I completed by post-doctoral training and firs years in practice at an OCD specialty clinic working with individuals (children to older adults) whom also presented with comorbid conditions.

I was born in Bogota, Colombia and Spanish is my first language. Throughout my education and training while living in South Florida, I had the opportunity to work with multicultural populations, providing services in both English and Spanish Languages. I have also worked with the LGBT population as well as with individuals from various religious backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities.I understand the importance of exploring my patient’s culture when working with them, and having a better understanding of the building blocks of what makes them who they are.
