Are you successful but not "truly" happy? Do you feel there is more to life than what you are currently experiencing? Moving abroad, starting college, changing careers, navigating relationship challenges, or adjusting to parenthood are roller coasters. Daily life situations become super-charged with intensified feelings and often times, it is difficult to find the supports you need. I specialize in working with women who straddle multiple roles, women who would like to reconnect with themselves.
My own cultural background and experience living abroad have given me an insight of the challenges of bicultural individuals and families, including expats living between two countries, moms adjusting to and raising children in a new culture, international students, women in multi-cultural relationships, and professional women exploring a career change.
I enjoy being with my clients on their journey to self-development, overcoming challenges and finding the resources to grow and reach their full potential. I offer a warm and collaborative atmosphere to help you explore options, reconnect with your inner compass, and work toward your goals. Are you ready to make yourself a priority?
*Ofreciendo ahora sesiones via tele-conferencia* ¿Sientes que no estás satisfecha con tu vida últimamente? ¿Estás preocupada, confundida o estresada con temas relacionados con tu trabajo, tus relaciones de pareja/familia, tu transición a la maternidad o a una nueva cultura o país? Estoy especializada en ayudar a mujeres que navegan múltiples roles en su vida, incluyendo la maternidad, divorcio, cambios de trayectoria profesional, relaciones de pareja multiculturales y adaptación cultural/migratoria.
Además de mi preparación profesional, mi propia experiencia en estas áreas me ha ayudado a entender las dificultades que mujeres y familias expatriadas afrontan a la hora de ajustarse a cambios en las relaciones sentimentales/amistades, maternidad/fertilidad, desarrollo profesional, o crianza de hijos multi-culturales o con necesidades especiales.
Trabajando juntas, puedo ayudarte a desarrollar habilidades para ser más consciente de cómo patrones de conducta y pensamiento establecidos anteriormente, tienen un impacto en cómo afrontas situaciones de tu vida actual. Ofrezco un espacio de colaboración para ayudarte a reconectar contigo misma y lograr las metas que te propongas.
