Each person’s unique perception shapes the way they experience and interact with the world. Often, life brings about challenges that impact our ability to experience ourselves, others, and our surroundings fully, making us feel fragmented or disconnected. Blanca views her role as helping others regain a sense of wholeness by providing clients with a space free of judgment to practice and gain self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance.
“I have a passion to help those who are in need to process emotional and psychological trauma. I incorporate a body, mind, and spirit approach to help others recognize their capacity to reconnect to themselves and to their loved ones. I believe that healing emerges through connecting with others and a combination of mindfulness, here-and-now experiences, and movement.”
