Natalia Castellanos

RCT-C

Trauma can affect our relationships and our sense of who we are, but we do not need to stay stuck in distress. Working to find a sense of meaning, reconnecting with the truth of our present moment, and untangling unhelpful narratives can help us reconnect with our authentic selves, making space for greater healing.

Natalia (she/her) works with a variety of individuals, and gravitates towards adults who want to address the impacts of trauma, oppression, grief and end of life. Together, you and her can build a space that allows you both to connect with the depth of your experience, offering you greater access to your emotional and embodied self.

Natalia works from a liberatory lens informed by queer and feminist theories, anti-racism, trauma-informed practices and community-based healing. She integrates client-centered, existential, body-based and cognitive modalities to support each person’s unique needs.

Natalia is a Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate (RCT-C) and a member of the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

She looks forward to hearing from you and working together!
