“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their mind cannot change anything” George Bernard Shaw

Licia Brooks

I’m a California-native therapist who believes in a pragmatic and straightforward approach to change. Clinical psychologist and trained psychoanalyst with 20 year’s experience at Grupo Médico Lomas. Couples therapy, counseling for anxiety, depression, grieving, panic attacks, addictions and relationship problems.

Life has Changed

Navigating modern life while integrating the past in a way that fosters depth, meaning and connection is the unique challenge of our times. Too often we feel pushed into a future without purpose and fulfillment that can leave us with a sense of profound dissatisfaction or feelings of sadness, anxiety and anger as well as relationship problems.

In my work I use a range of therapeutic tools to handle issues that arise from past experiences and focus on how they affect our present in order to find concrete solutions to current demands and needs. As a result we experience a rise of “emotional energy” that can be used in the present for real change in daily life, relationships, family  and workplace.

I Can Help You

I’ve helped expat and local individuals and families, intercultural couples, LBGTQ clients and many others out of my office at the Grupo Médico Lomas right next to Polanco.

This is about you. Every day is an opportunity for a more fulfilled sense of self. Reach out and let’s work together to make it happen.

Your life experience is a privilege, make the best out of it.

Twenty years helping expat, local and intercultural couples, LBGT couples and many others out of my office at Grupo Médico Lomas next to Polanco.

I have a Clinical Psychology degree from the Universidad de Las Americas and a six-year Masters Degree in Psychoanalysis from the Sociedad Psicoanalítica de México. In later years I expanded into other psychological perspectives by going into training with Dr. Terence Real and Dr. Esther Perrel in New York City. Their insights and techniques on couples therapy and relational life have become an integral part of my practice. After years of listening to many individual clients talk about their issues with relationships, the decision to expand my therapeutic range with this training was an obvious next step.

Further training at the Gottman Institute through their Bringing Baby Home certification has added significant depth to my work with couples.

Over the last few years I’ve addressed different groups, such as the Women’s Weekend CDMX, on subjects ranging from the impact babies have on marriage to the challenges of balancing work and family for modern women.

In my twenty years of experience I’ve helped expat and local families and individuals, intercultural couples, LBGTQ individuals and families and many others out of my office at Grupo Médico Lomas.

I'm also a contributor to HuffPost Mexico, where I write about psychology, executive performance and popular culture.


I live in Polanco with my family and summer with my kids in my hometown of Bishop, California.

I’ve seen US and Canada-based patients via Facetime/Skype for over a decade. I treat my Facetime sessions the same way I do face-to-face sessions because we’ve achieved the same kind of breakthroughs in both kinds of settings. The seamlessness of connectivity via smart-phones and computers at this point allow for great voice and image quality, further enhancing the value of  the remote experience.

I process payments via PayPal and charge the standard rates of my Mexico City practice.

I charge hourly fees for 45 minute sessions and higher fees for 90 minute couples therapy with both partners. I have a reduced rate based on need and income, and reserve a number of slots for sliding scale patients. I accept remote patients via Facetime-Skype at the standard rates of my Mexico City practice.
