She/Her/Hers

Born in Brazil, I have lived in the United States for the past 30 years. Experiences of immigration, exile, and displacement bring on emotional and social challenges that can be overwhelming. My professional and personal knowledge of multinational identity makes me especially sensitive to issues of cultural selfhood and adjustment. People with roots in more than one society are exposed to chronic stressors at home, at work, in relationships, and in the activities of daily life. A good-enough fit between self and environment is something we continually build and rebuild, in a hard process that can be beautiful and fascinating.
I’m flexible, friendly, and highly skilled in achieving the results my clients need.Much of my career is about reaching people in their struggles with these issues, resonating with their frustration, pain, and ambivalence as we create new foundations for a life of meaning and achievement in the society we have chosen.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) specialized in Psychological Reports and Evaluations for immigrants. I work with Individuals and their families from any country. Assessment interviews are done by questionnaire (send by email), and interview through Video Telehealth.
