I am a Portuguese Licensed Psychologist and Psychotherapist with clinical experience since 2006. I was born in Porto and got my professional training in Lisbon. I currently work with adults in both Porto and Lisbon.
In addition to the private practice, I was involved, for several years, in community intervention working directly with people facing issues related to migration, homelessness, sex work, and drug addiction. Within that line of work I also supervised teams of professional psychologists and Psychology internes.
I worked with college students in a Psychotherapy project within a polytechnic context.
I have been a trainer of Existential Psychotherapy students.
In private practice I have worked mainly with people presenting issues initially linked to Anxiety or Depression.
Currently my professional activity is dedicated, as trainer, to the Portuguese Society of Existential Psychotherapy, along with the private practice in Lisbon (Picoas) and Porto (Av. Boavista).
I provide sessions in English and Portuguese.
