It’s important that therapy is a collaboration between the therapist and the client. Working together in a safe, compassionate environment, I teach you skills to help you cope with your issues.
Life is hard so it’s important to not only have a therapist you feel comfortable working with, but also one who empowers you. You want to understand yourself and have the knowledge to apply what you learned to other problems that arise.
Types of Therapy
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), but depending upon what’s best for you, I use a variety of other techniques. These include: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Focus Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Positive Psychology.
I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationship problems, marital conflict, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), sexual issues as well as victims of sexual and physical abuse. Additionally, I help people cope with other emotional and psychological problems. I accept some insurance plans.

Spanish and Portuguese
Since I’m fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, I can provide therapy in any of these languages to individuals, couples, and families. As an immigrant from Brazil, I understand firsthand cross-cultural issues so can empathize, connect with, and understand people who are having difficulties adapting to a new country.
