This Hart therapist holds a Post Graduate degree in Psychoanalysis from University of Santa Ursula (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and is a registered member of the Australian Counselling Association.
She is an experienced psychoanalyst, having worked in private practice seeing adults, couples and children, with a special interest on anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues. She also has an interest in working with infertility as well as recent immigrants to Australia and the issues they face settling in the country and culture. She has worked as a psychoanalyst on some governmental social projects in needy communities in Brazil.
She will often adjust her techniques to meet the client’s needs as each individual is unique and demands a different hearing/ approach. She integrates Mindfulness in her sessions, finding the method can be very useful at times.
Our ever growing Sydney team of over 40 specialised couples’ therapists have been specially selected to join the Hart Centre on the grounds of their compassionate natures and their extensive knowledge and experience of all things couples counselling.
We understand how distressing and confusing relationship troubles feel, and we’re truly sorry you have had to experience such pain. Our united goal at The Hart Centre is to work with you to identify the underlying causes of your relationship distress, and help you rebuild your relationship into a new and mature loving bond.
Couples counselling is a highly specialised field. To ensure you are receiving the very latest and best care, we provide ongoing yearly professional development training to our group of Hart Certified therapists in the latest world-class relationship methodologies.

HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE THE BEST THERAPIST TO HELP?
A relationship in trouble is a painful experience, and we understand that our clients want to process their feelings, resolve their issues, and get back on track as quickly as possible.
At The Hart Centre, we require all of our therapists to take part in our initial training as well as our annual in-house conferences, where we have relationship and marriage experts from all over the world share their wisdom.
There are two important elements to getting the best results from counselling. Firstly, the therapist must be experienced and knowledgeable in the field of relationships; and secondly, a good therapeutic relationship must be developed. Numerous studies show that the relationship between a therapist and client is one of the most important factors predicting successful therapy outcomes. This means that you and your partner feel supported and understood by the therapist.
To help you make this decision, we provide a detailed biography of each of our therapists on our website which details experience, qualifications, and therapy styles. This way you can feel confident that the therapist you are seeing is a good fit for you.
