I have practiced adult psychiatry since 1990 and have offered my services exclusively through telemedicine since 2011. ​ Telemedicine allows establishing a healthy therapeutic relationship and provides a safe and relaxed environment from your natural space. I have a holistic vision of psychiatry and I am convinced that the best results to achieve emotional balance are obtained when a comprehensive treatment is provided that works with the mind, body and spirit. I have been trained in traditional medicine but I use other alternative and functional treatment models.
