Experienced addiction counselor who is dedicated to social justice and helping oppressed groups reclaim their identity.

Clients who benefit the most from my approach are those who often feel outcasted by their environment, misunderstood in their relationships, or limited in their careers. Throughout sessions, you will be better equipped to resolve conflicts within yourself and with others, feel more confident and free. I've been working mainly with Latinxs and African Americans, but anyone who is willing to explore themselves will benefit greatly from this work.

I work on developing a sound relationship where mutual respect is achieved. I believe you are the expert in your own life; therefore, I am eager to learn about you. However, expect me to challenge you. Being born in Brazil and moving to the USA as an adult, I can relate to many challenges we have to overcome when we feel as if we don't fit in.

You might feel exhausted and sometimes emotionally drained, but you are not alone. Seeking help can be an intimidating process; therefore, I provide free phone consultations where we can talk about the most beneficial way to achieve your goals.
