The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

Individuals in a variety of life stages experience developmental “growing pains” that impact the ability to cope with intense emotional triggers. I will individualize treatment for each client to use the modality that best works for that person’s unique internal system. My goal is to help clients develop a sense of curiosity and compassion for all parts of themselves so that we can work together to heal the pain.

It's never easy opening up to someone. It's never easy talking about what really matters most. I am multilingual (English, Portuguese and conversational Spanish). My experiences living in Africa, Europe and the USA (moved here in 1997) have fostered my keen appreciation for various teaching, learning, and developmental approaches to counseling/therapy. My counseling style is direct, compassionate and interactive. I believe the most critical aspect of therapy requires a therapist to go beyond just sitting and listening. I believe in establishing trust in order to truly be able to have a positive impact.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Takoma Park view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
