Crystal Van Den Bussche

Clinical Social Worker (MSW, RSW)

Regardless of the theoretical framework I’m drawing from, my general approach is that people don’t need to be fixed – we all need to be heard, seen, understood, and valued in all of our complexity. I aim to provide a space where people are free to be curious about their inner world, accept what is there, and to gently challenge themselves to grow. This is not about becoming some idealized version of themselves. It's about (re)introducing them to the compassionate, confident and calm person that’s always been there. My hope is that clients leave our time together with something intangible – a felt sense of knowing who they really are as they learn to come home to themselves.
