 “What is success?Success is believing in all you can be,In all that you dream and you dareTaking time to help others find their dreams as well,Being ready to give and to shareSuccess is enjoying the pathways you’ve chosen,And feeling so glad to be you,Helping others to feel self-fulfillment,and joy, and real pride in whatever they do.Success is discovering new ways to reach higherAnd reach out to those all aroundFor only through caringAnd helping and givingCan life’s true successesBe found” (Amanda Bradley)
 This is a quote that has guided me through the years. For me, helping my clients re-gain their self-esteem and thrive is the most satisfying experience. Life is not always easy. Families are notperfect. Babies don’t come with instructions. Through emphatic listening andsome psychoeducation together we will find alternatives.  Despite all difficulties loving and caringwill always get you through.                                               Over 20 years in the mental health field Ihave gained a vast experience treating problems such as:  Child development issues (feeding problems;toiletry training; sleep disturbances); school phobia; gender identity issues;divorce; blended families; separation anxiety and attachment disturbances;discipline and anger management; depression; grief; abuse and trauma.                                                   Ihave worked and volunteered at very different settings: Agencies; Hospitals;Schools; Correctional institutions, etc. always advocating for childrensuffering from any type of abuse. Since I was trained abroad I did myinternship and final thesis at the Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Children’sPsychiatric Hospital in Mexico City, I received an award on my thesis because Iwas a pioneer on the subject. I graduated and continued my formation as a Childand Youth Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. I started my private practice alwaysreserving space for children victims of abuse. My studies have been assessed asequivalent by University of Toronto, I am a Registered Psychotherapist and amember in good standing with OACCPP.Recently I have worked helping adultclients recovering from MVA, and conducting CBT groups for women victims ofDomestic Violence.
