About Me

Hi! My name is Camilla Dorand and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) as well as a Certified Hypnotherapist.

I am very fortunate to live a life full of powerful lessons; the struggles and challenges that I have faced have allowed me to be in a position where I can truly help people transform themselves, and their lives. Throughout the years I have been able to reinvent myself personally, and professionally. I started my career as a lawyer in Brazil, and then evolved into becoming an Image Consultant and Lifestyle Coach, where I helped clients explore their strengths, feel confident, and empowered so that they could change their lives for the better. After going through thyroid cancer and reevaluating my priorities, I was ready to take my passion for helping people to the next level, so I become a psychotherapist, and here I am.

I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, from their adolescent years to their golden ones. I believe in helping my clients by creating a safe space, and using the theoretical approaches that best fit their needs. I am non-judgmental, warm, compassionate, and very tuned into what my clients are looking for. I am also proactive and goal-oriented. I hope to guide you through your therapeutic process so that you can overcome the issues that have brought you to therapy to help you live a balanced and fulfilled life.

If you feel that I would be a good fit for you I will be happy to help you reach your goals.

Camilla has a unique approach to counseling that has been enormously helpful in only a few sessions. If you are interested in hypnotherapy at all, I highly recommend Camilla.

I haven't been working with Camilla for very long but she is amazing! She listens, she's straight forward, and honest. She makes the experience more comfortable. Her method of therapy is different from what I've tried in the past. She will make sure I leave with a recap of the session and what I got from it. When I cry in my sessions, she always somehow ends up making me laugh. And I always leave with a feeling of hope. I highly recommend her! :)

Camilla is excellent, she helped me a lot, she doesn't judge, and she doesn't jump to conclusions, she helps you to understand and change your situation internally. I highly recommend Camilla.

Camilla has been an amazing counsellor so far and has offered and provided a lot of insight and compassion regarding my situation. The counselling sessions we have had have been enlightening and helpful and I feel hopeful for the first time in a long time that I can get my mental health on track. I feel as though Camilla is always ready to listen offer a support and understanding and I feel I can trust her wholeheartedly.

I just started working Camilla and she is fantastic. It’s my first time doing counseling so I’m new to the experience and she takes that into account while she is helping me. Camilla is very easy to talk to and she is great at boiling things down and getting to more of the root of the situations. She always has time to answer questions, concerns, and is open to making things easy to understand. She also responds to messages promptly. Her challenges that she gives really helps with working on the underlying issues that I’ve never thought about. With the active listening she does, she’s helping me get through the things I’m dealing with by providing challenges and advice. She really cares about people and it shows in her work. I look forward to my sessions with her because I always walk away feeling like I’m learning more about myself to become a stronger person.

I have only been with Better Help and Camilla for the past month or so, and right off the she made me excited and glad that I made the decision to talk with someone. Camilla has been very professional, yet down-to-earth. She's easy to talk to, but also pushes me to be "comfortable with the uncomfortable".

Thank you, Camilla!!
