About me

When I made the decision to study psychology, it was because I realized that I had many of the skills required to practice clinically.
I consider that since before I knew that I was able to place myself in neutral positions, I have had a fairly broad vision of the conflict in people's lives, considering that we have a range of possibilities to resolve them assertively.
Additionally, listening attentively always seemed to me to be an act of love towards people, because when someone decides to tell you something, the place where they are placing you is a privilege, because nothing more and nothing less than they are exposing their most vulnerable part to you, something that Human beings are very complicated.
I am an extremely warm and empathic person, two characteristics that seem essential to me when exercising this profession.
Therefore, since I graduated, I realized that I am passionate about this job, and even more so when you see the evolution of patients and as session by session they are able to place themselves in places that allow them to face life with less pain.
The other day a patient told me that one day he was seeing his version of a year ago, and he looked so foggy that it was difficult for him to visualize himself in the future, and now after a year of therapy he has managed to reconstruct his pieces, his desires and that he feels happy to be taking on challenges in his life and focusing on all those goals that were previously impossible to achieve. These types of experiences are so rewarding for me that every day I assume my work with great respect, dedication and commitment.
