Hi! I´m Tanya

.

With my M.A. in Counseling Psychology and my experience as a woman & a mother, I became an Empowerment Coach. I help people leave behind unhealthy and unhelpful social patterning & conditioning and tune into their OWN wisdom & truth, to re-connect in with their own deeper (ancestral) truth and draw that back into the world, to create a healthy whole.

.

Through personalized coaching, group programs, online classes, retreats, workshops, & speaking events, I take a stand for people to have the love they deserve, to feel good in their bodies & in their lives, to take up that project they’ve been putting off,  and to have quality time with themselves, their kids…more PRESENCE. They end up knowing themselves creators of their own lives, with their soul purpose, their life, their business, families, and values. 

Often we have these big dreams that can get overshadowed by our roles. Stuff from the past creeps up. We are supposed to have it all together–all the time–and we can end up feeling inadequate, alone, and … lost. We can often feel discouraged when we don’t seem to get anywhere on our to-do list, and we spin our wheels as we can’t seem to please everybody, or ourselves, and we just don’t know where to turn or what else to do anymore. And with what time?

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, I invite you to join my free Facebook community here, where I offer lots of free coaching & teachings, a community of supportive members, and special offers. Book an obligation-free Discovery Call with me if you are ready to invest yourself and commit to the next level, so that we can explore together what would be possible if you did a Coaching Program with me. Go here to book a  Discovery Call.

Personally, I have been living in Freiburg, Southwestern Germany, by the Black Forest, bordering on Switzerland & France for about 4 years now.  I like it because I get to spend a lot of time in Nature, which refreshes & inspires me. I was born in (and love)  Mexico City, and have also lived in Southern & Northern California, New York City, and Santa Fe (New Mexico). I consider myself a global citizen, speak several languages, am a total travel enthusiast! I love reading, and am currently finishing my own forthcoming book. I am also a passionate dancer & performer… I love the arts, yoga, & good, fresh food! I also feel super grateful that I get to do what I do–it’s a lifestyle for me!

Professional Bio:

My Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology with emphasis in Depth Psychology Diploma
from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA.

.

While obtaining my Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis on Depth Psychology,  I performed over 500 direct service hours of a practicum at New Beginnings, a San Diego non-profit, where I counseled adults, children, teenagers, and families, while  under clinical super supervision & rigorous training. Previously, I also volunteered extensively (over 1400+ hours) at an organization called Shakti Rising, supporting women ages 15-30 in recovery from trauma, eating disorders, and addiction.

My M.A. in Counseling Psychology with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology is from Pacifica Graduate Institute, founded by Stephen Aizenstat. We learned clinical skills as well  as taking a holistic approach, viewing the person as a whole being and not just a diagnosis. To learn more about Pacifica…

I am influenced by 3 Main Schools of thought in Psychology: Depth Psychology, Somatic (focus on the body) Psychology, and Feminine Psychology. Then, I also have training & initiations in (see below for details) Coaching, Body-Based Practices (dance, yoga, and more), Mindfulness, Energy Work (certified Reiki & Theta Healing Practitioner), Feminine-Based Spirituality, and Indigenous Wisdom (Mayan Calendar Reader, Sweatlodges, Rituals).

Training:
Dance
I’ve danced since I can remember, or since I was 3 years old. Since then, I studied classical ballet most extensively, as well as modern dance. In high school, I was a member of “The Performing Dance Group” at my school, an audition-only group that performed year-round and even went on tour. I choreographed extensively and won a “Performing Dance Award,” given to one dancer in the school, in my senior year (1997). 
After high school, I turned towards more culturally-diverse forms of dance that allowed for a feminine-body, such as African dance, belly dance, as well as Bharatanatyam (Indian Classical), Bollywood, and Hip-Hop. I also did one year of Dance Teacher Training at Eveoke Dance Theatre in San Diego.

I danced professionally as a fire dancer in Tulum, Mexico, at a spa, and in numerous shows.
