As a psychoanalyst with eleven years of clinical experience, I can work with you to analyze your life experiences and the unconscious determinations that may be keeping you stuck in some ideas and negative affects. An important aspect of my practice is creating a safe space where you can express yourself freely and work through your thoughts and feelings, while I actively listen, ask questions, and dialogue with you until unheard possibilities arise. Psychoanalysis shows us that words carry the extraordinary power to change not only symptoms but also bodies and perspectives.
I specialize in addressing the interplay between clinical issues and the broader social, cultural, and political contexts. My current focus areas include life transitions, immigration, intercultural relationships, parenting, substance use, and the mental health of university students.
I have worked especially with people who have received diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, substance-related disorders, and psychosis. Over the years, my patients have taught me that people are much more than their diagnoses and that we can always transform ourselves, despite the difficulties.

Psychoanalysis allows us to work through the unconscious, paying special attention to seemingly trivial aspects such as dreams, slips of the tongue, jokes, and symptoms. Unlike traditional psychology techniques that often target only symptom alleviation, we will together investigate and interpret symptoms as messages, uncovering their meanings and enabling profound transformations.

As a psychoanalyst employing the critical tools of schizoanalysis, I grasp that the unconscious extends beyond an archive of familial stories, working as a political arena where personal, cultural, social and historical dimensions intersect.
