About

Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, major life transitions, or relationship difficulties, and you are ready to regain your power and capacity for choice, we can work together in a safe, non-judgmental space. I am multicultural and bilingual, I work with clients from diverse backgrounds, with a wide range of life experiences. I am a depth-trained psychotherapist. I introduce a psychodynamic approach including mind, body and soul/spirit in treatment. The therapeutic work leads to exploration, promotes insight and awareness, and stimulates psychological growth, emotional healing, and spiritual transformation
I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute . I am a certified Somatic Psychotherapy practitioner and Yoga Teacher. I also hold a degree in law from University of Buenos Aires Argentina, where I practiced at corporate level for several years.
My personal and professional paths have been rich and full of opportunities to access my inner wisdom, the wisdom that all human beings hold within. We can work together to explore and cultivate your wisdom, envisioning more fulfilling relationships and a better understanding of yourself.
