Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.

I have a Master's degree in Ethnic Studies from San Francisco State University, and I focus on racial issues among Latin Americans with a focus on the social behavior of Brazilians who have immigrated to the United States.


With experience in both Brazilian and American cultures, I have developed an interest in social behavior and interdisciplinary studies, strengthening my curiosity especially about social psychology, the human life cycle, and cultural diversity. 


I first majored in Social and Behavioral Sciences, Humanities, and Case Management and Facilitation Skills at the City College of San Francisco. Following my studies, I received a BA in Latina Latino Studies and Latin American Studies from San Francisco State University, when I had the opportunity to volunteer with the Latino community in the San Francisco Bay Area. 


Prior to that, in Brazil, during my educational and professional life, after high school at Colégio Presbiteriano Mackenzie in São Paulo, I had the opportunity to graduate in Law from Universidade Bandeirante de São Paulo and participate in the development and completion of projects and behavioral research and several social projects in the education area.

Difference between Coaching and Therapy.

Coaching is all about you and your goals. People come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all have in common the desire to achieve more in their lives.


Whether you are a young adult wanting to start your first business, or an artist trying to make your mark in the art world, or a real estate agent looking to improve your sales, you will benefit from having a coach by your side to help you turn your personal projects into reality.


A common misconception is that coaching is the same as therapy, when in fact they are quite different.


Coaching is intended to help people achieve personal goals, such as better balance between personal and professional life.


Therapy, on the other hand, is intended to help people recover from emotional or psychological disorders, such as depression or anxiety.


Therefore, if you have any concerns or questions about your mental health, I strongly recommend that you seek professional advice from a licensed therapist.
