My drive as a therapist comes from my own place of birth and acceptance within myself. I have been working with women, couples and families for 20+ years as a counselor focusing on supporting: women individually and in group settings; couples to increase their levels of intimacy and their communication as they move through various chapters in their life cycle; birth and trauma counseling; women and families on increasing communication around issues related to healthy relationships, parenting and sexuality.
My multi-cultural background spans Europe, South and North America. I am first generation American and grew up speaking Portuguese, Spanish and English. My language capacity and my experience in working as a multi-cultural therapist greatly informs my work in understanding my clients and how their own family lineage affects their style of communication and internalized sense of intimacy.
