Since 2005 I have been working as a counsellor in different capacities starting in crisis, community based, and supportive roles; and later moving onto more therapeutic roles in Mental Health with Alberta Health Services. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families of all ages and all backgrounds, and I feel honored and humbled when people invite me to participate and support them during times of their lives that are vulnerable and difficult. I speak Spanish fluently, and would be happy to offer sessions in that language if needed (or preferred).
I am originally from South America and have lived in Calgary on and off since 1987. I have had the privilege of having lived in other countries in Africa, Europe and the Middle East, and experiencing the richness found in people’s cultural diversity.
I have also been blessed to come from a large, close and complex family and to be a part of my own family with three (now adult) children of whom I am extremely proud. Personally and in my work, I am constantly reminded of our humanity and all the things we have in common, as well as how much we need connection with others in our lives. I love people and I love nature in all its forms. I spend my spare time visiting family and friends, travelling and enjoying nature as much as I can.
