I use a caring, loving and thought-provoking approach to my sessions, emphasizing on open, accepting, and non-judgmental awareness of self. My therapeutic approach is largely based on attachment theory, brain functioning and mindfulness (the basic human ability to be fully present). My main work mission is to help my clients free themselves and discover their true limitless self. With understanding and compassion, you will be able to heal the wounds in your heart.
“We have the power within to remove obstacles to love, which is our own natural state of being.”
I was born and raised in Brazil and have Italian ancestry. I immigrated to the United States in 1992 and obtained my Masters in Counseling Psychology and Drug and Alcohol Abuse Study and Counseling.
