Frustration. Confusion. Anxiety. Misdirected anger. Control issues. Apathy. These are just some of the difficult experiences inherent to our existence. If you've been struggling for some time and what you're doing isn't providing adequate relief, I can help. In a safe and receptive environment I will support you to experience and explore aspects of yourself to gain awareness and insights. As your relationship to self, others and the environment develops, new possibilities will emerge and empower you to make effective personal changes. This offers more authenticity, excitement and courage to living.

With sensitivity, humour and playfulness, I facilitate your connection to self. Our work is based on the premise that there is no right or wrong way of being, but rather, that change occurs when you allow yourself to be who you are; cultivating freedom to rediscover your strengths.

I bring an engaging, creative and direct presence to individual and couples therapy. When you are ready to get started, call me for a free 20 minute consultation.

I am a Certified Gestalt Psychotherapist and am registered with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario. I have a private practice in Toronto since 2008 where I work with individuals, couples and groups. An International Medical Graduate registered with the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP), I have additional training in Art Therapy, Couples Therapy, Sensory Awareness (mindfulness-based) and in Forum Theatre (otherwise known as Theatre of the Oppressed). I am currently faculty-in-training at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.

An activist, community organizer, world traveller and wilderness explorer, I have a broad understanding of diverse cultures and issues of importance to my clients.

I offer therapy in English and Portuguese. My services are covered by most extended insurance plans.
