Areas of Expertise
I am a clinician at heart, very early on in life, I knew I wanted to dedicate myself to being a reader of human desire as the life force.
I studied psychology at the same time as psychoanalysis and nurtured my practice with studies in trauma, therapeutic accompaniment and musicology.
I dedicated several years of my career to working as a crisis intervention psychologist in various settings, with different populations, making me sensitive to cultural differences, mental health divergences and subjective specificities.
I was the founder and director of a clinical institute called Lazo y Voz which specialized in working with severe mental impairment. Through therapeutic accompaniment and therapy, we strengthen their reintegration into the social fabric after a crisis.
While deepening my knowledge from a western perspective, I started experimenting with plant medicines. Combined with my analytical process, I found the blending of both worlds to be prolific and clarifying of my own human experience, which in turn gave me more elements to work with others. I´ve worked with traditional healers (curanderos) from Colombia, Perú, and México.
In 2015, I travelled to Peru to diet and share my own expertise with the therapists in Takiwasi. Through this experience, my love for ikaros led me to pursue academic research as part of a healing modality available from ancient wisdom, integrating this into my work today. I've worked from the Shipibo perspective to understand the elements that are key to the transmission and acquisition of healing properties through sound.
- Initial Consultation (30 mins) - $30 (this non-refundable deposit will be credited into your first session with Mijal)
- Integration / Preparation Session (60-mins) - $140
Apart from the offerings already stated, I am also available for:
- Preparation and integration of psychedelic work
- Group and 1:1 Clinical supervision for clinicians, facilitators, healers, integration psychotherapists.
- Tailored programs, workshops, courses of various topics related to clinical psychology, psychedelic integration, trauma, clinical interventions in different contexts.
- Podcasts, radio, lectures.
I work from a perspective where we work by addressing causes to unroot pain, misunderstandings, assumptions and patterns that crystallise and produce rigidity of being.
I work with floating attention and layering listening as a process of creative activation of understanding in full acceptance and support of the width of the human experience in combination with sacred plant wisdom. Dreams are welcome as powerful tools.
My approach amongst many other facets reveals the relational nature of things and their context. It is with others and through others that we learn to listen to ourselves in new and different ways. It is through recognising repetitive elements that we get to hear what is still to be done. This facilitates moving through the knots that have been created in an automatic mode along life.
In honor of the delicate wisdom of tradition and the straight power of western technique, I blend them in a dancing continuity.
Background: Clinical Psychologist, Psychodynamic approach.
Modalities: Crisis intervention, Therapeutic accompaniment.
