Javiera is a psychologist from Chile with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. She has worked in a private clinical practice in Chile, at the National Family Center, and also as a kindergarten counselor and psychologist.
Specializing in depression, anxiety, self-esteem & identity, grief & loss, and stress, Javiera works with both adults and adolescents. Javiera also does child therapy, including psychodiagnostic work, play therapy, verbal therapy, parental counselling, helping children with school refusal, and managing emotions, conflicts, and struggles. She also helps clients of all ages facing cultural adjustments and transitional difficulties.
Javiera’s primary way of thinking about her clients is from a psychodynamic approach (psychoanalytically oriented), which focuses on the unconscious processes that influence one’s way of thinking and behaving. For each case, she adapts and implements various psychological techniques that best suit her client’s needs.
Javiera repatriated to Chile in 2020 but is still available to work with Spanish speaking clients via phone or video.
