I offer psychotherapy in many areas, including LGBTQIA+ individuals working on strengthening identity, immigrants adjusting to living in NYC, adults and young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, anger management, identity, grief and bereavement, trauma, and relationship and intimacy concerns.

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Relationship and Intimacy Concerns

  • LGBTQIA+ Related Concerns

  • Difficulty with Assertiveness

  • Brazilian/Immigration/Acculturation Issues

  • Adjustment Concerns

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?  

We all have some difficulty with being vulnerable with others, especially a stranger. So I try my best to normalize this and express that we all have this worry. Between the nervousness and finding the right fit, I try to empower people to come in for a few sessions and try it out. By normalizing and offering compassion and support, clients are often able to commit to therapy and become more accepting of how rewarding it can be. Therapy can be a good next step for you if you need a safe space to process and explore life's challenges and complexities.
