About

The way I work, simply put, is all about you. It’s about your goals and what is important for you to achieve. Some describe me as “lovingly confrontational”. This means I will not only witness your growth process and encourage you; but I will also tell you whenever I feel you are preventing yourself from becoming the person you want to be. I will ask you questions to understand exactly what is happening with you. For example, if you tell me, “Im anxious”, I won't assume what that means based upon my own beliefs, but rather I will be curious, ask questions and I will try to learn more about what that means to you. Let me help you.
Congratulations and welcome! You just took the first step for a change and I am happy to help you search for a new path in life. Nobody knows your life better than yourself. Together, we can collaborate and find solutions and changes you want to implement.
Originally born in Brazil, but earned my first Master's Degree (Migration Studies) in the UK in 2009. I moved to the US in 2012 and earned my 2nd Master's Degree at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). My website is: www.leoteleslmft.com
