I was born and raised in Brazil and my family’s background is European. Having now spent two thirds of my life in the US I am attuned to what it means to navigate different cultures. I am fluent in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French and work therapeutically in those languages.


 Attentive Coaching draws from a rich tapestry of modalities for listening to the mind, body and soul. Integrating the influences of Psychosynthesis, medical QiGong, Meditation, Contemplative Movement and Biography and Social Arts, I bring a deep and sacred respect for slowing down and observing what is going on within us so we can choose how to act rather than react. As part of my background, I also bring over 20 years of experience teaching and mentoring the World Language program in Waldorf Schools.

I am a lifelong learner and an artist at heart. I value human connection, poetry, movement, silence and the natural world. Humor and playfulness are an essential part of my approach to healing. My work with clients supports a process of self-discovery and I look forward to collaborating with you.
