Since that time she and I have been meeting every other week and, in less than a year, 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!

Work with Gabriela

Hi! I’m Gabriela, online psychologist and expat.

When I decided to move abroad, I knew it would not be easy. Many times it wasn’t. But everything I lived helped me focus my efforts, knowledge and experience on women living abroad, who want to shine with their own light and merits, feel confident and live their lives on their own terms, feeling satisfied and fulfilled.

I offer you my vast work experience as an online psychologist for expat women and the empathy and understanding of life abroad. One of my new clients’ first positive feedback is, “I don’t have to explain expat life to you; that’s a relief!”

I know our work together will be significant in your personal development, self-esteem and happiness abroad.

Why do I want to support you?

I have more than 18 years of experience as a psychologist and more than 3 as an online psychologist for expat women.

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

You don’ have to explain expat life to me, I understand what you’ve been through.

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 reached out to Gabriela after a big crazy relocation and I was feeling really out of my depth, especially when it came to processing change and thinking through my social connections and skills. Gabriela helped me identify a structure of meaning and clarity to process and reach out to others and suggested clear simple steps outside my comfort zone to arrive at my goal of support and stability. I recommend working with Gabriela as her kind, warm, effective manner was exactly what I needed.

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.


French Expat in Japan

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.
