Welcome!

My name is Daniela and I’m a psychology-trained therapist from Mexico.

Originally from México city, I  landed in Barcelona after two years in Madrid. We moved for my husband’s work.

Having experienced, and worked through, the challenges of expatriation, I now want to help people who are going through similar challenges in their journey in a foreign culture.

English and Spanish

Adults, ChildrenAdolescents 

MA Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, BSc Psychology

Let me share an exercise showing how to manage a difficult situation

So, what does working with me feel like?

I will help you make friends with your feelings. 

Come as you are and together we can explore your emotions and how to manage them so you can feel more at ease. 

I will help you learn new skills.

I offer you tools I have in my professional toolbox. It is a daily job getting to know yourself better and I hope to help you harness what you believe to be ‘weaknesses’ in your favour. 

I offer a respectful, professional and warm relationship.

I have a deep respect for my clients. It is courageous, no matter how old you are, to seek support when you are having problems. I feel privileged to accompany you in this moment of your life and will offer you a safe space.

I have a practical approach.

I draw from my knowledge of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy),  and REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy) to help you learn how to manage your mind, emotions, and situations. Yes! There will be homework (useful homework).

Who do I help?

Adult Individuals

Depression, anxiety, self-esteem, stress management, sexual abuse, adoption, academic difficulties, dating, improving child parent relationship and emotional management.

Children 5+

Depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, adoption, social insecurities, academic difficulties, parental divorce, improving the child parent relationship and managing emotions.

Adolescents

Depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, adoption, social insecurities, academic difficulties, parental divorce, improving the child parent relationship and managing emotions.

I have always been a people person and a helper. 

When I was a child, I struggled with my self-worth in school until I studied psychology. Finally, I was good at something because I was doing what I love. I understood it was my calling in life.

Giving people a safe space and having a skill set that can help people help themselves navigate their challenges in life is a privilege. I love my work!

How did I realise my calling in life was psychology?

details about me

Connection gives me energy.  I love to be surrounded by my friends, family and partner as much as possible.

Nature is my medicine. When I feel anxious or stressed I like meditating and being surrounded by nature.

I believe everything happens for a reason. Instead of asking “Why is this happening to me?”  I prefer to ask: “For what reason is this happening to me?”

what clients
say about working with me

I spent a lot of money on therapists that didn’t really acknowledge my needs. They agreed on the first session but then continued with their own plan and I quit after a couple of months. Daniela is the first therapist that actually gives me what I need which is ways to cope with my depression when it comes. We don’t waste time on irrelevant things. She also has a great way to make me notice things I haven’t before, and to make me come up with answers and solutions I didn’t know I had in me.

It felt really good to talk to Daniela, I already got some things out of just first session and felt a good connection. All was good.

The session was great and didn’t feel too intense for the first one. Looking forward to more with Daniela.

I shared a lot and Daniela made it very clear the goals we were going to work towards together. Looking forward to future sessions.

I tried another therapist before Daniela and that did not work out, she did not understand what I wanted to work on etc.. But Daniela understood me and heard me. Looking forward to our sessions in the future.

The first session was nice and very comfortable. I think my following sessions will help me to release some of the anxiety and unnecessary worry that I carry with me

Daniela was friendly and kind and put us at ease. She was open and easy to talk to. I think she will be a great fit for our son.

She was really nice because she never complained about my weird identity choices or my obsessions or anything !! I think she helped a lot :3

Everything was great, efficient and professional. Thank you

Daniela is a fantastic therapist. She really helped me with an issue, I couldn't resolve myself. In each session, we broke it down, and with my homework, I was able to overcome the issue successfully in a healthy way. I truly appreciated Daniela´s therapy, as she always let me bring my own topics and I observed on more than one occasion, what a brilliant therapist she is, because she truly understood the root issue, and asked deep questions which helped me to address what was really the underlying condition/ misbelief. It is difficult to find a good therapist and to establish trust, and with Daniela I really felt comfortable and I could tell her everything. I felt safe in the sessions. She really understood the broader picture. I am really happy with her service.

I felt heard and comfortable during the session. Daniela's positive energy also helped me feel more at ease during the session. She noticed all the smaller details I said.

The experience has been very different from other times I've been to therapy. Previously, my therapists have needed to do a diagnosis and focus on working on specific goals for specific issues. And I understand how that can be an effective treatment. But this time I needed to take my mess of thoughts and examine many different things and just process what I've been going through. It has been refreshing to find a therapist that meets me where I am that day and has a toolbox of many skills they can rely on to help me with what I need in the moment.

Daniela is amazing! She has really created a safe space for me and I really appreciate that she has received me with kindness and love and that’s all I really needed.

It's been helping and I already see changes in me. Very happy with it.

We had the initial consultation with Daniela for our daughter. She explained her way of working, which seems clear and aligns with what we're looking for.

It surpassed all expectations!! Thank you
