TAKE THE REINS NOW!

Reclaim your Confidence and Make Life Abroad Yours

 

Online Counseling and Mentoring for International Women

How would you like to walk the streets of your new town with a smile on your face, instead of a cramp in your stomach...

To embrace the culture with innocence and curiosity, rather than settling to the feelings of isolation and loneliness...

To reinvent your existing relationships, so that they fill you up with positivity and laughter instead of self-doubt and regret...

To do what matters TO YOU, overcoming anxiety and managing your emotions, so that you can take the reins of your expat life?

You are in the right place!

 

I’m here to support you and show you how to identify and use your inner resources that will help you build-up your confidence, establish meaningful relationships and make the best decisions for your life. I’ll be by your side until you have the tools and resources to be happy anywhere in the world.

Hi! I’m Gabriela, a licensed psychologist with 20 years of experience, and an expat.​

I moved abroad more than a decade ago because of love. Although I knew there would be some challenges, nobody warned me about the feelings of insecurity, shame, loneliness and stagnation I experienced.

Or that my partner would have to babysit me when I went to the doctor!

Three countries and two new languages later (I speak Spanish, English and German), I decided to offer my support to women going through similar challenges, helping them build-up and regain their confidence, find their purpose, shine with their unique light and live their lives abroad on their own terms.

I’ve worked with over 300 expats from all over the world, and now – it’s your turn!

In whichever stage of your international life you’re in. Whether:

🔸 You’re getting ready for the big move, or

🔸 You’re already living abroad but NOT enjoying it, or

🔸 You’re coming back home but you’re afraid or struggle to reconnect with your friends and family.

 

I CAN HELP YOU, AND HERE’S HOW:

I found Gabriela via a Google search and I am SO glad that I did. Not only does she really “get” expat struggles, but she also has many concrete solutions and recommendations to offer that I have found so helpful in every aspect of my life. She has helped me feel more confident in my decisions, more accepting of my own emotions, and more empowered to live the life that is right for me, and I would recommend her to anyone living abroad.

Sessions with Gabriela were a true revelation from day one. I had big aha moments, made lots of progress and also a few steps backwards. Knowing that she was always “by my side” and I could text her anytime, gave me strength and made me feel safe at all times.  With the tools I learned, I feel very equipped to continue on my own. I am deeply grateful for Gabriela’s guidance and can highly recommend working with her.

Our work together has changed me in may ways I cannot begin to explain. The tools she shared helped me to change my perspective on rage and guilt and has lead me to be more gentle and merciful with myself. To hold myself and my feelings accountable. They all have something to say. My anxiety levels are very much controlled and acknowledged now. ‘Put a Gabriela in your life’ that’s all what I would say.

I can confidently say I now enjoy a level of mental freedom I had not had in a long time. Gabriela is very patient and kind, and she has, from day one, always allowed for our appointments to be a safe space where I can be myself, cry and laugh when needed. She has also given me some great tools to help me handle anxious thinking. I highly and happily recommend her services to any and all!

I’m a new person, and I’m not exaggerating.  I contacted Gabriela and she helped me collect the pieces and start to build my new powerful, confident, and resourceful me. Every session, every audio, every email, all of it helped me to be where I am now. By accepting the whole me (especially my negative emotions, now I am a big fan of all of them!) now I’m finally (after 5 years!!!!) enjoying my expat life.
