Sergio Rodriguez-Castillo MA, LLM, MFTI*
Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern
I help people to be in relationship.
I am a bilingual (Spanish) and bicultural therapist with more than 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, consultant and coach, helping people, families and organizations to face personal, existential, relational or systemic crises.
I hold an MAs in Integral Psychotherapy and East-West Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). I also hold an LL.M in International Business Law from the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom, a JD from the Autonomous University of Queretaro in Mexico, training in leadership and psycho-spirituality from the Sadhana Institute in India and I am also a certified Spiritual Counselor.
I am not only a psychotherapist, but a trainer of psychotherapists. I teach in the Master's in Integral Counseling Psychology program at CIIS. As an expert on psychotherapy and communication skills, with years of experience working with difficult couples and organization in crisis, I use my experience to help my clients achieve their goals, reconnect with their core, and live the life they want to live.
Prior to becoming a therapist and consultant, I practiced corporate law for 12 years, then branched out into marketing, IT, human resources and public relations; These experiences put me in a unique position to understand the needs of corporations, the demands of professional life and the challenges of human relationships.
Besides my work in private practice, I offer workshops, intensive growth experiences, coaching sessions, and seminars in the SF Bay Area and abroad. Recent events include topics such as psychotherapy and spirituality, different or the same? (talks on gender), diversity, spirituality in the workplace, living by choice and not by chance, stress management, team building, effective communication, rebuilding your relationship, non-ordinary states of consciousness, soul-full leadership, sexuality, grief, trauma conscious companies , among others.
I have the deep conviction that we are much more than what we think we are…that our potential is far greater than what we allow ourselves to experience. I want my clients to get more out of life, to work and love intensely.
The work I do can best be described as integral, meaning that in our work, we will use the most useful and applicable psychotherapy, management and self-development tools available, together with the wisdom and depth of various wisdom traditions. Our work will join evidence-based practices with contemporary, traditional and complementary methods of healing.
In brief, Integral means working in ways that include all dimensions--body, mind, spirit, heart and culture, in the context of nature and society. Complicated? Trust me, once we begin working together, you’ll realize that it comes naturally to who you are.
Are you ready to rediscover who you really are? To become who you were meant to be?
