“I've rarely experienced a 'training' program that so effectively combines rigorous methodology with generous heart. I now have a living compendium of precise, relevant practices.”
“Working with Joanne and Laura has been transformational at many levels of my life. Through their Integral Coaching® training, I have come to understand what “being human” means.”
“Integral Coaching Canada provides what we believe is the most complete and comprehensive coaching program available. ”
"Every day of my life is learning and growing experience, specially those challenging days. No matter what comes in my path, I am always drawn to the teachings that underlay every experience. I've observed myself closely to find out what brings me alive and without a doubt, it is interacting with people who are curious about improving themselves. This reflects my own passion for personal growth."
Through out my life time I have experienced discrimination against women, revolution, war, loss of loved ones, cultural shock, language barrier, leaving behind everything and everyone to start a new life at young age, illnesses and depression, going back to school and starting a new career and more…
Dealing with my challenges became the beginning of a self actualization process within me. I had to melt and crystallize again with every experience, to be able to live my life fully again. All the while I had to suffer the challenges of being away from family and my home. What better opportunity than that to actually rebuild myself and my beliefs to match my new way of being.
I have always had a strong craving to help humanity, in any way possible. This has always been the force within me. So through out my life I have found ways to fulfill this craving through emotional, mental, spiritual or physical support of young orphan children, school age children, sick people, elderly, new immigrants, abused and battered women and communities in need of help.
I have lived in India for 5 years. During my stay in India I often visited local orphanages to spend my spare time with the orphans confined there. There was nothing more satisfying to me than seeing the shine in eyes of those children as a result of my time with them.
"As I help heal human kind I heal my life."
I have written and helped publish articles for news letters, web sites and co-authored a book by the famous author "Louise Hay", to support communities at large. To be better at service, I continually seek new ideas and strive to learn and advance my thoughts and actions. Every time, I stretch more than I have ever stretched.
As a Certified Integral Coach™ I have been working with clients of many different backgrounds since 2010. There is no experience more fulfilling, than watching my client's mind and spirit, stretching to a new dimension and capacity.
Integral Coaching® is the fulcrum on which I rest the purpose of my life: to support individuals and organizations in their developmental journey, towards more performance, more consciousness and a healthier living. I have worked in corporate environments for over 20 years, in Brazil and abroad, in management and business development roles, building on my engineering and MBA degrees. I have been working with human development since 2013, as a coach to individuals, teams, and organizations.
I would love to share part of the journey with you and help you achieve your cherished goals.

I see the same phenomenon everywhere I look. Our most trusted and important institutions – in business, healthcare, government, philanthropy – are struggling. They're confronted with the fact that the scale and bureaucracy that once created growth and stability have now become liabilities in an era of constant change. I contend that people, teams and organisations everywhere need to upgrade their organisational operating system and adopt new principles of working. Principles that prioritise next level thinking, organisational agility, collaboration, engagement, diversity and transparency.
I work at the intersection of people, culture, technology and the future of work, crafting usable and scalable solutions to emerging and longstanding organisational challenges.
