Antonia Morgado Peinado

As an established child and youth psychotherapist I work with children, teenagers and young adults from 0-21 years and their parents. In our practice we treat a variety of mental disorders, which we  view as a form of coping. Some of my main areas of focus are the treatment of eating disorders, trauma and depression.
