Hello! I’m Cremilda

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

We all face difficult times in our lives. Sometimes we all need a chance to talk about our concerns and issues in a safe environment to find resolutions.

As an immigrant woman from Brazil, I have experienced the painful stress of cultural adjustment. I recognize that change takes time, and it is a dynamic and ongoing process.

Like cultural adjustment, therapy is a process, a journey. It can be life-changing for you, just as it was for me.

If you are determined and committed to begin your work toward growth or healing, willing to follow through, and work hard to achieve your goals, I want to encourage you to put yourself as a priority and feel confident with your decision to start this journey.

I am grateful and passionate about helping people. I strive to create a compassionate and caring environment for you by listening attentively with care and interest and be actively involved in the therapeutic process.

I am a Bilingual (English/Portuguese) therapist. I enjoy working with immigrants, children, individuals, and families.

My Approach & Values

As a mental health provider, every year, I hear about New Year’s resolutions, such as improving physical health, following diets, and so on. Seldom, I hear about improving one’s mental health.

It is hard to take care of the physical body and fitness when we neglect our mental/emotional health.

I practice a holistic approach in my practice combining mental, physical, and spiritual health, which can help improve interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships.

Mental Health remains a taboo for many people in our society due to cultural values and/or the “stigma” attached to the subject. I want to raise my voice to end the misunderstanding about mental health and be a source of support not only for individuals, but our families, our community, and our nation.

As a Licensed Family Therapist, I am dedicated to helping families thrive. I aspire to be a “make-a-difference therapist” and provide an environment where you, your children, and your family will feel respected, connected and equipped to improve your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health as your relationship.

Let’s make your Mental Health one of your priorities!
