General Info

About me

Since childhood I have had a lot of affinity with children, so when I started my Psychology career, I knew that my area of work would be childhood-adolescence.

During my clinical practice I worked as a resident in different hospitals of the Costa Rican Social Security, where I was able to acquire extensive experience in the management of different pathologies.

To date I have more than 10 years of experience in the care of children and adolescents with different pathologies.

I have worked in the Psychiatry and Psychology Service of the National Children's Hospital both in the external consultation area and in the hospitalization area.
