About me

I am passionate about helping people. Healing and happiness are big words in my life. I believe that life is full of changes, those transitions can present emotional and psychological challenges that can be better addressed in a supportive and nurturing counseling environment. I believe that brokenness, challenges and life transitions can be restored when an individual partners with a trustworthy and compassionate professional to rediscover strength and acquire skills to deal with these transactions and unlock the treasures that lie within. There, we find the Essence of our Joy. I am passionate about family, therapy and helping others. My innate compassion for people and my clients compels me to whole heartedly focus on promoting fast healing.

I am from Brazil and love helping people from all cultures.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a MS in Clinical Psychology but my most important credential is a heart for helping people, and I would love to help you too!

Luciana is absolutely fabulous! I’ve only had one session with her and I feel understood and cared for and helped. She’s such a great listener and very kind hearted and sweet. You can really tell that she cares about what she does and her patients by how she speaks and address this you. She is so great and I’m glad to have her as my therapist.
