Celina Jacques, LMFT
Celina is a creative soul, a wounded healer, an artist, psychotherapist, and art therapist. Her journey began from feeling frightened and small, searching for safety and wholeness; to the luminous process of finding mentors, healers, teachers, and ultimately, herself. This journey included reconnecting with spirituality, studying meditation, neuroscience, psychology, and the ancient healing practice of curanderismo. Celina is here for you as a witness and a guide. Her vision is to passionately engage creativity and ritual as a healing tool for the heart, mind, and soul. She is at your services to help fortify your inner strength and cultivate hope & joy. Celina holds individual therapy sessions with adults and families as well as community art therapy workshops. In addition to local services, she also facilitates an annual retreat in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and is hoping to add more soon.
