I obtained my first degree at Universidad de Belgrano and begun my clinical training as an intern (4 years) and as Instructor of interns (1 year) for the Psychiatric Unit at “Hospital General de Agudos Dr. Teodoro Alvarez”. Later on, I worked as a member of the Mental Health team at OSDE, a private medical service, and as a University Professor in the subject of “Public and Mental Health” at Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
As part of my background I’ve completed a Postgraduate University Course at Universidad Favaloro, Buenos Aires, and a Master in Neuropsychology at the School of Medicine of the University Institute at Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires. My research thesis is in approach systems, motivation, and behavioral activation in depression. I’ve participated in research training courses at Yale University (New Heaven), and UCL (London). v
The axes of my practice are continuous training, interdisciplinary work, and to improve people’s quality of life in the field of mental health. c
My practice is based on cognitive behavioral treatments, experimental psychology and neuropsychology applied to mental health problems. I work on evidence based strategies to revert avoidance behaviors, procrastination, worrying and ruminative thinking, that contribute to the presence and the vulnerability for recurrence of the psychopathology.
