More About Ricardo Sarango


Working from a client-centered approach, I incorporate solution focused strategies with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) 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.


Ricardo, what are some of your favourite quotes?

The development of a positive habit is a more worthwhile approach than the elimination of a bad behavior.

While we can’t control everything in our lives, we can find opportunities to control our reactions to the things we can’t control.
