clinical Practice

My practice focuses on the way language is used. Language (verbal and non-verbal) is a crucial element that, unconsciously, shapes a person’s body, history and relationships. I listen very attentively to the way you use words and aim to logically punctuate your speech, so you can inquire its relation to your body, suffering, and desire. 

This therapeutic modality follows analytic techniques developed by Sigmund Freud and critically reviewed by Jacques Lacan (1901-1981), such as: free association, acknowledgement of the person’s life (hi)story, dream analysis, acknowledgement of transference, and the Lacanian variable-length session. 

I understand psychoanalysis as a practice that addresses unconscious truth, which is the power that underlies healing and growth. I consider Lacanian psychoanalysis an effective approach that opens possibilities for life. In my view, the only prescription in psychoanalysis is your desire to engage in the process. Such a process requires commitment, constancy and is an investment in life.

clinical supervision

I provide supervision from a psychoanalytic perspective to clinical practitioners (counsellors, therapists, physicians, etc.). Based on careful listening, the case discussions address transference (the dynamics between the subject and the practitioner), explore the situation seen as problematic, and discuss technical elements promoting an ethical and effective handling of the presented case.

I provide supervision to clinical practitioners individually, but this may also be done in a group, with certain considerations.
