About these Clinics/Practices

I am a psychotherapist and participate in research-intervention activities, with social impact. My work is framed by an interdisciplinary bodywork that draws from relational psychoanalysis, anthropology and socioinstitucional policies, and resorts to narrative, psychosocial and collaborative methodologies.

I don’t follow a model of what mental health is supposed to be or recipes that are the same for everyone. Through a tailored and co-constructed approach, I work together with the clients based on their aims, subjectivity and life story and on what well-being means for each person. The real context is taken into account, including gender, class, culture, trauma and disability. My motto is to help people find their own ways of being who they are in the worlds they inhabit.

My main areas of interest are identity processes/transformations and healthcare accessibility both in relation to diversity: neurodiversity, body diversity and cultural diversity/migrations.
