Get to know Clarinda. Co-Founder, Psychotherapist & Relationship Expert
Co-founder of Willow & Oak Integrated Holistic Treatment Centre, Clarinda Brandao brings an intuitive approach to her clients. For over five years she has worked with individuals and couples, helping her clients restore self awareness, regain confidence, and renew relationships within their lives and with themselves. A compassionate listener, she delves deep into the individual core to build a strong foundation for personal growth and meaningful connections. Becoming self-aware is an integral step in the healing process. Clarinda has an innate ability to bring clients out of their shell and into a safe space where they can begin learning about and mending themselves and their relationships - both romantically and platonically.
A psychotherapist and counselor, Clarinda is a graduate of the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy's intense three-year relational psychotherapy program and a member of The Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT). A relationship expert, Clarinda specializes in couples therapy, marriage counseling, and family counseling. Through a blend of professional and personal experience, she helps clients identify problem areas and provides new tools to communicate effectively while regaining healthy connections - not only with one another but also with themselves.
A passion for guiding others to improved self-acceptance, healthy relationships, and positive social functioning drives Clarinda, not only in her professional practice but in her daily life. A regular volunteer with families, groups, and individuals at numerous non-for-profit organizations, Clarinda is dedicated to helping her surrounding community.
Having a positive work-life balance is something Clarinda wholeheartedly believes in. Weekends and holidays are dedicated to her passion for photography, exploring the outdoors, and, when her schedule truly allows, international travel. #clarindabrandao #cofounder #willowandoak #relationshipexpert #psychotherapist #gettoknowme #anxiety #selfdiscovery #addictions #bodyimage #trauma #coupletherapist #support #mentalhealth #talktherapy
