Open yourself to refreshing new beginnings and opportunities; resolve issues so they stay resolved.

Originally from Brazil and fluent in Spanish, English and Portuguese, I have had particular success treating patients who have suffered difficulties with acculturation issues and the negative or painful impact of these issues on their lives.

It is my belief that everyone navigates his or her way through their family of origin and early environment by developing strategies and coping techniques, essentially doing the best one can in the circumstances. Later, these ways of handling relationships and stressors can become limiting. Members of couples and families can also develop entrenched ways of relating that become partially based on assumptions. Frustration, anxiety, disappointment and depression can result. Psychotherapy enables you to understand the evolution of these patterns and develop more choices in how you respond and relate to others.
