Are you struggling with a sense of identity? Wishing that you'd pursued something and now it's "too late?" We're raised to believe that there is a particular timeline our lives need to follow, but in reality, everyone's path and timeline are different. It's never too late to make a change and no matter who we are, or where we are in our lives, we are all capable of change. It's my goal to help you work towards achieving YOUR goals (even if you haven't quite figured out those goals yet).

Have you found yourself feeling sad, worn-down, angry, lonely, or anxious lately? Is your relationship with your significant other, child, or parent not what you would like and you're having trouble relating to them in manner you want? The bad news is that these issues can make life difficult or even unbearable and can lead to further feelings of loneliness and isolation; the good news is that change is possible and you are not alone. As your counselor, we will collaborate to create a plan to meet your goals quickly and effectively.

I believe that we already hold the knowledge and power to heal within ourselves. But what happens if we don’t have the support or courage to do so on our own? That’s where I come in! As your therapist, my goal is to support you on your pathway to healing- whatever that may look like to you. Shame, body image, grief, anxiety, 2SLGBTQ+ concerns, relationship struggles, and children and youth navigating gender identity are all areas of focus in my work. I have a particular interest in supporting those considering conceiving/gestating. Taking that step can feel scary and polarizing in our binary filled world.

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.

The way we experience our lives around us, is vastly shaped by our past learned experiences, especially as children and teenagers. Ideally, a child should learn how to navigate the world with confidence, feels secure and safe, skillfully assured of his/her own ability to problem solve. When someone suffers from anxiety, depression or personality disorders, he/she have been forced to develop different set of skills, mostly on his/her own, designed to defend the body against either perceived or real traumatic events. As a result, their views of themselves and, the world and others, becomes rigid, distorted and generalized.
