About Me

I studied clinical psychology and hold a bachelor's degree at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. I was granted a scholarship by the University of Twente to study a master's course in Psychology of Conflict, Risk, and Safety.
I am a Licensed Gestalt psychotherapist and Couple therapist from the Centro Gestáltico del Perú.  
I have been interested in social development to impact the world positively. Therefore, I have focused my career path on three main areas: Gender, Criminology, and Human Mobility.
