Dr. Ricardo Fainsilber | Psychotherapist | Chapultepec, Mexico | 11000


I have been a mental health professional for the last 10 years. My integral approach to well-being stems from my distinct background and profound training. I am a US trained doctor of psychology and member of various international professional organizations. My practice is focused on providing assistance to individual adults seeking a trustworthy professional who can help them with intimate aspects of their life.

My business background informs my practice in that I take a practical approach to help find the best strategy to effectively address the current pressing issues, while keeping in mind the long-term goals. I have a psychodynamic training and I integrate systemic thinking with depth psychology.

My work is also supported by my experience in physical disciplines. While I have always enjoyed practicing several sports, of particular interest in my clinical practice are my over 20 years of experience in martial arts. I hold a black belt in Shaolin Fa Men Chuan Kung Fu and a black belt in 8 Step Praying Mantis Kung Fu. I have deeply studied their intertwining of mental and physical health as well as their different elements, such as Tai Chi, Chi Kung, meditation and nutrition.

Besides my clinical practice, I have been an educator teaching at Universidad Anahauac and Universidad Iberoamericana. I have also presented at many international conferences and have been a speaker for several professional organizations in the US, Europe and Latin America.
