«On ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.» -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I am the first Panamanian in my French family. This cultural duality has allowed me to adapt to the differences that the world offers us and honor them as well. I discovered an interest in psychology in my last years of school and since then, I have not stopped learning from it.

I think all the experiences that we live and the people we encounter on our path influences who we are and who we can be. There lies the possibility of always being able to change and improve. One experience that has moved me the most: Becoming a mother. It pushed me to look inside, to learn about the theory of attachment and understand the connection between two beings and the power of co-regulation.

I enjoy creativity: in cooking, drawing, music and movies. The place I enjoy the most: You’ll find it in the first three letters of my name. A word that pushes me forward: Resilience.

Nearly 7 years into Holistic Mind Steps, I still believe in the same principles that led me to join this clinic. We seek to accompany others to achieve their well being through the support of a multidisciplinary team and a integral approach promoting self-knowledge, self-realization and self-esteem, so that each can become their best version. I strongly believe in the impact that an individual can have in its community, and become an agent of change for our society.

I offer therapy, workshops and comprehensive wellness consulting to individuals, organizations and schools in Spanish, English and French.
