I am a bilingual Clinical Psychologist based in Santiago, Chile. I have practice Psychotherapy with adult individuals, families and couples in Native English. At this moment, I am only practicing Adult Individual Therapy.
While studying Psychology, I was able to understand and validate my own story. I wrote a new ending, a narrative that empowered me and did not leave me a victim of my circumstances.
Throughout my career, I have helped people examine their own stories in many different contexts. As a Consultant on Family Issues for the Chilean Government, I redesigned programs that helped families experience their situations in a different way. Through my work with the Psychiatry Department at Duke University Medical Center, our team helped patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease enhance their strengths, changing the way that they could deal with their difficulties, seeing themselves in a different light. As a School Psychologist, I helped the Visually Impaired and their families find a narrative that gave them purpose and tools to deal with their circumstances.
For 19 years, I have been helping people re-write a story that brings them more peace.
We cannot change the past. We do get to choose what we tell ourselves about it and how we view it.
By accepting our experiences and who we are, we can rewrite our stories to match our highest state of being, opening the door for happiness.
Therapy gives us the opportunity to do this.
I would love to meet you. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
