Gabriela Quiñones Torres
Bilingual Psychotherapy and Counseling in Lima
Are you facing difficult life challenges? Do you have questions about who you are and the direction your life is taking? You reckon something is missing and you could feel happier and more complete? Perhaps it is time to take action by seeking psychological support.
Hi, my name is Gabriela and as a clinical psychologist I offer psychotherapy and psychological counselling to help individuals, families, and couples identify and develop the skills needed to resolve their challenges and potentiate their strengths. I work caringly at establishing a therapeutic relationship with you, built on trust and mutual respect, from which you can safely deepen your understanding about yourself, your relationships, your emotional needs, and how to best meet them. Together we explore your unique life situation, including the events, factors, and dynamics that create distress, hurt your relationships, and affect your functioning, and we consider new strategies to bring positive change and harmony into your life. I firmly believe we all have the capacity to solve our problems and heal our wounds given the right conditions. My purpose is to help you connect with your inner self and with your intrinsic healing abilities so that, along with reducing symptoms and feeling better, you can reach the full expression and enjoyment of your being.

My name is Gabriela, psychologist by vocation and trade. I completed my bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology at the University of Puerto Rico and a master’s in clinical psychology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I currently see patients in my private practice in the beautiful city of Miraflores, Lima. I have spent over a decade delivering psychological services -both in English and Spanish- to children, youth, adults, couples, and families presenting with a wide spectrum of psychological needs and levels of functioning and in diverse clinical settings, such as college counseling centers, community mental health clinics, and human service agencies. In addition to my clinical work, I am passionate about teaching. I have enjoyed teaching college courses in psychology and mentoring undergrads in their research thesis in the USA. I have also devoted many years to scientific research in areas such as psychotherapy models, mechanisms of change, depression, intimacy, and adult romantic relationships.
Mg. Gabriela Quiñones Torres
I have formal training in a variety of therapeutic models including interpersonal, family systems, humanistic, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and trauma-focused therapies. Thanks to this diversity of training, research, and field experiences, my therapeutic style is very integrative; one which adapts to the particular characteristics of patients, incorporates current psychological research findings, and places emphasis on the relational, emotional, and cultural aspects of my patients.
I see myself as a facilitator in your process of transformation, a role which requires me to at times provide you with gentle support and at others become firmer in order to challenge you towards your growth. I offer short and long-term treatments based on your unique needs and objectives, which can be very specific, such as resolving an issue at work, or more general, such as supportive therapy for your holistic well-being. I believe in the importance of authenticity and that my clinical work becomes richer when I allow my humor, creativity, and warm personality to shine through. More than just alleviating your distress, my purpose is to help you potentiate your talents, abilities, and consciousness so you can live a more balanced and fuller life.
If you would like to learn more about my services and ways in which I can help you, feel free to contact me by phone or email.
Every treatment begins with a free, 15-minute consultation phone call in which we’ll decide if I am the right person to work with you and which type of service would be best to help reach your goals.
I look forward to meeting you!
