Professional statement

Thiago's therapy approach is psychodynamic in nature, which departs from the presupposition that psychic phenomenon is multi varied and resides in the whole bodymindspirit. There's never just one cause for something.

Thiago combines his training in Buddhist Psychology, Existential philosophy, and psychoanalytic theory uniquely into the way he practices. Currently, Thiago is also offering remote therapy sessions.

Message to clients

I specialize in navigating complex power struggles and inner conflicts. Great suffering may be present with paradoxical feelings and associated vulnerabilities and insecurities. This also means there's tremendous potential for vitality and self-actualization to emerge. True growth. Perhaps you feel this intuitively already? Creating a less stressful, healthier, and more satisfying plateau in life should be of interest to you. Clarifying confusion and getting to the root of their origins should also be part of your motivation here. However, meeting someone else's mind along the way, a savvy guide, can be quite useful at times.
