More about Ricardo Sarango

Working from a client-centered approach, I incorporate solution focused strategies with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to facilitate growth in individuals by exploring practical skills in developing insight, self-awareness and creating effective change.

I am active in the field of mental health advocating for better awareness and access to resources by supporting individuals and families, speaking at conferences, sitting on councils, working with support groups and volunteering.
