About

My approach is based on integrative psychiatry, which uses medications, therapy and complementary medicine to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I address the combined impact of sleep, lifestyle, relationships, nutrition and chronic medical conditions on well-being, and use cutting edge tools like genetic testing to guide personalized treatment with medication and supplements. I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. My goal is to help my patients create lasting changes and build vitality, resilience and purpose in life.
Originally from Brazil, I moved to the US 20 years ago to pursue a Master’s degree in Counseling, and worked as a therapist for several years before becoming a Medical Doctor. My experience as a therapist has given me a deeper understanding of my patients' struggles, allowing me to address the root of their issues rather than superficially treat symptoms.
I am licensed to practice telehealth statewide and can see you by video call from the safety and comfort of your home. I also have office availability in several locations for occasional in-person sessions. Please call me to briefly discuss your concerns and goals for treatment.
