"Clinical practice presents itself as a space for mutual and constant learning, where each therapeutic process is unique and challenging. In a society focused on performing different roles, therapy presents itself as a search for authenticity. Intervention based on the objectives and people in front of us is essential for its success. Thus, my training combines clinical psychology with social psychology, where I try to consider all the variables and systems where the person is inserted, paying special attention to diversity and the social markers that distinguish us, especially in social, economic, ethnic contexts. -racial and cultural."
