Welcome! I'm so happy you're here.
I'm lilia, physician and psychotherapist.
I work with people who wish to cultivate holistic health and wellbeing from an integrative mind-body approach, mindfulness and compassion based programs, and Health at Every Size® and Body Trust® practice.
My training and experience
I am a physician (MD) and licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), with postgraduate training in medical family therapy and body psychotherapy and 15+ years clinical experience helping people with struggles with food and eating, depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, chronic pain and illness, and experiences of dis-embodiment.
I am an eating disorders specialist and clinical supervisor; mindfulness, compassion and mindful eating instructor; certified therapeutic and restorative yoga teacher; death doula; bereavement counselor; Certified Body Trust® Provider; and Certified Healthy Boundaries for Kind People Coach and Facilitator.
I am known for pioneering mindful eating and weight inclusive care in the Spanish speaking world, as well as for bringing together radical care paradigms in the field of mind-body medicine. I am the founder and director of Mindful Eating Mexico® and served as Vice President of The Center for Mindful Eating.
My practice is at the intersection of different healing modalities, centering your lived experience and your body as a source of knowing, with a depth and scope very few providers can offer you.
I am deeply and unwaveringly committed to ethical behavior and, above all, doing no harm, which is why I actively advocate for a weight inclusive paradigm and a weight neutral approach in clinical practice.
I am intimately familiar with bodies and minds and our healing processes, and how we relate to, nourish and take care of ourselves and our bodies in ways that bring us closer to wholeness, radical presence, embodied wellbeing and joy.
I am Mexican. I have lived in Mexico City for most of my life, and I've had the privilege of traveling extensively and collaborating with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. My heritage is a mosaic of different cultures, and I am fully bilingual (English and Spanish). I'm happy to provide services in either language, both in person and online.
If you are currently outside of Mexican territory, licensing regulations in your country may preclude me from offering medical care and/or psychotherapy to you. I can, however, offer you coaching and mentoring services, as well as mindfulness and compassion instruction, through which you are still able to benefit from my clinical background and experience.
