It's Complicated

Fernanda Rios


The clinical work is very rewarding. I am used to seeing all sorts of subjective changes, some are small and meaningful, others are real revolutions. For that all that is needed is to come and speak.

Über mich

I am a clinical psychologist trained as a psychoanalyst. I provide analysis both in Portuguese and in English. I am trained as a Lacanian Psychoanalyst and have a post graduation degree in Psychopathology and Public Health. Most of my experience comes from my private clinic which I have since 2008. I’ve worked for many years in São Paulo/Brazil and since a couple of years I am now based in Berlin. I have worked in psychiatric hospitals having dedicated some years to the clinic of mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder). Since 2012 I also provide clinical services for clinical trials as well as in psychedelic science.

Mein Ansatz

I am trained to work in the realm of the speech and believe that the psychoanalytic technique provides the therapist as well as the patient with a safe place to work from throughout the analytical process. I have seen meaningful changes happen, real subjective revolutions or small but wished steps made by most of my patients. For that what is needed is for the patient to come and speak. I believe there are different and powerful psychotherapeutic approaches and psychoanalysis happens to be one of them.
