Acerca de Mí...
Soy Licenciado en Psicología Clínica en San Jose State University (California) en 1996 y graduado en Máster de Terapia Familiar en Santa Clara University en 2001.  He continuado mi formación y especialización en Coaching Personal, Tratamiento de Adicciones, Intervención en Situaciones de Crisis, Psicología Neonatal y Cuidados del Recién Nacido.
 

Durante mi formación en California, me especialicé en Enfermedades de Salud Mental (Depresión, Bipolaridad, Ansiedad, Personalidad, etc.), llevé a cabo investigación en el área de multiculturalidad y participé activamente fomentando un sistema de salud abierto a los inmigrantes y las minorías. Reconociendo la importancia de la familia en la cultura Latina, profundicé en Teorías Sistémicas y trabajé con varias organizaciones formando familias en temas de comunicación, organización y educación.


Al cambiar de milenio regresé a Madrid, España con el objetivo de aportarles a mis hijos del calor familiar y la misma base cultural. Profesionalmente me especialicé en el tratamiento de adicciones y drogodependencias, trabajando como psicólogo clínico y como supervisor de varios programas (Hospitalarios e Intensivos). Sin lugar a dudas, mis clientes me enseñaron de los grandes logros que somos capaces de conseguir. He trabajado con personas que inicialmente presentaban graves adicciones al alcohol, cannabis, heroína, tranquilizantes, cocaína y otros estimulantes y he sido testigo de recuperaciones extraordinarias.


En el año 2007 establecí por primera vez mi Práctica Privada. Quizá una de las experiencias que más me ha cambiado fue el desarrollar un Programa de Atención Familiar en la Unidad de Neonatología (UCIN) del Hospital 12 de Octubre de Madrid, dónde se apoyaba a padres de recién nacidos y prematuros (24 semanas) o con graves enfermedades. Este programa pionero en España, asistió a muchas familias durante el arduo y doloroso proceso de estancia en una UCIN.


En el año 2012 volví a emigrar con mi familia a los Estados Unidos con el objetivo de seguir expandiendo mi aprendizaje ,y aportarles a mis hijos la oportunidad de vivir en el extranjero, y aprender otro idioma y otra cultura. Durante los ultimos 6 años he tenido la oportunidad de colaborar en muchos proyectos, desde trabajar en Florida International University (FIU), guiando a estudiantes de universidad, a ayudar de forma humanitaria a inmigrantes en proceso de deportación o solicitando peticiones de asilo. También he adquirido formación y experiencia en el Metodo Gottman de Terapia de Pareja, y como Coach Profesional.


Recientemente hemos regresado de nuevo a Madrid después de 6 años en los EEUU, así que empezamos otra etapa de nuevas aventuras y reinvenciones. Aunque continuo colaborando con proyectos en Miami, y asistiendo clientes por Videoconferencia que me lo solicitan, mi objetivo es continuar desarrollando mi práctica privada como psicólogo y coach, y continuar aportando mi grano de arena allá donde se necesite.

  1. I had the pleasure to work with Guillermo at Gardner Family Care Corporation. Guillermo is a skilled mental health clinician with many years of experience working with high risk families. He provided excellent cultural competent mental health services to underserved individuals and their families. Guillermo brought to his work his own personal experience as an immigrant to the United States. His bilingual and bicultural skills were also invaluable. Guillermo is very professional, dedicated, accountable, a team player and well liked by others. Guillermo demonstrated professionalism and strong leadership skills. During the time I worked with Guillermo, he was highly respected by his peers and the administrators.

  2. Guillermo was a valued Supervisor. He was always available to assist patients with their mental health needs, and went out of his way to research any conditions that would help him treat our patient population. What amazed me the most was how some patients at first resisted the idea of psychotherapy, but then we're very sad to see him leave! He is missed.

  3. I had the fortune to meet Guillermo at Care Resource (CR) in 2013 and we worked closely together as the two managers in charge of Prevention programs involving HIV testing, outreach, and behavioral interventions. Guillermo is a very approachable, realistic, goal-driven, persistent, and ethical leader. His communication style is direct, efficient, non-judgmental, and people (clients as well as coworkers) felt comfortable going to him for guidance which quickly made him a very popular and busy man within his initial couple of months at CR. Guillermo is a team player who always volunteers his help even when not requested. He is patient, intelligent, with a natural ability to adapt to changing environments and shifting priorities. I fully recommend him not only as an accomplished professional in the psychosocial field, but also as a man with great morals and a big heart!
