My Background and Approach

I have a background in individual, marriage and family therapy. I received my Master's degree in Mental Health and Marriage and Family Therapy from Barry university, and my bachelor's degree in Marketing and Advertising from Florida Atlantic University. I started volunteering in homeless shelters as a child when I lived in Brazil, and followed in my mom's footsteps later in life, as she was my inspiration to help others in need and make a difference in the world. I began my therapeutic career working with elderly population who were diagnosed with schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder at an Assisted Living Facility. While I was there, I learned that emotional suffering and deep pain, are a part of our journey and human experience. As my journey progressed into community and non- profit work, I realized more and more that people have an innate power and ability to health themselves and move forward in a positive path when given the right tools and motivational assistance.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in providing a safe and comfortable space for clients where healing can begin. I welcome anyone who wants to explore any areas of their life in an open and confidential environment. My staff and I use different treatment modalities, such as, EMDR, Inner Child Work, Motivational Enhancement therapy, Motivational Interviewing, systems thinking and CBT. I provide a sliding fee scale for individuals with no access to quality mental health services. I love volunteering for local organizations and being a part of my community. I am a mother of two small children and have taken many parenting seminars, but I am no expert. I am a fitness enthusiast so I like to incorporate mind, body and spirit into the healing process. I really enjoy going to concerts, dining and meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures.
