Pronouns: She/Her/Ela

Self-exploration can be challenging yet liberating. Learning who we are and who we are meant to become is rewarding for ourselves and others. There are many ways to get there, and therapy is one of them. Therapy can be uncomfortable and it can be fun and exciting. I am confident in my listening skills, empathy, humor, desire to learn from others, and being genuine. I focus on co-creating a non-judgemental and transparent space to grow.

I work primarily with three counseling frameworks, Gestalt therapy, Feminist therapy, and Systemic theory. I take a multicultural and social-justice approach in my sessions. I utilize talk therapy and creative tools whenever that makes sense for your clinical work and personality. Your creativity is welcomed. What matters the most is that you feel comfortable being here while accomplishing the goals you set up for your life.

I have years of experience working with communities and helping clients thrive outside our clinic walls (virtual or physical) by utilizing and developing their personal and external resources. I support individuals and families through transitions and challenges involving relationships and communication. Managing our various moods and self-regulation is also one of my strengths. I have experience working with youth and families, couples, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, immigrants, and neurodivergent folks. I can offer my services both in English and Portuguese.
