I received my medical degree from Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala School of Medicine. After graduation I moved to Costa Rica for training and specialization in Psychiatry at the Universidad de Costa Rica. After I completed my residency training, I began to practice Psychiatry in 1979 in Guatemala City, Guatemala. I was Head of the National Department of Mental Health and Director of the former Neuropsychiatric Hospital of Guatemala. I have taught Psychiatry at the National School of Nursing and Clinical Psychology at the Department of Psychology, School of Humanities, Universidad Francisco Marroquín. I am a member Guatemalan Psychiatric Association and I have focused on private practice exclusively since 1993.
My main area of attention is Adult Psychiatry with an eclectic approach, including psychopharmacologic treatment and psychotherapy with a psychodynamic emphasis. I value the opportunity as a Psychiatrist to get to know each of my patients as individuals and work with them to address their unique concerns.
