“Change your breath,
Your thoughts change, and you change your life;
It really is that simple.”
-Silvina Duchini, Modern Breathworker & Life Coach
I will help you to better understand yourself, to realize that you are so not broken, so that you can finally start to feel whole again.
I know, you’ve been told that you are ‘broken’ a million times and actually, you’ve started to believe it. Something is wrong with your brain, the chemicals are imbalanced and you will never be the same unless you take this little pill and go to your therapist regularly. If you don’t do these things you are doomed, so you better take that pill. How well has this been going for you? Have you been able to stay med free? Have you been working with your therapist for years, with little to no progress?
The fact is, that your situations, your past, have led things to be where they are today- you are a physical representation of your past. This is the real ‘root’ of the “problem”. It’s hard to integrate and make sense of all this shit alone- trust me I know, I have been there several times. This is exacerbated if you have a “treatment team” that supports meds and is not providing a safe space for you to unravel your complicated root- this is one of the main reasons I quit working the Mental Health field and became a life coach, I didn’t like it either!
Don’t get me wrong, psychotropic medications are sometimes necessary, so I’m not suggesting you quit taking them. They are, however, meant to be a cushion or booster and not meant to be taken long term unless you have something more pervasive and permanent.
But you my friend, you are so not broken. Let me say that again; you are so NOT broken, you are actually far away from that. You are perfectly wholesome and complete- you just haven’t realized this yet and that’s totally okay. It’s not easy to unravel and understand the ‘broken’ path.
That’s what I’m here for!
You are meant to be and feel totally complete and whole; to be free, in control of you life, your thoughts, yours dreams. You are meant to experience joy and actually freaking get what you’ve been wanting all along!
Come on in, and experience it for yourself.
I was born and raised in Mexico city by South American parents whose ancestors were from Europe. I moved to the US in my preteens- a very crucial and difficult time for anyone to experience a such a big culture shock. I have experienced very stressful and difficult times that come from living in a multi-cultural family and extensive family trauma; this has made me have enormous compassion and empathy for people and the lives they live. I have also experienced very joyous times, almost as in feeling like I’m in a heavenly or fairytale kinda place; I thank breathwork for allowing me to experience this level of joy.
I have specialized training and experience working with trauma, drug/alcohol issues, family discord, stress, and anxiety. My background is in Clinical Social Work and I received a Master's in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania (yes, it’s an Ivy League School, big fucking deal- don’t worry I am not uppity about it in the least!).
My approach is unique as I am one of few coaches out there, to have training as a Licensed Clinical Social Work and Modern Breathwork. To read more about the unique and amazing breathwork technique click here.
I live a happy and balanced life with my husband and son, along with our two (wild, lettuce eating creatures?!) cats and our very energetic Catahoula Leopard dog (for all you Catahoula owners, you get my drift!).
