I live in Montevideo, Uruguay and I am a psychoanalyst trained in Argentina. I did my masters in Community Health at the University of Liverpool, England and right now I’m a doctoral candidate at the University of Alicante (Spain).
My practice as a psychoanalist is based in Montevideo, but I also use skype and other communication means with patients that are away.
What does the site’s name mean? TRAS BORDES Psicoanálisis, salud colectiva, desarrollo inclusivo roughly translates as “Across the frontier or limits – Psychoanalysis, collective health and inclusive development”. I created it with the intention of making visible (even to me ) the communicating vessels of my practice as a psychoanalis, in the fields of collective health and with people with disabilities.
