General Info

About me

I started my studies in 2005, at the Universidad Hispanoamericana, with enthusiasm I pursued my degree in a satisfactory way to finish my Degree in 2009, finishing the graduation project (Thesis) with honors.
By vocation I love working with children, so the experience leads me to work in a fluid, easy way with them, being more effective my function as an entity of change, by providing empathetic treatment full of respect for this population.

During the thesis period I had the opportunity to collaborate in different interventions (individual / group) as well as psychodiagnostic evaluations in the Hospicio de Huerfanos de San Jose, in addition to developing a primary care instrument designed as a support tool for caregivers of the minors institutionalized at that time.

Also my private experience starts as a psychologist in Focus on the Family, giving individual consultation (to all population), and also making psychodiagnostic assessments as appropriate.
