A Bit About Me
Hi. I'm Karla Rivera!
I'm a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). More specifically, I am someone who supports and nourishes the fire of transformation and change in people's lives and relationships.
The essence of my therapeutic approach is rooted in creating a space where you feel safe, relaxed, and comfortable to be yourself. Together we can take a journey where we spend time with your wounds and what hurts, where we honour your challenges and hardships while also growing and investing in your healing, pleasure, and joy.
I bring over 12 years of experience in the health and wellness industry. My journey began with yoga, dance, and other forms of movement. Working with people to experience and explore what wellness means to them is a core value of my therapeutic work. By taking a holistic therapeutic approach that incorporates your mind, body, and spirit we can explore your goals and needs from various aspects of who you are.
Offering therapy within an anti-oppressive and culturally sensitive framework that is guided by allyship, trust and humility is foundational to the therapeutic space I will hold for you. Our wellness and mental health are impacted and shaped by our environments, by addressing these realities we can begin the process of healing from within.
You have what it takes to make both big and small changes in your life. When you are ready to do the work, you will discover parts of yourself that bring you into deeper connection with yourself and your life. The process of therapy will support you in growing and healing at your pace, on your time.
I look forward to meeting with you soon, contact me today to book your first session.
