I came to the US after completing a masters in clinical psychology in Venezuela. I 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. I joined BGSP in hopes of finding a different language for understanding my 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. BGSP became a very compelling family to belong to, and a place to grow in.
As I have progressed in my clinical work and in my personal journey, I have developed 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.
