I aim to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental presence for clients to explore personal challenges. I am committed to helping my clients feel seen and heard and prioritize a trauma-informed approach that puts their sense of security at the forefront of our work. I work collaboratively with clients to identify goals and understand experiences from their perspective. When we are in a relationship with someone compassionate and accepting of all that we are, we can explore deeper parts of ourselves.

Born in Brazil, raised in Portugal, educated in the USA and rooted in Canada, I can say my path has been a beautiful blend of cultures, opportunities and experiences.  My path to becoming a psychotherapist started in 2005 when I decided to move from Portugal to Montana, USA for my undergraduate program in Psychology, where I also had the opportunity to represent my University through tennis, traveling and competing across the United States.  In 2008, I continued my education with a Masters in Mental Health Counselling in New York, USA. So far in my career, I have worked in crisis response, in acute psychiatric facilities, community work, meeting families in their home environments, as well as outpatient services.  I have always felt a call towards being a Psychotherapist, and that call, as I understand it now, was my being, my inner light wanting to experience and call other people’s inner light, through caring, compassionate presence. It is honour to have this opportunity.

I am always looking to learn, consistently educating myself as well as deepening my understanding of who I am, and my purpose. I feel blessed that I get the opportunity to know, and witness so many brave souls shine in their journeys.
