Eugenia Tarzibachi, AMFT (CA) #134381. APCC (CA) # 12142.
I am a bilingual mental health clinician (English/Spanish) with over 17 years of experience as a psychotherapist in Argentina, and I am pursuing my licensure as a psychotherapist in CA, where I live. My specialties are trauma, peak performance, women's health (PMS/PMDD, infertility, pregnancy, postpartum), acculturation, and life transitions. I also have quite a heart for working with caregivers and babies trying to improve their connection. People describe me as warm, empathic, genuine, and even humorous from time to time. I tailor my treatments for each client in order to meet them where they are at. I strongly believe that clients don’t have to adapt to my tools, but I need to adapt the tools to each client. I earned a Doctorate in Social Sciences and a bachelor's in Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires. I hold an MA in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco and a MA in Education from the University of San Andrés. I have studied in Argentina, Spain, and the US, and worked internationally. I am an author in Spanish and in English as well. I wrote Women's Things. Menstruation, Gender, and Power (Sudamericana / Penguin Random House, 2017) was awarded with the Ángeles Durán Prize of the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) for innovation and advancement of feminist theory. In 2022 I will be publishing my new book Menstrual Bodies and Gender. The transnational business around menstruation from Latin America by Springer/Palgrave MacMillan. I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research and a member of the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists (CAMFT). I am also an adjunct professor at the University of San Francisco in the Masters' Program in Counseling Psychology.
