I am a Board Certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychologist, licensed in Florida and in New York. I am originally from Brazil, and I speak Portuguese and English. I work with young children to adults with anxiety, ADHD, neuro-developmental disorders, depression, behavioral disorders, selective mutism, family difficulties, psychological evaluations, and consultation to schools, doctors, and places of work. I use empirically-based protocols of therapy, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Parent-Child Interactive Therapy. I incorporate parents, teachers, and others in the treatment team, and often therapy happens at school, at home, or other settings where the difficulties happen.

The goal of treatment is to help decrease symptoms and to prevent more serious conditions and symptoms From developing in the future, especially in the case of children. Preventive work is best done when parents seek psychological help when symptoms first appear that show impairment for the child.

I speak Portuguese and English. I can test children and adults in both languages (and with standardized instruments from Brazil). My specialties and areas of clinical research are Selective Mutism, Anxiety, ADHD and related conditions, Cognitive/behavioral rigidity, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Preschool Interventions, and Adult ADHD
