My Approach to Helping

Fernanda Poyant, LICSW, practicing with radical genuineness, mindfulness and evidence based elements. Focusing on Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Peripartum Disorders.

Each person is viewed as a unique individual,l and therefore not one approach can serve all. I base my practice on CBT, Narrative Therapy, Harm Reduction, Psychoanalysis, and radical genuineness. I believe the space created between therapist and client is what determines the progress and success of the helping relationship. I approach people with a trauma informed, decolonized and culturally aware lenses.
