Begoña García is a Costa Rican clinical psychologist who graduated with honors in Psychoanalytic Psychology from the Central American University of Social Sciences. Her passion for helping people find their best version has led her to work with children and adults from different cultures and backgrounds.
Begoña offers her services as a psychotherapist at her private office in Barrio Escalante, as well as at the Bellelli Educational Center. In addition, Begoña also offers her services for Adentro, developing and facilitating workshops, training sessions, and retreats focused on mental health and well-being, where she shares her knowledge of psychology, psychoanalysis, and the practice of Conscious Breathing and its benefits.
Begoña's intense love for life and the diversity that is humanity has led her to travel the world, allowing her to experience the reality of many cultures and socioeconomic realities. She has lived and worked in different parts of the world, from Israel, where she volunteered in a self-sufficient community (Kibbutz) for 1 year, to Tamarindo, Guanacaste, where she managed a backpacker hotel for 5 years. Recently, she lived for 6 years in New York, where she was able to work with the interdisciplinary team of Children's Therapy Network, facilitating processes of emotional, social, and school development of children within the Autism Spectrum Disorder.
For Begoña, her multicultural experience has been fundamental in her personal and professional life, and she firmly believes in the value and beauty of difference and individuality. That's why she is committed to being constantly trained, acquiring new knowledge and experiences that allow her to help her patients achieve their full potential and achieve the change they desire.
In addition to her career in clinical psychology, Begoña García has recently expanded her skills and knowledge by becoming a Breathwork Coach at The Whole Health Project (Bali), where she continues to train as a Certified Meditation Teacher. This has allowed her to acquire new tools and skills to help her patients on their path to mental health and physical and emotional well-being.
She is currently enrolled in the MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) program at the Mindful Leader Institute in Washington DC, and the Mindfulness for Pain Management Course taught by The Center for Mindfulness at UMass Memorial Health, demonstrating her continuous commitment to training and constant improvement of her skills as a professional.
