About

(

)
We as human beings are impacted by the experiences of our lives even from before birth to present. Sometimes, some of these experiences are so destructive that make us feel trapped, without knowing what to do. In turn, these feelings negatively alter the way we relate to others and ourselves and produce symptoms of depression; anxiety; insecurity; panic attacks; and compulsive, controlling, aggressive or abusive behaviors. All these symptoms are defensive reactions and indicative that something, deep inside us is not well and that we need help.
My passion is to help you free yourself from the root of these symptoms so that you can reach your full potential and live the life you were meant to live, considering the connections between body, mind, and spirit. I offer a warm, safe and compassionate environment. In this process, I work with you through the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM.)
CRM is an advanced therapy for the treatment of traumatic situations (victim of crime, abuse, domestic violence, infidelity, abandonment, attachment disruption) that leave us stuck and stunt healthy emotional growth & personal development. I specialize in providing therapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples & families, and parenting classes.
Los seres humanos somos impactados por las experiencias de nuestras vidas, incluso desde antes del nacimiento. Algunas de estas experiencias son tan destructivas que nos hacen sentir atrapados, sin saber qué hacer. A su vez, estos sentimientos alteran negativamente la forma en que nos relacionamos con los demás y con nosotros mismos produciendo síntomas de depresión, ansiedad, inseguridad, ataques de pánico; y comportamientos compulsivos, controladores, agresivos o abusivos. Todos estos síntomas son reacciones defensivas e indican que algo, en el fondo de nosotros, no está bien y que necesitamos ayuda.
Mi pasión es guiarle a encontrar el origen de estos síntomas y sanar con el propósito de que pueda alcanzar su máximo potencial en todas las áreas de su vida tomando en cuenta las conexiones entre el cuerpo, la mente y el espíritu. Ofrezco un ambiente cálido, seguro y compasivo. En este proceso, trabajo con usted a través del Modelo Integral de Recursos (CRM
CRM es psicoterapia avanzada para el tratamiento de eventos traumáticos (víctima de crímenes, abuso, violencia doméstica, infidelidad, abandono, interrupción del apego, entre otros) que obstaculizan el desarrollo emocional, espiritual y personal saludable. Me especializo en terapia para niños, adolescentes, adultos, parejas, familias; y clases para padres.
