About Me

I am a psychoanalyst from Brazil, currently living in Singapore, where I settled my own practice and joined several associations related to Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. I like to work with individuals, families, couples, teenagers and older children and I also give workshops on family matters. I started my journey through Freud & Lacan, but today I gather to my work a lot using broader concepts of psychoanalysis of contemporary thinkers like Winnicott, Ferenczi, the relational thinkers like Lewis Aron, Steve Mitchell and Joyce Slochower.


In Couples Counselling, I added studies from winnicotian perspective four couples, have studied the Gottman Method as well as Sue Johnson's EFT for couples and I take part on the professional body technique review session from Esther Perel. I believe when working with couples we must dig into familiy patterns, attachments, communication skills, intimacy capability in order to understand that there is no perfect model, but the goal is to achieve something that is good for them only.   

My compromise is to always be learning and updated among the recent theories and modalities, filtering what is serious and what is relevant to a deeper construction with my patients that can result on good understanding of themselves. I don’t believe in BandAid therapy, or any method of “easy psychotherapy” as I believe we have to dig deeper to understand past patterns and the underlying reasons why we put ourselves in situations that we would like to be different. I believe there are therapeutical tools and techniques very helpful in specific phases of our lives, but I do believe everyone should allow themselves into the experience of going through the psychoanalysis journey so one can have a better understanding of themselves.

Although it may sound harsh, I do have an empathic observation of what is brought from my patients, and we constantly work together on alternative solutions, possibilities and scenarios. I am an accessible therapist who does desire a lot of good outcomes to my patients.

If you feel we can give yourself a shot, let’s put your life in different perspectives.
