I (she/her) am a disabled multiracial and multicultural person of the Global Majority born and raised in Panama, in Abya Yala, Central America. I currently live in Amsterdam with my partner and my heart dog, who inspired me to pursue my lifelong dream of dog training. I began my psychology studies in Panama before moving to Amsterdam to pursue a Research Master’s degree and a Ph.D. in Social Psychology. As a trauma-informed, racial equity, and anti-oppression educator, I center my work on providing research consultancy and educating and training people on how to incorporate social justice and anti-oppressive practices into their daily lives and workplaces. I also offer compassionate individual coaching.
Co-creating a compassionate world with equity and justice for all beings
About Me and my Work
My approach is trauma-informed and culturally sensitive, recognizing the unique experiences and needs of each individual and community.
My approach is trauma-informed and culturally sensitive, recognizing each individual’s unique experiences and needs and prioritizing their autonomy and agency in the healing process. In order to meet the needs and achieve the goals of each client, I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities. I believe that healing is possible for everyone, and I am committed to supporting my clients on their journey towards greater well-being and fulfillment.
Education and Training
I design one-of-a-kind webinars, courses, and interactive workshops to encourage people to think about, discuss, and act on issues of justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, anti-oppression, and trauma. With a background in social psychology and research and extensive experience working with a wide range of communities, I take an approach based on empathy, vulnerability, active listening, and cultural humility to facilitate learning in which all participants feel seen, heard, and valued. I strive to create an open and brave space where individuals can engage in meaningful conversations and take actionable steps toward creating a more equitable and just world.
