A Bit About Me
Hi, I'm Camila!
There are many reasons to work with a therapist. Alone, we cannot lift a stone with just one finger- navigating through the ebbs and flows of life and relationships are no different. I’m here to lend you a hand.
I started my career working in primary health clinics providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families referred by their physicians for a wide range of concerns. It soon became apparent to me that healing and growth is relational, both in the therapeutic setting and outside in the world.
No matter what brings you to session or who comes to session with you, my approach is always genuine, collaborative yet directional. I support individuals unpack, process and cope with difficult thoughts, feelings and situations. I create a space for individual clients to explore their vulnerabilities and discover more about themselves. I support couples and families rejoice communication, regain understanding and re-establish structures. I create and maintain a space of respect and neutrality for couples and families to express themselves.
Outside of session, I spend time hiking and cycling in warmer months, reading, watching nature documentaries, listening to podcasts, going to comedy shows, exploring new places, experimenting with new recipes, and connecting with loved ones.
