As a longtime businessman and CEO, husband, father of seven and grandfather of many, I know how challenging it is to be your best self, and how difficult to reconcile your personal and professional lives. These very challenges led me to the psychoanalytic couch in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where I grew up. I was blown away by the results. So blown away that I decided to become a professional therapist and bring this gift to others.

I specialize in psychotherapy for depression, whether it is severe, or simply to help people find themselves and bring their lives to greater fruition. As a analyst, my goal is to help you understand what’s going on in your internal, emotional world. You’re brilliant in most areas of your life, so why are you sometimes stuck in other areas? The answer is because It’s not a matter of intelligence. It’s because our mind and psyche is so deep and vast, that we need someone to help us figure out ourselves. This will enable you to find solutions that work for you on an individual basis, and help you to discover the true potential of your life, so everyday can be a celebration, and feel like a real ‘breath of fresh air.’

 

There may be no magic button or quick-fix solution when it comes to changing things from the past that have been difficult, but we’ll work together to find comfort and resolve the difficult areas of your life, and the challenges you have to face. We’ll figure out what behaviors and/or thoughts might be holding you back from living your best life, and finding meaning in everyday situations.

Whether you’re looking for support or guidance through a particularly difficult time, or you’re open to a real change in your life and where you’re going, together, we can work to achieve dreams, and meet your goals.

 

There is no ‘perfect person’ for this type of therapy. Anyone dealing with any type of behavioral or emotional issues, from work stress to couple’s counseling, and everything in between, is welcome. You can rest assured that you will be in a comfortable, supportive, and encouraging environment, where the focus will be on you alone – there is no ‘cookie cutter’ way of doing things here, and your individual needs to achieve growth are the top priority.
