    Psychotherapy is a place where hearts and minds meet to make authentic contact. Therapy offers possibilities for discovering who you are, how best to engage with others, and for learning more about the kind of environment you need to flourish most.  I see therapy as a process of awareness-building, one that will help you make responsible choices to live your life to fuller potential.

    In my life, I have had the good fortune of experiencing living in different countries and meeting a diversity of individuals and their challenges. Compassionate support was the key to walking that path and encountering the unknown. Now, in my practice as a psychotherapist, I can walk with others, providing compassion and a deep understanding of their personal route’s challenges.

    In therapy, I will assist you in developing awareness of the unique way you respond, in thought and feeling, both to yourself and others. We also explore how you in turn are impacting the world in which you live and those with whom you interact, both practically and symbolically. You are likely to discover both what you value and what you’d like to change. I will be like a mirror in which you can see yourself and gain deeper consciousness of who you are, and make better and healthier choices with that awareness. Together, we can walk the unknown path in a safe and well-supported way.

    I am bilingual and compassionate, body-oriented in my approach as a Gestalt psychotherapist, and passionate about supporting others who hope to make meaningful changes in their life.

    My body-oriented approach means that in my practice I aim to treat the effects of previous traumas and difficulties clients have experienced through exploration of the mind-body connection. My thoughts and inquiries may often have a body-centric approach to them. The aim is to bring awareness to how the body has held tension, stressors, and trauma. In sessions, depending on your comfort level, we might explore creative visualization, breathwork, grounding and sensation-awareness techniques, and movement.

    Originally from Mexico, I am now practicing in Toronto. I was trained at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto. Because of my background I understand personally and professionally the challenges that a new environment can bring. Now I combine this experience with my passion for helping others.

    As a therapist, I work with an integrative model that includes Gestalt therapy, Somatic work, mindfulness and body awareness.

    I deliver my services in English and Spanish.

    Therapy can be an uncomfortable process because it requires openness and honesty. I offer a free 15-minute consultation online or in person. My hope is that you will feel genuinely respected and comfortable working with me and my approach, which is essential for making the most of your therapy process.
