My approach is characterized as collaborative, compassionate, and active, where individuals can find authenticity in themselves and make meaningful change in their life by recognizing patterns and finding a voice for themselves. My client focus ranges from LGBTQ individuals working on coming out, to immigrants adjusting to life in NYC, to adults dealing with anxiety, depression, identity issues, grief and bereavement, and relationship and intimacy concerns. I strive to continue enhancing LGBTQ+ Affirmative therapy, so I am also a therapist at the Psychotherapy Center for Gender and Sexuality at ICP.
I draw on psychodynamic, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to help people develop a more holistic sense of themselves so that they have more control over their lives. I am passionate about helping people gain awareness and become more authentic and agentic.
Through personalized therapy, I am dedicated to developing a working relationship with clients. I see therapy as an opportunity to work together to develop goals and create a more satisfying and flourishing life. I am bilingual and also offer therapy in Brazilian Portuguese, my native language.
