During consultations, I focus on being supportive and understanding while at the same time being a very thorough professional. I have over twenty years of experience in various levels of care, assisting and guiding clients to adjust to new life situations. Taking the necessary time to listen to you helps me make the best evaluation and together we come up with a treatment plan. Before establishing my practice in the Unites States, I have also had a wide range of experience in Brazil, where for fifteen years, I worked as a clinical psychiatrist and taught medical students and psychiatry residents.
As we work together to tailor your specific plan, psychotherapy and medications can be prescribed as needed, as well as any alternative interventions such as yoga, meditation, and supplements. When working with children and adolescents I consider it extremely important to have an open channel of communications with the caregivers.
Consultations can also be done in Spanish or Portuguese and in both Manhattan and Red Bank locations.
