How does one reduce unnecessary suffering?
How does one help people to conquer their fears?
How does one help them to change their lives?
These are the questions that motivated me to become a psychologist, and the search for these answers continues to guide my work.
I have been working with patients for over a decade, with more than ten thousand sessions under my belt. My main focus is in individual therapy with teenagers and adults, but I am also trained and work as a couple’s therapist.
I wrote a book called People Do Change a few years ago, in which I try to show in a simple and engaging way, the practice of psychotherapy and how through it people can (and do) change.
I have been in charge of seminars and study groups about clinical psychology and psychoanalysis in addition to being invited to teach at Universities in relation to the psychoanalyitic perspective of different topics.
I believe it is crucial to keep learning in order to help my patients in the most efficient way. Therefore, I regularly attend training seminars and workshops about psychotherapy, both in Chile and abroad.
