Hi, I’m Renata – a location-independent Counselor, Psychologist, and human being.
I’m originally from Brazil, and just like most of the people I work with, I’ve moved countries a few times, been figuring out how to raise my kids internationally, and met a few obstacles to continuing my career as we moved around.
The most rewarding thing about my work is witnessing a client walk away lighter, starting to believe in their strengths again, making the changes they wish for, being kinder to themselves, and regaining hope for the future.
Some people come for a deeper healing journey. Others, for work more focused on a specific aspect of their lives, like their career, a recent loss, or after an overwhelming life event like divorce, medical diagnosis, or moving.
My clients tell me that working with me is gently challenging and that I offer a safe, understanding, and generative space.
