Embracing who we truly are means honoring our wisdom and challenging our inner judgmental voice. Through our work together, we will build self-awareness and understanding, fostering a sense of curiosity and self-compassion. This may look like navigating feelings of confusion and fear and working towards a place where confronting pain becomes more comfortable. I am here to support you in feeling accepted as your complete, authentic self, and to explore those parts that may have felt unwelcome. With compassion and attentive listening, I promise to hear your stories and walk with you on your journey.
I work from an integrative psychodynamic approach to help you discover ways you have, unknowingly, prevented yourself from succeeding or connecting in relationship. I specialize in working with depression, loss, terminal illness, cultural identity, relationships/couples, & trauma from a relational approach.
Even if this is your first time working with a therapist, I welcome your curiosity and desire to build a deep understanding and acceptance. I can hold space for individuals who speak Portuguese. Sim eu falo português.
