Hola, you can call me Silvia.
I am a Psychotherapist who enjoys traveling, dancing, nature, art, and being with my son and my dog.
I was born and raised in Mexico. I have been living in Chicago for the past 20+ years and now call it home (yes, I am used to the cold by now).
I am a person who is generally happy, friendly, and respectful of others.
I highly enjoy my profession and live life to the fullest.
Love is my religion.
I like to talk, read, and learn about meditation and spirituality.
I am fascinated by psychology and learning.
It is an art and a science.
I have 12 years of experience as a psychotherapist.
Every year I procure at least 180-200 hours of advanced training in different areas of psychology, psychotherapy, or professional development as required by my IL professional license.
I am fortunate to have been sought to contribute as an expert by Univisión, Telemundo, and La Ley Radio (Spanish TV and Radio) for local and national news.
