Manuel Blasini-Méndez

PsyD & Consultant

Meet Manuel Blasini

I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico where I pursued my undergraduate studies in the Universidad Del Sagrado Corazon. I completed a  PsyD in Clinical Psychology at George Fox University.  

Furthermore, I am a speaker, writer, and podcast host of Echando Pa'Lante. A podcast created to decolonize and promote mental health within systems and individuals.

I currently work as an Organizational Development and Effectiveness Manager at B Fernandez y Hermanos in Puerto Rico. Additionally, I plan to open a private practice to continue doing clinical work geared towards helping individuals that struggle with traumatization.

 I have worked as a consultant around topics of diversity and inclusion with non-profits, universities, and community leaders.

On my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, friends, and family, as well as going to the movies, binge-watching Netflix series, and eating new foods. I am also the proud father of a Boston Terrier named Cacique and a Domestic Long Hair cat named Tess.
