M.C. , RCC, Psychotherapist
“Not every story has a happy ending,...but the discoveries of science, the teachings of the heart, and the revelations of the soul all assure us that no human being is ever beyond redemption. The possibility of renewal exists so long as life exists. How to support that possibility in others and in ourselves is the ultimate question" - Gabor Maté
I welcome people from all cultures and experiences, ages, genders and sexuality, immigrants, refugees and members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. As a BIPOC woman raised in Brazil, and a settler in Canada for over 20 years, and a trained psychotherapist, I bring to my practice and life a multicultural, compassionate lens, exploring with curiosity the influence of intersectionality in my clients' lives. I am an avid student, always educating myself and advocating for marginalized communities.
My approach as a trauma psychotherapist is multi-layered, drawing from a range of modalities, including but not limited to: Compassionate Inquiry (CI), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and mindfulness practices. I am also trained in psychedelics-assisted psychotherapy. This broad range of skills allows me to design the most individualized approach for each client’s unique needs.
I have a particular interest in trauma, anxiety, addictions, depression, eating disorders, grief, and psychedelic integration.
