When I was a teenager, I used to be called utopian, idealist, naïve. The reason? I thought that love could change people's hearts and the world. It was a naïve idea and, if you are reading this, you know things are not quite that simple. But intuitively I already knew the power of human presence for healing and transformation. It took me years to find a career path that really fitted me. Becoming a therapist was the biggest gift of my life. I started to do what I've always dreamt to do: helping people transform their lives so that they can help others and all together we can change the world.
You might think I sound even more naïve than when I was a teenager. Well, I embrace my naiveté so. I believe it is possible, and I see it happening all the time in my therapy room. People tend to feel happier and discover ways in which they would like to help others, starting by helping themselves.

Originally from Spain, I spent most of my adult life living abroad.
I am constantly training, as I love learning, especially about the human condition.
I am warm and trustworthy, calm, considerate and respectful, and a bit odd.
I am a tai chi and qigong practitioner and these practices keep me grounded and relaxed.
I love dancing and I can swing, tango and dance barefoot.
I love reading, so I mix reading psychotherapy books with the latest Spanish novels and poetry.
I love foreign languages, and I work in English, Spanish and French.
