With an American father and a Mexican mother, I have had the opportunity to experience the two cultures throughout my life.

I obtained my degree as a Psychologist from the Autonomous University in Mexico (UNAM) and an M.A. in Psychoanalytic Theory from the Center for Psychoanalytic Study and Research in Mexico City.

I am an ongoing consultant for the organization Sin Fronteras where I provide psychotherapy for refugees and immigrants dealing with depression, trauma and P.T.S.D.  I offer clinical support, training and seminars for personnel and individuals dealing with culture shock, burn out and vicarious trauma for different institutions such as the Benjamin Franklin Library in Mexico City as well as for Sin Fronteras and other Human Rights organizations.

I am registered with the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City as a qualified psychologist and psychotherapist.
