Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Elgin & Sycamore offices and online via Telehealth

I specialize in trauma work. I help parents, children, families, and couples who are frustrated, angry, and hurting to heal and connect in a healthy way, rebuilding their relationships to bring harmony to themselves and their families. Through a family perspective, using the power of play, emotions, attachment, and in-the-moment experiences, I help kids from 0-18, families, and couples to address conflict, depression, anxiety, behavioral challenges, abuse, anger, sexual abuse, trauma, divorce, adoption, and major life changes. I use EMDR and other trauma-informed approaches in my work.

I am from Brazil. I speak Portuguese, Spanish, and English! I am in a cross-cultural marriage, so I have been through the ups and downs of what it means to blend cultures! I am a mother of two boys, 3 and 5, and the stepmom of a 17 year-old girl, soon to be 18! Time flies! 

Don’t struggle alone anymore. Get the help you and your family need! Give us a call today or write us an email! It will be my honor to work together!
