Over the past ten years, I have tested my transformational method and have helped thousands of people to learn practical emotional and mental health tools to relieve stress and come back to their best.

But my life was not always like that. When I was a little girl, I was always treated as the little princess of the family. My father was successful, and he did everything he could to give us the best in life. My mom was a lovely woman. She was the glue of the family and always prepared surprises for me and my brother. We were a fun family, as a traditional Brazilian family surrounded by music, barbecue and happiness. And I always used to feel loved, rich, and cared for.

However, like a Walt Disney movie, my fairy tale had a terrible episode. 

When I was only five years old, my heart broke. I saw my father arrive home sick, without hair and with a big bandage on his head. I wondered what had happened, but I was too young to understand what was going on. I just knew that my father was sick and fragile, and I wanted my superhero back. Years later, I discovered that my father had a brain cancer. 

Thanks God, the brain tumour was benign, but it didn’t stop him from having crises of epilepsy and becoming very aggressive. My happy home suddenly became a sad place to live, with everyone too busy to be with me and with the years we lost our financial status, which caused me lots of shame and separation during my teenager period. 

Life was not easy, but as Oprah Winfrey always says, I could transform my wounds into wisdom. I wanted to heal my father, to discover a way to help him to come back to his best and also heal my heart.

When I discovered the art of meditation, I found my passion that drove me to help people's lives and change the world.

I know you also have your pain and I am here to help you to heal your past and come back to your best. You are not alone anymore. Just take a deep breath and relax because everything will be all right.



I am a passionate social entrepreneur, journalist and international life coach founder of Joyful Minds - online training specialized in meditation and mindfulness, based in behavioural cognitive and neuroscience . Everything to empower Youth with emotional and mental health to thrive in life. And more than that: to inspire them to bring their gifts to the world.

I love to travel and discover the world. I have double citizenship from Brazil and Portugal and nowadays I live in Sydney – Australia.

In the last two decades, I travelled around the world to find these answers: What am I doing here? What is my mission? What are my talents and gifts? What is my purpose in this life?

And because I had the courage to overcome my fears and follow my inner voice, I had the honour to study with the greatest humanitarian leaders in the world to find these answers.

I studied Meditation and Mindfulness with the humanitarian leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. I worked as volunteer of his foundation ‘The Art Of Living’ for five years and I also became part of his band, singing for thousands of people.

I also graduated in Yoga and
Meditation in 2011, with the Brazilian
spiritual teacher Marco Schultz.

Marco Schultz was also one of my great inspirations to start to compose songs with my harmonium and guitar. It was the beginning of flourishing the gifts of my soul.



I had the honor to participate: in Silent Retreats with the Zen Buddhist Coen Monk; in courses & Satsang with Prem Baba; in the conference with Dalai Lama in Brazil; and to have Deepak Chopra as my first spiritual teacher when I was teenager, thanks to his best seller book The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success.

Beside the meditation and mindfulness field, I also studied Quantum Physics with the famous Amit Goswami and Bio Energy with Dr Masaru Emoto. Both became famous worldwide with the movie What The Bleep Do We Know?

In 2014 I was introduced to the Oneness University from Amma & Bhagavan and I became official Deeksha Giver emanating the healing energy through my voice and songs.

Neuroscience was also part of my journey, having Dr Bruce Lipton and Dr Joe Dispenza, as my great masters in this field. I also worked for 3 years with Hoffman Institute after my first course in 2008, having Heloisa Capelas – the Director of Hoffman Institute in Brazil, as my first official life-coach, which I will always be extremely grateful.

Since January 2012, I am graduated as Professional and International Life & Executive Coach by the International Association of Coaching Institutes and SLAC. I also had the honor to have the American Icon Mary Morrisey as my personal Life-Coach.

The world renowned speaker, Rapid Transformational Therapy trainer and best-selling author, Marisa Peer, was also a great source of strength in my life inspiring me to feel that "I Am Enough" to bring my gifts to the world.


The billionaire Ray Dalio, one of the biggest influencers in the world gave me the confidence and belief in myself that I needed to make my dreams come true. His belief in myself helped me to be brave enough to share my gifts with the world and record my first musical album, that was produced by the genius Daniel Natoli and mixed by the icon mix engineer Michael Brauer, who received several Grammy Awards, including his work on two Albums of Coldplay – Parachutes and Viva la Vida.

I also had my models that guided me through my self-discovery journey, as Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, Bono Vox, Tony Robbins, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé. I always wanted to thrive and transform people’s lives like them.

Oprah's meditation practice is less about addressing anxiety and more about being still for a period of time to get in tune with your authentic self. While her meditation practice constantly evolves, she's written that she tries to consistently meditate for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening. Mar 12, 2018

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was the Indian guru who first met The Beatles in 1967. They became fascinated by his techniques of Transcendental Meditation, and in 1968 visited the Maharishi's spiritual training camp in Rishikesh, India.

I am passionate about teaching people to increase their self-esteem, self-confidence and self-awareness through Meditation and Mindfulness practices.

All the techniques I teach in my method Joyful Minds really help us to detach from stressful situations and focus on the moment rather than being lost in worries, fears and doubts.

Because I use the tools in my own life and in the life of thousands of students all over the world for so many years, I know it works. If we really practice the tools we will make them to become a stronger and positive habit in our lives.

So, it works, if we work. It’s just a matter to be committed to build the life you love and you will find the ability to remain centred and focused in your real design to become the best version of yourself.

It will allow you to thrive even in most challenging moments of your life.

I am so excited to share this self-education with you because it can change the perspective of your life forever, as transformed mine and the lives of thousands of students worldwide.
