My Story

I am a spiritually driven explorer of the multi-dimensional self, through my strong spirit I inspire others to make changes happen.

I graduated in 2013 with a Master's Degree in Integral Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. It is based on integral theory, an intuitively transformational and comprehensive system that has supported me in my development and challenged me to expand my perspective and to discover the creative evolutionary force embedded in each moment. 

During my masters I got certified as a coach by Integral Coaching Canada. Later on I received training and got certified as a Craniosacral massage therapist with Bastyr University in Seattle. 

I have more than 10 years of experience as an integral coach working with individuals and couples. I include healing energy practices and shamanism as part of my services.

Since my teenage years I experienced different shamanic indigenous rituals from Mexico including the use of plant medicine like peyote and psilocybin mushrooms. Shamanism has been an important part of my development, of coming into my true self. I studied core shamanism at the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and received the transmission of the Munay-Ki Rites. 

Since 2013, after a life changing experience with ibogaine, I started working with ibogaine clinics in Mexico for addiction treatment as a coach/therapist and psychedelic guide. Some of the ibogaine clinics I've worked at are: Pangea, Iboga Root, Tabula Rasa, Iboga Quest and The Mission Within. Eventually expanding my practice to offer therapeutic treatments and psycho-spiritual ceremonies with ibogaine and psilocybin.

I am from Mexico and a proud mother of a beautiful wise daughter, being a mother is my most profound experience of unconditional love.

I currently reside in Tepoztlán, Mexico, surrounded by the stunning beauty of the mountains, the powerful energy of the vortes and enjoying the wonderful spring-like weather.

My Approach

My approach in guiding and supporting clients through their transformation and changes is focused on their individual needs, dreams, challenges and unique process. 

We work together allowing transformation to happen organically, in multiple ways, through various practices of inquiry, observation, introspection and right action.

I'm passionate about supporting clients through the challenges of change, to integrate practices for compassionate living and explore the depth of being. I use a dynamic systems approach to change, to bring about change and to pursue change with resilience.

I have extensive experience supporting individuals of diverse ages and backgrounds navigating life transitions, navigating the anxiety, fear, and the stress of uncertainty. I've worked with special operations veterans and their families, as a coach and guide to work through trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, and stress.

My integral practice includes the Enneagram model, stages of development, shadow work, inner child, meditation, mindfulness, plant medicines, shamanic rituals and energy healing.
