Runa Reta (she/her)

" I have a pragmatic approach that looks at presenting issues that are getting in the way of being able to live more freely, and I work collaboratively with clients to identify ways of addressing these challenges in a direct and concrete way. At the same time, I understand that there are many stressors in marginalized people’s lives that cannot be controlled, and as such, I try to balance these lived realities with an exploration of ways that clients can thrive/survive despite trauma and injustice. I also try to understand challenges from a holistic perspective, invite questioning and de-centering of Western approaches to mental health and leave space for broader definitions and searches for meaning and well-being. Principles of compassion and radical self-love inform my work, as well as a commitment to trying to offer non-judgmental, culturally-sensitive spaces that can help clients feel safe to explore the many facets of their identity. "
