“I have always been curious about human behavior, even as a kid”, says Fernando Estrella, a treating psychologist at Sanoviv, with a characteristic warm smile. He continues, “I wanted to support others in making positive changes in their lives, as I was interested in changing in my own life. I love what I do and what I’ve accomplished in my work. Being a psychotherapist has given me the opportunity to support others with empathy and kindness.”

He received his Psychology Degree from the “Universidad Autónoma de Baja California” and has a Masters degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy from the INTEGRO School of Psychotherapy in Guadalajara, Jalisco. He also has a Diplomate in Family Counseling. He has received training in Mind Body Medicine in therapeutic interventions such as Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology and Focusing.

“Throughout my life I have had the feeling that I was going to be part of something big. I really didn’t know what that was until I started working at Sanoviv. From that moment on, being a part of this extraordinary holistic approach, I knew what that was. It automatically changed my life.”

Fernando is in charge of leading several educational and relaxation classes on multiple topics that support holistic healing. He feels strongly that with the right information, a person can have an important impact on their future decisions and, thus, on their health. “Everyday is a constant learning process of sharing and receiving between the staff and guests. I am convinced that each and every person who works here has a wonderful purpose in what they do, and this has an impact on the lives of our guests. That is one of the things I enjoy most.”
