Rebecca Larson, RP (Registered Psychotherapist), MDiv, MA, PhD

Personal Statement

I have a profound belief in the resiliency of the human spirit. When difficulties feel overwhelming, it is sometimes hard to trust that it is possible to grow and change, and to heal. It is a privilege for me to accompany you in your journey towards wholeness for your life and relationships, and to help you imagine and live into new ways of living and being.
