Therapeutic Approach
Candace Marshall MA CCC

My approach to counselling is deeply rooted in an off-shoot of Feminism, Relational-Cultural Therapy. As a Relational-Cultural therapist, I believe that clients hold the ‘key’ and, ultimately, know what is best for them.

By identifying the changes, you would like to make and understanding the myriad of factors that weave together to form the fabric of your life, you and I can work together and better identify what is not working, and, how to implement changes in a way that best works for you. By working collaboratively with you no matter your reasons and/or goals for counselling, our work together is always driven by you.

At Nexus, I will work with you within the context of a nonjudgmental, collaborative and healing therapeutic relationship to parse out and clearly see the interwoven links and connections that contribute to how you experience, perceive and interpret life͛s challenges, difficulties and obstacles.
