There are so many things you can do to raise a happy and emotionally intelligent child. I want to show you a few of them.

You can read, listen or see (I love giving people different options) great content about parenting.

You can talk to me directly over the internet or see me in person.

Hello. I’m Cátia Rodrigues dos Santos.

I’m a clinical psychologist working since 2010.

I believe in taking baby steps to a more meaningful life which means I know that parents sometimes – If not every time – can get overwhelmed with everything they have to do, let alone thinking about raising happy and emotionally intelligent children.

One of my main focus is to help parents learn, or bring back to their attention, the right tools for doing this with little steps along the way.

It’s easier when we do one thing at a time, right?!


“Cátia is a very kind person. She is very honest but I never felt judged about my mistakes. This was very important for me. One time she said something that I always go back to: “When you think you did a mistake, pause everything, assess the consequences and understand how you can avoid it next time”. This really helped me not to be so hard on myself and learn from my mistakes without feeling like a failure”

“Before I started my sessions with Cátia I hated the world “routine”. I could never get my 6-month-old baby to sleep on a schedule. Every day and every night was a struggle. With her, I saw that I was wrong about the meaning of that word. I started doing the same things every night with my son, after dinner, and by the end of the third week, he slept 5 hours in a row which was a record for us. He is 2 years now and he does all the steps by himself. He knows what is going to happen and he can sleep all night long. I don’t have to do anything except help him put on his pajamas and brush his teeth.”
