Profile
“I provide a healthy and creative environment where all my clients can grow, relax, auto-reflex, think deeply, and make the best decision for their life, for themselves, for their loved ones, for their partners in a difficult relationship, for their children, and for their family as a whole while positively impacting the world permanently.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Initially, I was slated to become an MD after obtaining my doctorate in medicine from the Autonoma University of Santo Domingo. However, I had great interest in mental health, so much so that I had realized the importance and significance of such matters affecting the world we live in. I wanted to help those who were in mental crisis become better individuals, specifically working with the issues of couples and families around the world
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe that listening is an art and a science. Speaking with trust to a professional in a private and confidential space is still the best medicine we have. We call it "the talking cure" because it is a transformative experience. I provide a healthy and creative environment where all my clients can grow, relax, auto-reflex, think deeply, and make the best decision for their life, for themselves, for their loved ones, for their partners in a difficult relationship, for their children, and for their family as a whole while positively impacting the world permanently.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
My personal mission is to be a committed and creative man in all aspects of my life as an individual, whether in a family or in organizations, and to create legal, honest, responsible, and full partnerships with integrity. I work with all genders and aim to help my clients achieve effective leadership and form their talents through art, education, metapoetry, culture, holistic medicine, and psychoanalysis.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
The current topic of research that most interests me is using running as a form of therapy. I have conducted research on how running can help increase both mindfulness and wellness. As a result, I encourage my clients to embrace a healthy lifestyle, not only mentally but also physically so that they may enjoy the most out of life.
