I am a Brazilian Speech and Language Therapist. I graduated from UNICAMP and did my Post-Graduation in USP, two of the best universities in São Paulo state, Brazil. I am now a member of the Speech and Hearing Association of Singapore (SHAS).
Before coming to Singapore, I worked in an University Hospital in Brazil and was exposed to a wide variety of challenges in a Paediatric Care, including cases of orofacial myofunctional disorder that include specific conditions or behaviors that can have a negative impact on oral postures and function (e.g. tongue thrusting, deviate swallowing, mouth breathing, orofacial muscle imbalance, etc). Prior to joining Treetop Therapy Centre, I worked in private paediatric clinical settings in Singapore working with a wide range of difficulties, in particular Autism Spectrum Disorder and language delays (both expressive and receptive).
I am intuitive and passionate about working with children. I am an interactive therapist who allows the child to enjoy the therapy. Learning in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere allows the child to develop independent learning skills that are fun and interactive. I am able to provide therapy in Portuguese and English.

“I discovered my passion and aptitude to work with children while doing my clinical placement as an undergraduate student. Since then, my purpose has been to make a meaningful difference in their lives.
In my view, each child is unique and play-based activities that tap into children’s profile are key. I enjoy creating a positive and rich environment for learning through strategies that stimulate children’s abilities, while also keeping them engaged and motivated. I also believe that providing support to parents and caretakers is essential for a successful intervention”.
