My practice comes from a holistic, strength based, cultural humility, and trauma-informed care approach. My goal is to support and empower people in their healing journey.

In the last ten years, I have worked  alongside people with mental illness and substance use, people with anxiety and mood disorders and in situational crises.  I have also worked as a hospital social worker providing adjustment, grief and loss support to family, caregivers, and critical illness survivors.

I am honoured to work together to heal and grow as we explore your unique life story and experiences.

Areas of Focus:





Emotion Regulation

Cross-Cultural Issues


Education and Approach:

I am a registered social worker (RSW BSW) and a graduate student in the Masters of Social Work program at University of British Columbia (2024). I am doing my internship at Emotion Wise Counselling from September 2023-April 2024.

I have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.

More about Adriana:

I am originally from Brazil, so you can choose to talk to me in Portuguese or in English. When I am not writing papers or attending classes, I love to cuddle with my two Chihuahuas while watching Netflix or listening to music.
