I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #14385) with a Medical Degree from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology (MCP) from the Adler University.
I believe that in order to help others with self-awareness, it is imperative that a therapist has gone through the same process. My reason for this theory is that is is difficult to apply to others what the therapist has not experienced themselves. Being truthful to oneself is difficult but rewarding work. In my case, I have participated in years of Freudian and lacanian psychoanalytical therapy. The process has provided me with a more positive and mature understanding of myself, human nature, empathy for others and the world around me.
My past experience as a physician has helped me understand the importance of mental health within the medical field. It is crucial that we give it the same care as our physical health for our overall wellbeing. This line of work also taught me how to connect with people from that role and create relations based on empathy.
I enjoy helping people, working with others one-on-one, with couples, family, or in group settings, and making a difference in people’s lives.
My approach to counselling is based on my many years of training in psychodynamic and attachment theory-focused, where I have found the clearest ethical approach to listening to and intervening with human suffering.
I also offer solution focused therapy, CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy), and DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy) for more urgent, practical issues, and ways to cope.
