About Me
Untitled design (2).png

In 1999, I completed my degree in Psychology and subsequently obtained my master's degree in Social Psychology at the prestigious University of Brasília, one of the best higher education institutions in Brazil.

In 2003, I embarked on a new adventure with my family, leaving Brazil. Since then, I have lived abroad for more than two decades.

During my seven years of clinical practice in Bangkok, I gained a deep understanding of expatriate life and the challenges of culture shock. My stay in the United States also enriched my knowledge in this area. I undertook training in couples therapy, clearly understanding how expatriation can negatively affect marital relationships. Additionally, I have dedicated time to studying positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and coaching techniques in order to meet the needs of expatriate women.

Just like you, a woman who embraced life abroad to keep her family together, I know firsthand the difficulties of this journey. Having overcome these challenges and invested in my education, I feel prepared to offer assistance.

My job is to provide assistance and guidance in resolving personal, social and psychological issues faced by women, especially those living as expatriates, whether through therapy, mentoring, counseling or relocation guidance.
