"I believe in the innate healing power within each individual, and I aim to empower this ability within you. You can be your own best friend, and my purpose in life is to show you how. Often during times of transition, trauma and loss we can feel disconnected and lost. Our insecurities and fears come out, and our attempts to hide them can become time consuming and energy draining.Overcoming this struggle and rediscovering our connections and self-esteem are worthwhile goals."

"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)."

With warmth and humor, I am skilled at helping clients make meaning of the suffering, while facilitating and eliciting options that lead out of it. I work with couples and individuals of different races, ethnicities, sizes, orientations, genders, and ages. Therapy is the process of examining your life as a great novel in process of being created. My job is to help you envision and shape the next chapter."

With this unique window into the lifespan, I help children, parents, adults and couples gain insight into the patterns being created and already created in the mind of how they relate to and with the world i.e.how they relate to themselves and others. By first developing a safe and respectful relationship with my patients, we can begin to understand and uncover these complicated yet reflexive patterns that at some point served them, by protecting their self integrity, but along the way began to cause more harm then good."
