Work with Gabriela

Hi, I’m Gabriela, expat for over 10 years

At first, in Vienna, I had a hard time adapting to my international life; I felt lonely, unmotivated, dependent on my partner, and I had trouble building new relationships… until I decided to seek support and guidance, so I could Identified what was stopping me from being the person I wanted to be: joyfull, confident, motivated.

After working with my psychologist, I finally managed to enjoy my expat life and that’s when I discovered my purpose.
The experience I lived, my studies and career, allow me to help other women who are in that situation, with sessions that combine scientifically proven tools from cognitive-behavioral psychology and coaching strategies.

I know what you are going through, because I experienced it myself. That’s why I know our work together can be significant in your progress and happiness abroad.

Why do I want to support you?

I have more than 15 years of experience as a psychologist.

I understand you perfectly: I’ve been through what you’ve been through.

I’ve worked with over 300 expats from all over the world.

I speak English, Spanish and German. So, if you are like me and sometimes you mix languages, I will totally understand you.

Clients feeling at home, wherever they are!

I’m a new person, and I’m not exaggerating. For me, it is a before and after Gabriela. I contacted her in a desperate state, 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.

The progress I made between our first and 8th session was tremendous. She taught me ways of identifying my feelings and reframing my thoughts. Gabriela’s approach was structured, methodical, and surprisingly practical. Session after session, I started feeling truly enlightened and empowered. We worked on areas of personal and professional life. Gabriela gave me the tools to lay healthy foundations and communication in a relationship. I am immensely grateful.

One word to describe my sessions: “transformative”. I reached out to her because I had been experiencing intense loneliness for two years living as an expat. Since our sessions, I have not felt this horrible loneliness, and the main thing that has changed in my life is me and my attitude. I highly highly recommend Gabriela.
