Mr Rodrigo Latorre

Clinical Psychologist

Briefly about my clinical psychology practice

Welcome, just a little about me, I practice Clinical Psychology using evidence-based therapeutic approaches and much of my work is from a psychodynamic perspective, with a welcoming and respectful approach. I have nearly 20 years of experience in private practice supporting people from different backgrounds and ages including children, adolescents, adults, couples and families, although I now see only individual adults or teenagers in session.
