Edurne is a bilingual (English and Spanish) professional with over 20 years of combined experience in behavioral health, business, and linguistics fields. She is a licensed psychologist in Uruguay, with clinical, pedagogical/academic, and over 7 years of corporate experience. In the US, she holds an MBA and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, she is pre-licensed as an Associate Professional Counselor (#APC005541), and she is a National Certified Counselor (#745346), and a Certified Translator (#491738).

In Georgia, she has over 13 years of experience in health care as perinatal educator, childbirth educator, parenting instructor and medical interpreter and translator. Her unique mix of expertise areas lead to her involvement in delivering presentations nationally and internationally (face-to-face and over the internet); as well as leading a highly-specialized team of translators, and developing a curriculum for training interpreters to work with behavioral health practitioners in various settings.

As a multicultural psychotherapist (under supervision), she specializes in relational, intimacy and sexuality issues faced by couples and individuals in consultation, coaching, or psychotherapy with the general aim of helping regulate the capacity to love and be loved with freedom, balance work and life with aspirations in context, and/or prepare for later stages of life. She bases her approach on understanding the main attachment styles of the person, couple, or family, the role that technology plays in their lives, and the prevalent coping skills for dealing with life transitions (childbirth, losses, immigration, marriage/divorce/separation, behavioral issues, traumatic events, medical diagnosis, perinatal grief).

She trusts in science, research, creativity, and the human capacity to adapt, heal, and transcend to increase self-reflection and digital literacy. She believes change is possible if we integrate the relational contexts of individuals, couples, and families with psychoeducation, community involvement, and “learnable” moments.
