She is passionate about helping high-achivers individuals who are struggling internally with emotional pain brought by sadness, low self-worth, hopelessness, and those who at times feel overwhelmed with anxious thoughts and bodies.

About Me

Ana Maria is originally from Colombia, and has lived in the U.S for over 20 years. She lived in Belgium for a year as an exchange student. She speaks fluent English, Spanish, and French.

Prior to working in private practice, Ana Maria worked with immigrant and refugee children, adults, and families with significant trauma as victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and torture and persecution in their countries of origin.

Working on these settings not only provided her with the opportunity to witness the stories of trauma and resilience of my clients, but also created an interest in supporting professionals whom because of their work on behalf our the most vulnerable communities around the world, tend to suffer from high levels of burnout, secondary trauma, and compassion fatigue.
