About Tania


I am deeply rooted in spiritual guidance, chaplaincy, and the Unitarian Universalist ministry, with a unique journey spanning from Jalisco, Mexico to the bustling streets of Tijuana, and now to the  shores of the San Diego area where I've called home for over a quarter-century. I proudly identify as a 'fronteriza'—a dweller of the borderlands, shaped by the dynamic interplay of two rich cultures and the liminal spaces they create. This multifaceted experience serves as the cornerstone of my approach to spiritual accompaniment.

My soul finds solace in the vast expanse of the sea, the resilience of plants, and the profound spiritual practice of discovering beauty everywhere.​

At the heart of my practice lie rituals and community, where I create inclusive spaces for individuals of all ages, genders, and identities—welcoming each soul with open arms, regardless of social status, belief system, or physical and mental capacities.

My mission is simple yet profound: to walk alongside individuals through life's defining moments, offering not just a listening ear and a comforting presence, but also a sacred space to delve into the profound questions that define our human experience.

For those yearning to deepen their spiritual journey, I provide nurturing environments where we explore the myriad ways the Divine, God, or the Mystery of life manifests within their lives. Together, we unveil the mysteries and bask in the transcendent beauty that surrounds us.

The herb, or medicinal plant, route.


Herbs, in home remedies, have been part of my life since I can remember. They were my mother's first resort when we got sick: peppermint tea for stomach pain, chamomile tea to wash our eyes, etc.
Passionflower and valerian root, lavender and others came to me on my own healing path. I believe in the power of plants, in their ability to heal us or give us a little comfort. Little by little I have been learning more about them and cultivating a close relationship with them as well.
Lavender, rosemary, rue, white sage, oregano, mint, among others, live in my garden.
For me, the route of herbs and medicinal plants in general has been a calling. This path is part of my route. I am a perpetual learner of the wisdom they share with me.
