About me

I'm a psychoanalyst and member of the international Lacanian School IF-EPFCL, while my training is deeply influenced by the Argentinian Lacanian community. Besides individual psychoanalysis in Freud and Lacan orientation, I work also in the field of social work, social welfare policy, and consulting for non-profit organizational development, with clinical and institutional experience across Hong Kong, New York, and Berlin.

My approach

Talk therapy in orientation of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis.

//

Psychoanalysis, unlike other forms of therapies, is not a method of neutralisation (forcing the patient to accept and become what others consider as "normal", "healthy", or "positive"). These forces and believes, in the name of cure, oftentimes exhaust the patients and left them no room to speak for themselves.

My practice of psychoanalysis offer a space for you to speak with dignity.

Talking cure gives each person the opportunity to transform from a passive object of mental illness to an agent to sublimate our unique symptoms with dignity, to live with what we could not live without.
