April 24, 2024


Also available on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcast, and in all major podcast apps

Hey Dreamers!

To honor the mental health awareness month, in this episode, I interviewed Gabriela Encina, a licensed psychologist who specializes in helping expat women discover themselves and their happiness in a new country.

Gabriela was born and raised in Chile, and after working in Chile for 10 years, she moved to Austria and lived there for 8 years. In 2017, she moved to Spain and she’s based in Valencia, Spain.

Gabriela brings 20+ years of experience as a psychologist she has helped more than 300 expat women from all around the world. If you’re an expat woman, an immigrant, and a newcomer in a new country, I am certain you’ll resonate with many things that we discussed in this episode. Please enjoy!

We talked about some of the most common challenges that we expat women face when we’re living in a new country as a newcomer such as:

  • Identity crisis
  • Language barrier and culture shock
  • Economical, emotional, and social dependency on our partner
  • Loneliness
