Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. Life can be overwhelming at times and it can feel as if you are not properly equipped to handle the difficulties you have to face. I believe that we all try to do the right thing, but sometimes old habits persist, unwanted feelings intrude, and we can feel like we are doing it all alone. If you choose to explore working with me, I hope to encourage your natural curiosity about your life, your relationships, and your current circumstances. I hope to encourage connections that lead you towards lasting change.

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.

In my years of working with diverse populations, I've learned what we all have in common is difficulty at times with the human experience. Whether it's a mood disorder or debilitating anxiety or addiction, we suffer and need help at these times. From identity issues to discomfort in one's own skin, we know when we're not living fully. Our innate resilience and joy become buried under layers of defenses, but they're still there. Let's uncover them together. For your busy schedule and convenience, I offer evenings and weekend sessions.
