About me

I grew up in Colombia and moved to London in 1994, relocating again to live in Jersey in 2018. Graduated as a Systemic and Family Psychotherapist and then as a Systemic teacher, trainer and supervisor in 2000.  I work with individuals, couples and families. My career has been mainly working in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), education and charities. I offer clinical supervision, deliver training, have lectured and provided systemic consultation to mental health teams, educational settings and Social Care. My areas of expertise include self harm and suicide, eating disorders, out of parental control teens, anxiety and depression, helping people in crisis and when not at their best.  I have attended extensive training and worked in teams at the forefront of clinical excellence and innovative practice. I am a keen kayaker, love nature and animals.  

Systemic and Family Psychotherapy is an evidence based treatment that aims to reduce internal and relational conflict and the difficult feelings and emotions that are likely associated with this.  Rather than seeing one person as the problem I think about the more or less useful patterns of interaction and the dynamics that happen between people. 

I aim to create a space for everyone to be listened to. I also aim to minimize blame, guilt and shame. Conversations in therapy include humour and incorporate other aspects of lived experience which bring you a sense of achievement, choices, joy and connection. 

I value diversity in all its forms and have lived a life rich in change, within different cultural and professional contexts.

The therapeutic relationship is important for change to happen and you will know early on if “we click” and If you feel I can be helpful to you and your family. This will be regularly reviewed.
