I’m Mariana, a social worker and Reiki master.

Hi, I’m Mariana, I’m a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Reiki Master. My work starts from a place of kindness. My specialties include children and adolescents, parenting, and family conflict.

I strive to connect people with their abilities and strengths to increase self-awareness. By doing so, I foster positive and loving relationships within the family and with others. Connecting with families is a passion of mine. From in-home to virtual support, I’m available to you when you need support the most. 

Cross Cultural Approach

As a Brazilian-American who was raised bilingual and bicultural in both Brazil and the U.S., I love working with people from different countries and cultures. Given my background, I have a deeper understanding of cross-cultural issues. My fluency in English and Portuguese, as well as working knowledge of Spanish, enables me to connect with you and your family in a way that relieves the stress of language barriers.
