|Designation and Experience:
I have a Ph.D. in Psychology with more than 10 years of experience working with children, families and adults regarding different issues to improve their mental and emotional wellbeing. I originally hail from Brazil where I worked as a Registered Psychologist in private practice and in school environments. My career also included a specialization in Psychoeducational Assessments and experience working with ADHD, cognitive and other developmental delays, anxiety issues and mood disorders. Using the approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and EMDR, I work with clients to improve their quality of life. I am able to provide counseling services in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
What inspires you?
What inspires me is hope. When we have hope things can change for the better, life can be enjoyable and our dreams can come true. Then we can see that happiness is reachable. The hope for a better quality of life, to cope with broken hearts and relationships, to deal with the difficulties that life can bring, this hope moves people to ask for help. It is the hope that I can see in the eyes of my clients, along with their faith and persistence, which inspires me to give my best.
What are your proudest accomplishments?
I am very proud of my family – my lovely husband and my two incredible kids. I am really thankful to have the opportunity to watch and participate in the growth of my children in all areas, physical, emotional, spiritual and social.
What are your Hobbies and Interests?
I love to travel and explore new places, people and environments. Every place has interesting facts about its culture, language, food and traditions. In my view, exploring new places is a chance to open windows to understand the beauty of the diversity we have in our world.
