GRADUATES OF THE MASTER'S PROGRAM

Sara Hueso

Dr. Hueso came to the US after completing a masters in clinical psychology in Venezuela. She had accepted a job as a psychotherapist in Boston, at a mental health agency and upon arrival experienced intense culture shock. The emphasis on symptom alleviation, behavior and external causes felt overbearing and an impediment to understanding patients intra-psychically. She joined BGSP in hopes of finding a different language for understanding her patients. "I thought I would take one or two courses to balance the pressure of the job, but I found much more than what I was looking for- I found a place that fosters becoming one's true self, and in addition, teaches how to help others do the same." It became an irresistible process, one that she continued despite moving to Florida, where she has developed a private practice.

Dr. Hueso has a special interest in the application of modern analytic theory and technique to the parenting process. "I continue to be amazed by the profound impact parents are able to bring to their families when they apply some of these tools."

Dr. Hueso hopes to continue to grow her practice and to teach, spreading modern analytic thinking to South Florida.
