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.

About me

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 practice which I have since 2008. I’ve mostly worked in São Paulo/Brazil and since 2018 I am based in Berlin. I worked in psychiatric hospitals having dedicated some years to the clinic of mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder). Since 2012, I provide clinical services for multi-centered clinical trials also within the psychedelic science field.

My approach

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.
