Work with Gabriela

I noticed shifts starting our first session. I wasn’t prepared to apply some changes, but Gabriela was there, holding my hand and encouraging me to look into my resources and all my life experience. I found a new (unexpected) purpose for me, thanks to our work together. Her knowledge and experience and her smile and kindness create a place of transformation, self-compassion and acceptance.

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. Gabriela gave me the tools to lay healthy foundations and communication in a relationship. I am immensely grateful.

What challenges I will help you conquer:

Diminished self-confidence and self-esteem.

Overwhelm, anxiety, burn out.

Shame, guilt and stagnation.

Disconnection from loved ones by hiding struggles and difficult emotions.

Troubles adjusting to a different culture and the language barrier.

Multicultural relationships conflicts.

Loneliness and lacking of a strong support network.

Not enjoying expat life as "supposed to." (self-imposed demands)

What you can expect when working with me:

Empathy and Understanding

I’ve been through what you’ve been through, so if you’re tired of explaining what you’re feeling right now and not being understood, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll talk from expat to expat, so you’ll feel heard and not judged.


My support is online and customized, so that you can have sessions from anywhere in the world and at a time that suits you. Also, I speak fluently Spanish, English and German, so we can switch if you need to (like I do!).

Support between sessions

For the time we work together, you’ll have 24/7 access to me, to elaborate on your thoughts, feelings, and share your insights. This is as helpful as the hour we spend together. Often, it takes longer than 1 hour to digest your discoveries.

Vast Experience

I have more than 18 years of experience, integrating and providing my knowledge and background in HR,  solution-oriented and focused on the present therapy and coaching strategies. I’ve helped over 300 internationals around the world!

After the sessions we had together, I felt ready to enjoy my repatriate life. Above all, she showed me and made me understand that I had it all in me … just needed to be asked and ask the right questions. The answers were within me!  I can’t stress enough how much I recommend her!

Gabriela has helped me to face difficult situations and to recognize positive aspects of living in another country. She is a very professional person who builds trust from the start. The sessions have helped me focus on my current life and better accept the present I am living. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Expat?

Expat is short for Expatriate. The consensual definition of expatriate is “a person who, temporarily or permanently, resides in a country other than the country in which he or she was born.” I use the term expat to embody all words and concepts that have something to do with moving abroad: migrants, citizens of the world, digital nomads, permanent travellers, etc. The core: courageous people who follow the unknown, far from what they know and are at the beginning, middle or the end from their international adventure.

Is the online counseling you provide for me?

If you are feeling stuck, unsatisfied and like reaching your limit, yes, this is for you.

If you want to improve your life, move forward and learn how to be a fulfillinf and happy life, yes, this is for you.

If you want to understand yourself better and through that also the ones around you, yes, this is for you.

If you want uncomplicated, either short term or long term support by a mental health professional familiarized with expat and nomad life, yes, this is for you.


Can I work with a psychologist who lives in a different geography?

Absolutely. I wouldn’t let geography be the primary factor in finding the right psychologist for you. I welcome clients from anywhere in the world as long as you’re fluent in English, Spanish or German (the languages I am proficient in).
With my clients, I have our sessions over video conference which accommodates time zones and geographical locations.

What makes you unique?

My approach is formed by moments of reinventing my own life, my professional corporate background and my work as a licensed psychologist and certified coach. I work mostly with individuals who are navigating a major move by living in a different city or country. The kind of move that sends your life in a radically different direction, often into the unknown.

My clients appreciate that I offer a safe and secure place, where you can be and say whatever you want. I create that environment for you, as I am positive, honest, and open-minded.

Also, I speak fluently Spanish, English and German, so we can switch if you need to (like I do!).

I have a different question. How can I get in touch?
