About me

Bookings and more info at www.santiagocelorio.com Hi! I'm a Mexican/German therapist with a Lic. in Clinical Psychology. I am licensed by the Health Department of Lichtenberg (Berlin) to give psychotherapy (Heilpraktikergesetz). I'm also a member of the VFP Association (Membership 135276). I offer sessions in English, Spanish and German for individuals and couples; online or in my practice in Mitte. I work with a diverse population: LGBTQI+, neurodiversity, non-conventional relationships, parents, spouses, migrants/expats.

My approach

I was born and raised in Mexico City. Before moving to Germany, I had already lived in the U.S. and Canada. These experiences gave me a deep insight into the life of a migrant and the struggles (and beauty) of it. Additional to my studies in Psychology, I have two university degrees in Visual Arts (Film). This has given me a special understanding of perception, creativeness and stories. This is why I focus on the inner world of my patients. I like to understand their goals, struggles, highs and lows trough their own experience. My approach is essentially compassionate and non-judgemental.
