Life can be overwhelming, so many things coming at us from all different directions. You want support but don't want to be judged or criticized. You want to change or improve something about yourself but not sure what or where to start. This is where someone like me can step in and provide support and guidance in an empathic, compassionate, non-judgmental, and empowering way. My job is not to tell you what to do, but to collaborate with you. I strive to provide a safe space for you to feel comfortable to talk about anything and everything. We are all a work in progress.
My goal is to provide support, validation, and encouragement, along with any tools needed to deal with stress and anything else that's in your way. We often are harshest with ourselves; we can be our own worst critic. I work with clients to help them be kinder to themselves and remind them that a little self-compassion can make a big difference.
It would be a privilege for me to help you through your journey of self-discovery and self-improvement. Feel free to reach out and contact me so we can talk and determine if we are a good fit for each other. Take that first step; the rest of the steps we can take together.
A veces la vida nos abruma, tantas cosas que se nos viene encima a la vez. Necesitas apoyo pero no quieres ser juzgado/a o criticado/a. Quieres mejorar o cambiar algo de ti pero no sabes que ni donde comenzar. Aqui es donde alguien como yo puede unirse contigo y darte el apoyo y guiarte sin prejuicios, sin juzgar, con compasion y empatia. Mi trabajo no es decirte lo que tienes que hacer, si no juntos colaborar. Me esfuerzo para proporcionar un espacio seguro para que te sientas a gusto y con la confianza de platicar de lo que sea. Hay que recordar que nadie es perfecto y que nunca se acaba de aprender nuevas cosas
Les doy a mis clientes apoyo, validacion, y la fomentacion necesaria. Al mismo tiempo dandoles las herramientas necesarias para lidiar con el estres y cualquier otro malestar que tengan. Tenemos la mala costumbre de ser duro con uno mismo; somos nuestros peores criticos. Me esmero en que mis clientes aprendan un poco de auto-compasion cuyo sirve de mucho
Seria un privilegio para mi ayudarte en este camino de auto-descubrimiento y auto- superacion. Te invito a que me contactes para platicar y ver en como te puedo ayudar. Toma ese primer paso, los demas los tomamos juntos.
