My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that understanding the past can help make sense of present experiences, identify patterns, and transform the future. Luisa helps clients create closer connections to their loved ones to overcome the effects of trauma and emotional distress. It can be overwhelming to face ones deeper emotions. However, deciphering , honoring, and understanding these emotions can be a life changing experience and provide a road map to obtaining emotional wealth.
