Clinical psychologist

Expert in

Early care of neurodevelopmental disorders

You will find me at


English, Spanish and Catalan

Since 2004, I have been working as a clinical psychologist specialising in early childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, carrying out evaluation, diagnosis and treatment tasks. In addition, I have specialist training in the field of ADHD and autism spectrum disorders. I worked as an associate lecturer on the master's in child and youth psychology during the 2017/2018 academic year at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. Clinical practice, teaching and research are therefore three areas of interest in which I would like to develop further professionally.
