A few words about me
I decided to study psychology out of a genuine desire to be of help to those around me, which I believe, was reinforced by my upbringing. I was born and raised in Venezuela, where I studied my Bachelor's in psychology and gained experience in providing psychotherapeutic support to clients from various backgrounds, and also facilitating psychoeducational workshops for groups at risk of increased violence.
While doing so, I had the opportunity to witness firsthand how attending a psychotherapeutic space can positively impact people’s lives, making burdens less heavy and more easily managed, even during the darkest times.
I came to The Netherlands a couple of years ago to complete a Master's in Clinical Psychology at Utrecht University. Throughout it, I conducted research on migration-related grief and mental health, and developed a particular interest in working with individuals experiencing challenges associated with living away from their homes, as well as grief or trauma-related complaints. As I love to keep on learning, I am constantly attending courses, and reading about grief and trauma, especially from a psychoanalytic perspective.
What drives me in life is to work alongside clients who are looking for support and wish to find and give meaning to their experiences to gain well-being.
