About me

Originally from Brazil, I have been working as a psychotherapist since 1996. From my early career years up until now, I have always had an immense curiosity and fascination for the human ability for transformation and change. 

Being a mother of 4, and having traveled the world for the last 25 years (Belgium, Hong Kong, Israel, Brazil and The Netherlands), I had the chance to experience and learn about different cultures, visions of the world, values, transitions and ways of coping with life challenges. Being a foreigner myself, I deeply understand the challenges and stresses that moving to a new country requires. Some of us may have a hard time finding a comfortable place and voice in the new foreign land. 

I consider myself an open minded, positive person who tries to integrate my personal experiences with my professional practice, allowing me to resonate with those issues and help you navigate such challenges.

EDUCATION

  • PhD Candidate at Institute of Medical Education Research Rotterdam, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

  • M.A. Master in Health Professionals Education, Maastricht University, The Netherlands.

  • Residency Specialization Program for Clinical Psychologists, Tel Hashomer Hospital, Israel.

  • B.A. Clinical Psychology, University of  Sao Paulo, Brazil.

In my work, I hope to help my patients re-connect with unknown aspects of their emotional experience, as they express themselves in the present life. I found that this process usually produces transformation, better choices, and a more fulfilled life. You will find me to be a curious, warm, and caring psychotherapist, with a good sense of humor and an optimistic view of human beings. 

Both in Brazil, Israel, and The Netherlands, my training and experience have focused on contemporary psychoanalytic theories and techniques. But in some situations, I use other techniques as CBT and Short Term Therapy.

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Life transitions and cultural issues

  • Work stress and burnout

  • Relationship conflicts
