As part of the Mental Health Team at New Age Psychiatry, I am very pleased to announce 2 new therapeutic packages which I am offering as of October 18, 2021.

Holistic Life Coaching
Born and raised in Miami, Fl
• Adopted into a Cuban/Costa Rican home at the age of 2
• Spent most of my years suffering from depression, getting involved in toxic relationships, struggled with drugs and alcohol, worked meaningless jobs, and, never felt enough
• I had my spiritual awakening at 35 and it changed the course of my life forever
• I decided to quit my job of 8 years, sold most of my belongings, and set out to travel. It allowed me to face my fears, discover my strengths, and connect with myself and nature in a way I’ve never done before. I developed my confidence, let go of false beliefs, and embraced my solitude.
• My purpose in life is to share my gift with others to help us THRIVE in this life
I will be providing a co-creative environment for my clients so that we can develop a life plan structured around their main focused points (Inner confidence, relationships, work, purpose, family, finances, personal goals, etc.). A generous amount of one on one talk time at each session will be given. I will incorporate daily practices to develop discipline and structure. Time in nature will be a daily requirement. Herbal remedies and natural medicine will be recommended based on my evaluation. Chinese Medicine and energy work will be recommended for deep inner healing. Integrating journaling, literature, books, and affirmations will be part of our daily routines. Certain yogic practices, exercises, and stretches will be suggested depending on my learners needs.
