olores was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she received her degree in Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires. After graduation she completed a fellowship at the Hospital Italiano of Buenos Aires where she began to develop her clinical experience by providing pediatric mental health services. Recognizing her passion is working with pediatric patients, Dolores went on to complete a post-graduate specialization in children and adolescents.
In 2008, Dolores left her home country for the United States and settled in Miami, Florida. Upon arriving in Miami, she went to work for the Institute for Child and Family Health, a private, not-for-profit organization providing educational and preventative care services to the children, adolescents, and the families of Miami-Dade County. Here she completed her Infant Mental Health training.
A few years later Dolores would relocate with her family to Palm Beach County to begin working for Child First, a national, evidence-based, two-generation model that works with vulnerable young children and their families. During her time with Child First, Dolores trained in Child Parent Psychotherapy, or CPP. Utilizing CPP she continues to help families build strong, parent-child relationships that protect and heal the brain from trauma and stress. The goal is a young brain focused on learning rather than survival, helping parents understand their children’s feelings and actions. When working with children, Dolores incorporates play therapy to create a space for young children to use toys, rather than words, to express themselves.
When she is not working, she likes to read, paint and spend time with her family and friends.
