LISW, CCTP-II, Certified and CIT EMDR Therapist, Trained and Certified FBT Professional
I am a mental health clinician, Independent Licensed Social Worker, Certified and Consultant-in-Training EMDR therapist and Certified Complex Trauma Professional, bicultural and bilingual in English and Portuguese. I have over 20 years of Clinical Psychology and counseling experience. I am a licensed psychologist in Brazil and was educated at UNISINOS in Rio Grande do Sul. I completed a Master of Social Work at the University of Iowa in 2021, emphasizing individual and family therapy. I obtained my EMDR certification in 2022, and I am trained in Family Based Therapy from Stanford University for treating adolescents (ages 12-18) with Anorexia Nervosa. I finished my certification in FBT from the Training Institute for Child and Adolescents with Eating Disorders in California in 2023.
I am excited to announce a new program. Starting in January 2024, I will share my clinical experience including supervision and consultations for therapists pursuing training and certification in this gold standard for treatment of Anorexia Nervosa.
If you are a new therapist or are interested in making the leap to opening your own private practice, I can help you to make this transition with confidence and support. For New Therapists Consultations group meetings or individual sessions are scheduled monthly on Zoom.
