About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Paula is extremely helpful in her guidance. She is resourceful and is great at meeting you where you are while pushing you to fulfill your own goals

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I provide trauma-informed care to people experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, grief, immigration issues and traumatic experiences. My biggest goal is to make you feel heard, seen and worthy.

  • Together, we will:

    I work with clients on developing a treatment plan and establishing achievable goals together - YOU are the expert on yourself, right? we will develop a toolbox with coping skills that will help deal with moments of struggle, and increase self love.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are dealing with grief and loss, immigration adjustment; traumatic experiences; LGBTQIA+ (trans and non-binary specifically); anyone struggling with managing the highs and lows of the rollercoaster we call living! :)

  • I became a therapist because:

    I think everyone should be listened to without judgement or biases.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I will challenge you to get out of your comfort zone while navigating the discomfort with you; we seek therapy because something needs to change.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I am Brazilian and I have been living in the USA for almost 10 years; therefore, I am not a huge fan of abiding to societal expectations and doing things to please others. I encourage my clients to explore within themselves what makes them happy.
