Welcome! I'm a multicultural social worker Portuguese and Spanish speaking who has had the priviledge of working with children, teens, adults and families on trauma and a variety of mental issues for over 12 years. It's is not our challenges that define us but our willingness to ask for help and start the journey towards health and healing. The journey never ends so my gift to you is to offer you tools to build a strong foundation for support through the challenges that may lay ahead of you. It is possible and I know you can do it!

I approach health and wellness as the interconnection between mind, body and soul so my role as a therapist is to guide and support you in reconnecting with your inner sources of strength and wisdom and learning new skills to create more positive experiences that will impact all areas of your lives. My theoretical basis is Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

As a multicultural therapist, I trully appreciate diversity so my goal is to start where you are and make you feel welcomed and safe to grow and allow me to be a part of your healing process.
