I am G. David Jaramillo. I come from a traditional family founded on respect, service, cooperation, and responsibility. Values that I have ensured to maintain in the relationship with my wife and my three children. Since I can remember, I have always been curious to understand our behaviors’ reasons and motives. Studying and practicing clinical psychology has allowed me to acquire that knowledge and apply it with my clients so that they find the appropriate moments for self-reflection and recognize not only the strengths and resources they have but also the purpose of their existence.
In 2014 a tragic event, but at the same time blessed, helped me in this process of adjustment and understanding. Who would have thought that a car accident would make it easier for me to understand that life is just a moment where we all have the power to choose how to live it. Relearning such “basic” functions as walking, speaking, and eating after being in a coma for almost a month helped me reaffirm my service purpose. The emotional, psychological, and physical consequences of the accident have helped me understand that the best way to address problems or conflicts is by recognizing our strengths and resources to explore the best options to resolve them.
