Have you been struggling with anxiety? Are you experiencing difficulties at work, school, in social situations and self-esteem? Have you been feeling more sad lately? Therapy can be beneficial and instrumental if you are looking for change in your life. We all have the ability to make positive changes to improve our lives. With years of experience working with adolescents, families, and adults, I am available to support you in dealing with daily struggles and achieving life goals.
Specializing in issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and acculturation, I have much experience working in community settings, schools, and a strong background in crisis intervention. I also speak Portuguese fluently. Clients often express finding it easy to connect with me, and say that "she gets me."
My practice is solution focused & tailored to each one. I want you to leave feeling like you've gained something from our meeting. Clients appreciate my empathic, enthusiastic & direct nature. I am able to provide a combination of support & challenge in order to make change happen. I accept BCBS, Optum, Harvard Pilgrim, United Health, Allways, & private pay.
