Announcement icon I use the HIPAA compliant Teletherapy platform Doxy.me (with Stripe payment system). Clients need a Smart phone or a computer for sessions.
I am interested in helping and in understanding. My ideal client would be someone, who is willing to take the necessary time to educate me about him or herself, and who would be willing to reflect on events involved in and outside of the therapy session. Relationships matter. I can provide advice, can problem solve, but prefer to work in a relational, psychodynamic approach, where together we can figure things out. I am an immigrant, who believes everyone can benefit from building a positive therapeutic relationship, where problems can be worked through and their meanings understood. Due to COVID, I also offer Telehealth.
I work psychodynamically. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and elderly. Currently, I only work with adults. My areas of interest include: documented and undocumented immigration experience, grief and loss, trauma, sexual abuse, physical abuse and/ or neglect, relationship problems, mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and adjustment disorders.
I am a Brazilian psychologist, with two Masters & a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. I am fluent in Portuguese, am a Past-President of the NJ Psychological Association and received the APA Div 31 Psychologist of the Year Award in 2021. I offer a sliding scale, but do not belong to any insurance panel. Call me to see if I am the right fit for you.
