“Quit waiting for permission to live your life”. Sometimes in life we can feel stuck and lost and need to seek help. I am a counselor who offers services in English and Portuguese. Coming from a multicultural background I have the experience to work with individuals from diverse social, cultural and religious backgrounds. I believe it’s important for human beings to feel heard and understood. My goal is to establish an environment of trust where you can feel safe and accepted.I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, self-esteem, and adjusting to life changes. I enjoy working with people of all ages and have experience working with children, teenagers, young adults and older adults. I’m trained in ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy).I see the importance of achieving healing and wholeness and work with people to improve their lifestyle and achieve the health and balance they desire. Integrating spirituality and my Christian faith in counseling is an essential part of who I am as a counselor.
