Paulina Castillo-Eisenbeis


Deeply curious about the human condition, Paulina has studied history, philosophy, and the neuroscience of interpersonal relationships. She has cultivated a mindfulness practice that is over a decade long. Paulina obtained her B.A. from Georgetown University, graduated from a 5-year program at the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science, and obtained a master’s in Depth Psychotherapy at Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Born in Spain to a multicultural family, Paulina has lived and worked in several countries. Before deciding to become a therapist, she had a career in finance. Prior to that, she worked on a desertification/reforestation project funded by the European Union. She brings to her therapeutic container life experience with changing career paths, as well as with multiculturalism, marriage, divorce, parenting, and blended families. With heartfelt attention, Paulina invites her clients to draw from her experience and training to explore their inner worlds and outer relationships.

Approach & Values

At the heart of her work, Paulina collaborates with you in tending to your emotional life, helping you build resilience and cultivate sustainable happiness. She practices psychotherapy from a perspective informed by Depth Psychology, Buddhism, Recovery, and Neuropsychology.

Paulina works with individuals, couples, parents, co-parents, people seeking to move into healthy relationships, individuals seeking to affect change, and people overwhelmed by maladaptive patterns in their lives. With a profound belief in the capacity for people to transform themselves, she creates a safe and inspiring space to heal and grow.
