How would you describe yourself?
Well, I’d say that I’m finally in a place in my life where I accept who I am and I’m proud of my journey.
I’m a go-getter. I always make quick decisions because I don’t think, it’s really useful to overthink a situation! Sometimes, you just have to do it, to take that leap of faith and see what will happen. I can be seen as a badass, I already got divorced twice, and we quickly got married (2 months after!) but, what can I say, I love Love and I don’t want to waste time, I want everything and experience everything, it’s intense but I’m passionate about Life.I also moved ten years ago to America. Miami was first, then California and then finally New York. I launched my practice with no client! And, slowly but surely I built my practice and I’m very grateful for my clients. I got betrayed, but it’s ok you just go back on tracks and you just believe in yourself.
I have my ups and downs, but I’m also lucky to have a strong support system. It took me some time to ask for help/support and receive but it’s finally part of my life.
So, to sum up: Intuitive. Bold. Passionate.
What is family constellations?
Family Constellations is a powerful therapeutic tool that explores the surprising ways our family stories shape our identities—and how to disentangle ourselves from those narratives, in order to move forward empowered as the authors of our own destinies.

In a system that may overcomplicate healing—often without getting to the root of the problem— I celebrate simplicity. I recognize the core of the human experience is the universal desire to:
What self care or spiritual practices do you do on a daily or regular basis?
On a regular basis, I do meditation and I work out 3 to 4 times a week. I also love at night, laying down on my bed and placing crystals on my body. It helps me to release my day. I also get a massage and Acupuncture once a month. And, whenever I feel down, I will see a therapist or healer. It’s important to receive help.
Do you have any stories of how you have guided people on their journeys?
I have so many! But, it’s pretty confidential! So, I prefer sharing a few testimonials.
