Gabriela Pérez-Gil del Valle | MA
Current Student, Doctor of Psychoanalysis Program (Graduate of the master's in counseling program.*)
In Mexico City where I am from, I had been trained as a Humanistic Gestalt and Existential therapist and had been working for quite a while as a psychologist. I began to realize that there was something missing in my work with patients and decided to deepen my studies by enrolling at BGSP, in the Master's of Psychoanalytic Counseling program.
This program has taught me useful skills such as how to allow patients to be more themselves and how to meet them where they are at in a more effect way. As a result, my work has been greatly enriched and I am able to work with a broader population.
I am now studying in the clinical doctoral program at BGSP and it is an amazing experience. When I graduate, I expect to apply what I have learned in my private practice and perhaps, when I go back to Mexico I will have the opportunity to share what I have learned with others. An extension of BGSP in Mexico? Why not!
*This degree is now entitled Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling.
