About Gustavo Woltmann
My name is Gustavo Woltmann and I am a licensed Psychologist. I have been working as a licensed psychologist for over 10 years.
I earned my degree in Psychology at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), and proceeded to further my studies Florida State University in the United States.
I have been interested in Psychology ever since my cousin was diagnosed with schizophrenia. His diagnosis came at an early age, and at first we struggled because we couldn’t find a good psychologist for him, the medication he was prescribed was not the right one and so on. Watching all this struggle I decided that I want to help people like him and my family too so that they don't struggle as much as we all did.
Thankfully, nowadays my cousin is better, but he inspires me every day to help more and more people. My cousin is very dear to me, and that’s why you are likely to see a photo of him on my desk during our sessions.
When speaking of the future, my goals are varied. I wish to stay in psychology and keep helping people with eating disorders. That being said, I am interested in branching out into studying nutrition. I hope to develop healthy diets geared towards people recovering from eating disorders so they can have a smooth transition out of illness and into recovering.
