We need our Arts to teach us how to breathe.

Ray Bradbury

I always dreamed a lot, and very vividly. Since I started to make dolls by hand, my dreams have toned-down, mostly because my unconscious has powerful external figures in which to show itself. A handmade theatre of its own, if you will. Those childhood dreams were a starting point for a search for meaning that it is still ongoing to this day. I felt finally at home when I found about analytical psychology. Encouraged by my uncle, Dr. Mario Berta, who also introduced me to the world of art and expressive therapies, I started reading Jung and recording my dreams at the age of 18. The fairy tale books and a collection of vintage books called “Treasure of Youth” -full of mythological tales-, from my childhod, have been providing me with their share of the archetypal world to feel at ease with the analytical theory and its practice.

When I learned that Jung had gone through a crisis by building his own tower, kept a written and painted journal on his fermenting encounter with himself, and played with stones on a shore while trying to stay sane, I was absolutely certain: that was a theory worth of studying, a touching and down-to-earth one. My postgraduate degree and my master’s education -as well as my own didactic analysis-  cemented my intention to work with others from a perspective that I believe it is as integrative as well as deeply humanizing. I currently work with adults; I have specialized in crisis intervention and long term treatment of psychotic spectrum disorders, mood disorders and anxiety disorders, from a gender and feminist approach.
