I’m Andrea 👋
Thanks for being here and wanting to know more about what I do.
“I believe the focus of Mental Health should also be on human potential, not only on the deficit.”
Okay, let’s do this…
I was born in Santiago, Chile under the regime of Augusto Pinochet. Today it is just an interesting fact to share when I meet people, but it does inform who you are.
Moved to Los Angeles, California at 11 years old with my parents and my brother.
And I built my life in this place, under this beautiful sun that is widely envied by everyone that doesn’t live here 😎.
I met the hubbs, had my beautiful kids, bought a tiny piece of California and a Golden Retriever. Became an entrepreneur early in life and had my first success by the age of 26.
It was a great experience, but then…
I discovered Coaching and the rest is history. I have dedicated the last fifteen years to learning everything about Mental Health, personal transformation, the human mind, and a mix of other related practices like emotional intelligence, diversity, sustainability, and spirituality.
Along the way…
- I earned my Master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP)
- I became a Certified Professional Coach (PPC)
- Got a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a concentration in Organizational Leadership
- Oh… And I was on the Board of Directors for the ICF Los Angeles Chapter
All this made a regular on Univision’s morning show.
And also gave me the opportunity to work with great corporate clients like Globant, Thrive Scholars, Claremont University, and the Boich Cellar to develop Wellness Programs for their workforces.
Yes, I believe in happy employees!
In 2022, I founded Bloom, a Mental Health Coaching service for both individuals and businesses.
This is my private practice, I offer Mental Health Coaching and we create content, both open on my blog or the YouTube channel, and premium through my course “Intentional Happiness,” to deliver our best content and tips.
