Hi! I'm Lígia, a Portuguese psychologist currently living in Amsterdam.


I believe we depend on our surroundings to be who we are. Thus, the focus of my intervention is on the way we relate to the world: family, friends, work, country.

Regardless of the form - individual, couple or family - I favor sharing and the search for combined solutions, without judgment, with a view to promoting personal development and autonomy, enhancing well-being and quality of life.


Welcome to!
