María Mendoza, M.A.
Psychology and art are my favorite blend.
As a Jungian-oriented teacher and facilitator, I have dedicated myself since 2014 to the research, design, and implementation of expressive and self-knowledge methodologies, especially through the technique of collage. Since then, the transformative results of these methodologies have continued to amaze and inspire me. I enjoy the collaborative work with colleagues and friends around the world, creating powerful spaces for self-discovery and healing through art making. I am a woman finding herself through the creative expression, and a guide of navigators of the depths of the soul.
