​​As human beings, our souls and minds are wired to take in information from our environment to ensure our survival.  But what happens when that information has been filled with a history of mistreatment, injustice or loss?

Not surprisingly, our concept-of-self begins to crystalize around false notions and a problematic "single-story" of fallibility, inadequacy, deficiency and unlovableness.

By infusing principles of social justice with traditional forms of therapy, Restorative Engagement Therapy explicitly dismantles the "single-story," replacing it with a complete and nuanced picture of who you are - restoring your dignity, voice, sense of justice, sense of wonder and soulfulness.​​​​  

In your search for the right type of support, I invite you to read through the information on this website.​​
