the anger, frustration, sadness, and fear come, preparing for a whole emotional understanding of the chain of events shadowing our life, and letting our true self manifest fully.
A Humanistic Psychologist, I favor, Gestalt and Existential psychotherapy, operating on the belief that inner conflict within a person is due to that individual's confrontation with the givens of existence, and the need of resolving unfinished "business" and raising her/his awareness of emotions, and behaviors.
After many years of clinical experience, I have learned one size does not fit all, thus I customize my approach my clients' needs. I have also learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; differently from others, I am grateful to those teachers.

We all have the potential to grow our talents and skills to become who we truly are. I learned a lot about myself through Dr. Doris Bersing's teachings and by the embodiment of what she conveys with absolute wisdom. I learned all the reasons and means that helped me to believe in me and my potential in times of struggle and facing big professional challenges. By following her model of the feminine psychology based on self-empowerment, it set in me a core foundation in my everyday life to connect with my feminine qualities as a natural leader. Doris is simply a magnificent human being and very dedicated thrilling professional in the field of mental health, for anyone who wants to experience ultimate optimal health in all the levels.
