About

My passion is in body psychotherapy. Clients enjoy our work connecting their body/inner strengths and their mind/rational strengths to achieve growth. My clients value the kindness, compassion, and safety I create, so they feel comfortable and heard. I have success working with clients that experience cancer, adoption, grief, stress, excessive worry, depression, conflict with others, life transitions, and parenting issues. Caregivers and family members of cancer patients find working with me helpful, healing, and nurturing. Clients that are not comfortable just talking really appreciate the tools I give them.
Clients report feeling better, centered, & connected working with me. My training in Neuroaffective Touch, Brainspotting, EMDR, EFT, Resilience ToolKit, TRE, & Mindfulness informs my unique style of body psychotherapy. I provide an added level of expertise to this process. REMINDER- I am Out of Network but offer a concierge service for PPO insurance plans
I am bilingual, fluent in Portuguese and have a deep appreciation for muti-cultural work. Clients that enjoy working with me vary; adolescents/teens, young adults, launching adults, established adults, and aging adults as individuals, families, and in couples. Reach out to see if my way of therapy suits you.
