"I believe that a good psychotherapy treatment should facilitate a process of self-inquiry, where one discovers, over time, how to become more authentic, both with oneself and with others. I practice deep listening with my patients and hold space while they explore their inner world, thoughts, feelings, fantasies, and visions. I specialize in treating people with mood disorders, distress associated with chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse problems."

"So, you are browsing for someone to help you. There are many here who can, myself included. Effective therapy is first and foremost about good fit. Can we collaborate on a solution for you? Do I care enough to hear what you are saying and feel what you are not ready to say? Am I patient enough to give you time to share in your own time and in your own way? Am I willing to be directive when you most need it, even though you may not want that? In a word, "Yes.""

"Life is stressful, and sometimes it seems overwhelming. That's where I can help. Many of my clients are highly motivated, achievement-oriented professionals who feel held back or "stuck." Some are dealing with stress and anxiety, some are having trouble finding focus or motivation, and many are trying to clarify their purpose and direction. I help them find a way through these issues--particularly as they show up in the workplace. Like it or not, we spend a huge amount of time and energy at work, so it's important that we spend it well."

"My approach to therapy emphasizes self knowledge, empowerment and insight helping move towards a more integral, meaningful and gratifying life. It is with passion and kindness that I witness the healing transformation a person goes through in the therapeutic relationship. Originally from Brazil, I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese working with clients who speak these languages. Three theories permeate my work: the Integral theory of Ken Wilber, Psychodynamic theory, and Hakomi. I integrate into the analysis the physical, mental, emotional, and social parts of the self (Integral) in a mindfulness-based, body inclusive, and experiential perspective (Hakomi)."

""And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" -Anaïs Nin. There are times when we feel lost, confused, even fearful. Perhaps we find ourselves at a crossroads, undergoing life changing experiences. We want to deepen our relationship to all aspects of our lives, and may feel we know where we would like to be, but cannot find a foothold, or begin the journey alone. If any of these relate to your life situation, you are probably ready to enter into the therapeutic process."

"I have come to realization that we all need tools and guidance to navigate through life. As a therapist, I see myself as an ally who will help you to better understand your own choices and to cope with the changes in your life. As human beings, we value happiness, and we reject feeling sad, angry, nervous. As we experience these “negative feelings “, we become frustrated with ourselves, even angry. Nobody wants to be anything but happy. What if we were able to accept those “other feelings” for what they are...Therapy helps to better understand the moments in which changes seem overwhelming and unnecessary. Therapy helps to simply “sit with those feelings”, no judgement; just observing. I can help you to be in a place in your life where you can feel more comfortable with who you are, where you can become more aware of your capacities and more accepting of your own struggles. You are the expert on your own life. My job is only to assist you through therapy in your journey to self discover, acceptance and letting go....."
