I am a Clinical Psychologist and licensed psychotherapist working in Spain—in my offices in Madrid and Boadilla Del Monte, as well as via Skype. I have had an extensive training in mental health and psychotherapy since 1994. I have received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Duquesne University, US, and have finished a Master degree in Health Psychology at Universidad Europea in Spain. My approach is psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, and existential, while I have also been trained in other approaches, e.g., gestalt therapy and sand tray play therapy, which allows me to draw on variety of techniques. I have worked as a clinician and psychotherapist in various venues for more than 20 years and have been specializing in expat and immigration issues, depression and anxiety, grief and loss, life crisis, identity issues, women issues, etc.
Besides my private clinical practice, I have been teaching at a University level since 2002. Currently, I work as an adjunct professor at Saint Louis University, Madrid, and Suffolk University Madrid, where I have been teaching variety of subjects including abnormal psychology and health psychology.
I am a strong believer in continuous (perhaps never-ending) professional education. During the last 6 years, I have been an active member at Centro Psicoanalítico de Madrid and have been attending various seminars and workshops at Colegio de Psicoanálisis de Madrid.
