I graduated in Clinical Psychology and post-graduated in Psychoanalysis.

In my initial contact with psychoanalysis, I realized it was the theoretical approach that most respected the person, and it made perfect sense to me. From there, as I kept studying, my interest just grew stronger.

Experiencing the intimacy of the life stories of the people with whom I work is deeply rewarding, as it allows me not only to contribute to society by helping others, but mainly to learn from my patients.

From the start of my professional career, as a psychologist in a penitentiary, I have had the chance and challenge of working with children, teenagers, adults and the elderly, which has allowed me to gain a rather eclectic experience.

For the pleasure I get from meeting unique people, from distinct cultures, I started psychotherapy online, complementing my face-to-face sessions.
