About The Author
I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, and have lived most of my adult life in the American Midwest and the Pacific Northwest. I received a degree of Licenciada in Clinical Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires, and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Missouri. After a career in private practice, I now see clients remotely in the United States. Currently I am enjoying writing poetry in Portland, Oregon.
I wrote this book in real time after the death of my lifelong husband. If I were to write it today, I would have forgotten the strange moments of grief I experienced. My psychotherapy sessions were also recorded in real time, thus preserving them from the distortions and forgetting that occur with the passing of time.
My hope is that the narrative in this book can offer empathic resonance and new insights, and can open new paths to individuals grieving or facing the oncoming death of loved ones. Therapy can give you that other set of eyes, that other set of ears, that other human contact—the most natural way to find ourselves and our sense of wholeness.
