About me

Hi! I'm Carolina - a narrative therapist in training, certified mindfulness counsellor, writer, and mental health researcher.

I grew up in Argentina and Australia, went on to live in Malta, and am now living in Berlin, Germany. Before studying and working in mental and emotional health I worked for over ten years in creative communications, international publishing, and investigative journalism. My interest in people, their stories, their ups, and their downs led me to change my work (and life!) direction.

For the past ten years I have been helping to reduce the presence and influence of diverse problems and causes of sufferings in the lives of my clients. I can help you with:

- Anxiety
- Social Anxiety
- Depression
- Seasonal Depression (SAD)
- Suicidal thoughts & ideation
- Grief & Loss (Relationship breakup or loss of life)
- Addictions
- Attention problems (ADD/ADHD)
- Eating Problems/Bulimia/Anorexia
- Trauma Healing & Recovery
- Abuse Healing & Recovery
- Schizophrenia & Psychosis/Voice Hearing
- Spiritual Crisis
- Stress/Burnout/Overwhelm
- Coping with chronic illness/pain
- Feelings of Failure
- Work stress & unhealthy workplaces
- Insomnia
- Life Transitions (Motherhood, Fatherhood, Change of Career, Retirement, etc.)
- Immigration & Cultural Identity challenges
- Interpersonal Conflict/Family Conflict
- Relational skill building

I strive to offer every person I work with a calm, emotionally safe, and non-judgmental presence. I adapt my ways of working for any neurodivergence, and we can find the best way to work together for you to get the most out of therapy.

You can send me a message through the platform to arrange a free intro call :)

My approach

Depending on the problem you are facing, I use a combination of narrative therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and emotional intelligence and relational skill training. I tailor my approach to your unique situation in order for you to have the best possible outcome for your wellbeing. My work is non diagnostic and non analytical. Any cultural and spiritual practices you have are welcome into the therapy space.

Narrative Therapy:

The stories we tell ourselves about our lives determine how we think, feel, and act - which ultimately determines the direction of our lives. We will work together to discover and understand how your narratives have been formed, and work on building new, more helpful ones. This can provide healing, help you to take new actions and respond differently to the same issues, and move forward in a positive direction.

Mindfulness Counselling & Coaching

Mindfulness includes both mind and body practices involving observing and tuning into the present moment. I help you to observe, identify and regulate thoughts, feelings, and the senses in the body – with kindness, compassion, and without judgment. These practices and explorations help you develop a stronger self awareness, and reduce mental and emotional suffering caused by the mind and body getting stuck in your past, or too much in your future.
