Home / About Me

I was born in Mexico and grew up in the United States, when I was 20 years old I packed my suitcases and headed to Spain to study Medicine... It was then when I got confronted with life really fast; I quickly learned that not everything that seemed good on paper was that fabulous in reality… I found it difficult adapting to a whole new culture, continent, society and language. I was not happy, but I did not want to disappoint my family so I stuck it out. Finally, when I realized how miserable I was, I decided to stop my medical studies, move to another country, and chose for my happiness and my well-being over a career.

I ventured out to find ‘home’ and after living in various cities in Europe, Amsterdam became my home. I felt free in the city and I could be myself. However, the stress of the fifth country that I was living in, another new culture, new language, new study, some toxic relationships from the past and severe family circumstances kept accumulating until one day I woke up and I could not move my arms any more… This was the result of a burnout and one of the many symptoms was that it physically manifested in my arms.

Stress had won from me... I was defeated, devastated, and out of my reserves. Pain became my only companion and living ‘day-by-day’ and functioning according to how intense the pain was, became my new standard and life.

After many years of infinite amounts of doctors’ appointments, hoping that they could give me a diagnosis, the results showed that I was ‘healthy’ however,  the pain was 24/7 and excruciating. For a decade I lived in extreme, agonizing chronic pain. I had a burnout that manifested in my arms... In hindsight, me getting a burnout makes sense; you see I used to be very focused on my career, my future and what others thought about me. Yet somehow, I was completely oblivious to the triggers that caused me stress, how I talked to myself, my thoughts were all over the place and I could not really focus, nor was I multi-tasking. I did not have the tools to deal with my daily stress nor emotions. I simply did not have a Work-Life Balance. Also, I did not want to feel any negative emotions, like sadness, loneliness, guilt, etc., and I saw crying as a sign of weakness. I thought that if I would cry I would be weak,  so I would keep all my emotions inside. Coffee and any drinks with caffeine were my favorite and I drank them all day long. I ignored my body when it told me to take a rest and instead, I would drink a double espresso and go for 15km runs, sometimes even longer, instead of resting. I was literally running away from my emotions and used sports as my emotional escape and coping mechanism.

I remember being in Geneva, at the United Nations Headquarters for a week’s Congress on Human Rights. I was in pain, grumpy and overwhelmed by the long days and sleepless nights because the pain kept me awake. I was standing in the main conference room when suddenly I had an “Aha” moment, or more like a “Oh F**k me!!!” moment. There I was, standing up for human rights of people all over the world, individuals whom I had never met, yet I could not even take care of myself. Something just did not make sense! I was so accustomed to always helping, giving and taking care of everyone else but me. It was at that moment when I realized I needed to take action! & change my life!!!

I struggled with chronic pain and a burnout for almost a decade because I did not know how to deal with my everyday stress until I discovered the practical and effective tools that I now teach my clients. The pain disappeared like magic and I got my life back on track again.
