Déborah Alvarez Garrido

I was born in Havana, Cuba and moved to Aruba at the age of 9. As a teenager I developed a great interest in human behavior and decided to come to the Netherlands to study psychology. After graduating from de University of Groningen I worked in different fields of mental healthcare. During the past five years of my career I have specialized in treating clients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorders en other trauma related issues like Depression, Anxiety and Personality Disorders.

My goal as a therapist is to create a save therapeutic environment in which the client can learn to recognize his/her own strengths and where he/she can learn how to break through disruptive behavioral patterns. It is my pleasure to offer guidance and support throughout the challenging journey of self-discovery and personal development that we call therapy.
