I am a bilingual psychotherapist, Independent licensed in Massachusetts and clinically trained with over 20 years of experience, both in Brazil and the United States. I provide psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and their families and adults. I work with the multicultural population who is struggling with childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, and other major mental health illness.

I work in conjunction with clients. I use a personal-centered approach and tailor individual treatment plans with clients using their sense of self, family and medical history, and cultural and spiritual experience. If needed, we involve families, medical doctors, and other specialists. The treatment plan may include a school counselor and teachers if the client approves when working with adolescents.
I recently created a parenting group to help immigrant parents to be able to cultivate a healthy attachment with their children, who are the first generation born in the USA. I am advancing the understanding and application of EMDR and IFS.
