Country Day School - Paula Mora

Guidance Counselor

I joined CDS in February 2019, as the High School Guidance Counselor, after working in AIS also as a guidance counselor for the last seven years and with 12 years of experience as psychologist and teacher in private schools in Costa Rica.

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree (2007) and a Licensure (2009) Degree in Psychology from the University of Costa Rica and a Master’s Degree in Education for Peace and Human Rights from UNA (2017). 

I was inspired to work in education since 2003, after my university practices in hospitals, PANI, public schools and companies, where I found I wanted to work with children. I am also in private practice as a children and teen therapist. 

I love dogs, music, running and healthy food. I try to travel and spend as much time in the outdoors as possible.
