I believe therapy can be rough and fun and I see the huge benefit of us getting more in touch with ourselves. I can help you with that.

I utilize art in many modalities as a way to help themes to emerge, to promote the subjective side of the clients that often is put aside by our rationalization. Language is not just verbal and sometimes trying to add words to our experiences is hard and may not be so accurate as we perceive. Other times, art can be an instrument of relaxation, stress relief, and relationship building.
There is so much to understand about an issue or an event than the mere description we are sometimes forced to see. Most of us tend to feel guilty and believe that everything wrong is our responsibility. Feminist theory helps me to see the micro and macro perspective of the client, their intra-personal values, their family and community, and their multiple identities in the world. It is clear that some groups in our society have more challenges than others and this matters to therapy.
My relationship with Gestalt-therapy comes from early as 2007. I am specialized in this theory and have certifications from different institutes. Gestalt is a way to see the client and their experiences in the present and help them to notice how they live with themselves in the here and now. I offer the client the possibility to expand their awareness about themselves and the world. That information is key to improve their ability to make changes if that is what they want to do.
