Maybe you find yourself in a moment where you’re not sure what’s the next step in your life and that brings frustrations and worries and so you wish to find inner balance and effective solutions. Perhaps you are curious about your own personal growth and you’d like to go deeper into that. Whatever your motivation is, psychotherapy is very useful and luckily now a days there are plenty of options and proven methods that can adapt to each personality.
Many describe psychotherapy as a process of knowing yourself, where both you and the psychologist will work together to discover your internal and external resources that will facilitate your wellbeing. It is also a great opportunity to observe and overcome blockages or unresolved problems that keep you from experiencing wellbeing and to clarify your thoughts and feelings. A psychologist can help you to find your own answers, coming from your authentic self, the ones that serve you best within the right context where you can make new and healthier changes.
My aim is to go along with you while offering support and proven tools, in addition to the time and space for you to focus on what really matters to you.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, self-criticism, integration to a new country, existential crisis, grief, trauma and management of emotions.
What I offer
- Individual therapy for adults in English and Spanish
- The time and space for you to talk about what you think and feel and I will listen without any judgements.
- Tools that best adapt to your needs.
- Online sessions
- Support along your process via phone calls. It is possible to have a 10 minute call if you feel the need for some extra support to manage anxiety and difficult emotions.
How I work
When you first contact me, I’ll happily give you more detailed information and answer your questions. We can also have a short conversation where you can tell me a little about yourself, without any further commitments. From there, if you wish we can set up our first session.
During the first session my main goal will be to listen carefully to your needs and goals without any judgement. I might suggest some useful tools to start up and answer any doubts you might have regarding psychotherapy.
In my work I strive to give a complete service, therefore I integrate psychotherapy (which includes many methods), mindfulness and body awareness.
Here’s an overview of each area:
Psychotherapy: overcoming personal challenges – improving relationships – developing emotional intelligence – solving specific problems. Treatment of anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and more.
Mindfulness: learn how to stop overthinking and how to lower self-criticism by being non-judgmental with yourself. Experience inner peace and space in your mind.
Body awareness: learn how to identify emotions in your body and listen to your needs.
I’m a psychologist from Venezuela and I live in Copenhagen with my husband. My job inspires me and I strive to keep learning effective and research-based methods. I also love to have a healthy and positive lifestyle.
Some of my biggest interest in life are flamenco – which I teach – nature, spirituality and social justice.
My qualifications: I have a degree in psychology and a Masters degree in Integrative Humanistic Psychotherapy. I also studied psychodrama and have done courses about trauma treatment. I am a member of SIP (Selskab for Interkulturel Psykologi) [Intercultural Psychology Association] and I strive to keep studying and developing new methods.
