“My fascination with human relationships started very early, when I was a child. I always enjoyed watching people and thinking to myself, what are they thinking about? Are they parents or couples and how do they interact with each other? This led me to decide to become a counsellor, pursuing an inquisitiveness in understanding people.

Since 1999, I started my formal education in Psychology and after many years of working in different public and private practices, I completed a PhD degree in 2013 at the University of Queensland, Australia.

The two areas I am fascinated with is couple relationships and parenting. I have observed many couples during more than ten years of practice and I have helped them move through their relationship problems and thrive in a better relationship.

Besides, I have a deep and long-held interest in investigating children’s development, learning and mental health. This passion is reflected in my diverse employment experience as well as my academic activities, spanning research, teaching and publishing. I have held several university research and teaching positions, as well as having worked in various professional roles within organizations, both small and large.

I welcome working with individuals who have personal psychological problems, as well as parents and couples who face difficulty in their family relationships.”
