(She/Her) Hi my name is Larissa, and I am happy to have you visiting my Affordable Therapy Network page.
I enjoy providing therapy at an affordable rate for those experiencing challenges around past traumas, anxiety, relationship issues, sexuality, and stress/worry.
With my degree in Sexuality Studies, I work from a lens that considers the importance of intersectionality and the necessity to provide and work from an anti-oppressive and multi-culturally literate framework. I hold strong importance to the power of the client-counsellor relationship and offer a non-judgmental space so you can may feel comfortable exploring challenges in a supported way.
The approaches I utilize in sessions are Person-Centered, Narrative, and Solution-Focused, with tools and techniques implemented from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy if applicable. As well, I work to implement a Trauma-informed lens so as to be as comprehensive as possible when working to understand your experiences.
Healing happens when we can be authentically ourselves and are invited to be as such in space with another person. Allow me to provide this space and environment for you so that you may see the possibilities you are capable of achieving within yourself.
