A fundamental part of the therapy provided by Krista is to help you uncover and build on your strengths, propelling you towards your goals, visions and breakthroughs. She has strong skills in the treatment of depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relationship issues, ADHD and working with people who have been involved in abusive relationships. She works from the wisdom of her trauma-informed sensitivity, and values evidence-based, clinically proven approaches such as EMDR, CBT and Family Systems. This beautifully compliments her extensive experience with cultural, spiritual and relationship issues. Krista’s own process of deep listening impressed upon her the importance of being empathetic, compassionate, energetic, and curious. She works with people on an ongoing basis and is also available for last minute appointments through our virtual walk in clinic.
Immediately following graduating with an undergraduate degree in Social Development Studies from the University of Waterloo, Krista implemented her desire to facilitate positive change by founding a project for at-risk communities in Brazil. Her dream of pursuing a career in psychotherapy was born of witnessing the difficulties faced by the youth and families that her project was working to assist.
Krista, who has lived in Brazil for most of her life, is fluent in English and Portuguese.
Cheyenne has a BA in Psychology from Laurentian University, and a Masters of Education from Lakehead University, where she also taught courses on inclusive education and educational psychology as well as her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. In her post-graduate work, she has studied multicultural education and critical race theory, which fueled her passion for aiding marginalised individuals through education. She excels in helping people cope with ADHD, family relationships, anxiety, depression, diversity and inclusion issues, as well as many other areas. It Is wonderful to have her join our team at Carley Rawes!
Cheyenne’s inclusive, diverse and socially just approach represent the individual differences that each of you bring into the therapy room and life in general. Her philosophy and sensitivity stem from her own experiences of being black and Metis/Ojibwe, and her skills were acquired reshaping the communities in which she was raised, along with her years of academia, work with children and people with special needs. She is direct and analytical, and has a wonderful sense of humour.
Available to provide psychotherapy to adolescents and adults, you can book a regular appointment, or virtual walk in appointment. with Cheyenne here.
