As a consultant, I work with organizations in the process of vision and mission development as well as to find solutions to the problems they face.
As a trainer I provide direct experiences that allows participants to incorporate in their life tools they can later use with their own clients. I present theories that will enhance the understanding of the creative and therapeutic process, and I constantly work on nurturing creativity and capacity for problem solving.
As a psychotherapist my goal is to empower my clients in their healing journey. Through the use of Mindfulness, and Art-based Counseling, and Coaching, I encourage them to discover and resolve the root causes of their emotional and physical issues in shorter periods of time, and teach them techniques by which they can create the personal growth and healing the desire. Dr. Avila coaches and consults individuals and organizations within a creative model to discover their strengths and develop their potential. She specializes in Leadership, Organizational Development, Youth Programs, Grief Workshops and Trauma as a PhD, AT & Life Skills Coach
