I am a psychotherapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy for adolescents and adults, maintaining a private practice in Orlando, FL.
With over 19 years experience as a therapist, and as a graduate of Pontificia Universidade Catolica do RS., Brazil specializing in Clinical Psychology, my areas of expertise are life crisis, eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, substance abuse, mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, phobias, marital and relationship problems (including GLBT issues). My intensive professional training and education, allows me to combine a psychoanalytical vision with cognitive-behavioral interventions in a humanistic and empathic approach. I believe in the uniqueness of individuals and therefore in the flexibility of techniques in a sensitive and non judgmental style. I am very dynamic utilizing humor and analogies to help clients visualize their problems in a more concrete and manageable way.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
