Environmental & Ethical Commitments
As a therapist and as an individual, I consider myself an ally in many struggles for a more just world for humans, animals, nature & earth.
As a therapist working on turtle island and walking an ecotherapy path, I do my best to both recognize and acknowledge my privilege as a white settler here in Mi’kma’ki. Endeavouring to question this privilege as well as to use it wisely. I hold a deep respect for the peoples, animal beings, cultures, knowledge & wisdom connected to this land.
As a practitioner I continue to seek support with this work through training, research, supervision and consultation. I continue to learn and grow in this role alongside my clients.
As a business, Interflections Counselling Therapy also strives to operate both ethically and as an ally. Below you will find some choices I make on the day to day to align my business with my ethos:
