Welcome to my site!
Here you will find information about the ways in which I support people in their quest for development and transformation.
My name is Carlos Rivas. I studied psychology in Venezuela and continued my postgraduate studies in philosophy and social sciences. I also completed a Ph.D. at the European Graduate School, which focused on psychoanalysis and sexuality. This path led me to be a thinker, reflecting on human issues at various levels. I bring these insights everywhere I am consulted.
Along with my academic interest, I have been a clinician immersed in psychotherapy for over 20 years. I have gained knowledge on specific psychotherapy modalities and different presenting issues clients bring (e.g. anxiety, depression, trauma, and emotional issues associated with chronic conditions, among many others). I have worked with a broad range of populations (e.g. immigrants and refugees, humanitarian workers, LGBTQ+ community, and seniors, to name a few of them), initially through community agencies, where I wore different hats – volunteer, counsellor, and manager. Currently, I only work in private practice.
