Who am I?

I am an Uruguayan psychologist and researcher living in Barcelona with my husband and my daughter.

What do I do?

I work at the Institute Mar of Medical Research, one of the largest public hospitals in Barcelona. I manage research projects aiming to find innovative treatment approaches for severe mental disorders, including major depressive disorder and suicide.

I am also a mindfulness teacher, trainer, and supervisor. In 2018 I founded MBCT Uruguay, intending to disseminate MBCT in Uruguay and other Latin American countries.

Since 2019, I have been actively involved with the OMF in developing and implementing MBCT teacher training in Spanish. I am committed to supporting the OMF in expanding and disseminating the positive outcomes of mindfulness-based approaches, specially in those Spanish-speaking countries in which the access to evidence-based interventions is yet limited.
