Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Is there an ache in your heart? A longing in your soul? Does your body tell you something’s off? Your mind driving you crazy? Hurting too much? Maybe something’s RIGHT about this! It may lead to uncovering what you long for, or bring you towards it! Let’s unwrap the gift together! As your ally in healing and growth, my job is to apply my sound professional training while maintaining an attitude of acceptance and respect towards your experience and uniqueness.

I work “holistically”: Your physical/mental/emotional/spiritual/sexual/relational dimensions… ALL of you is welcome! I provide sound support and facilitate healing from this perspective. I integrate Hakomi Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, mindful, non-violent experiential method (www.HakomiInstitute.com)

Born in Spain, and California resident for 15 years, I am bilingual-bicultural. In working with diverse clients, I also draw from my cross-cultural work and travel in Europe, Asia and America.
