With fifteen years worth of experience within community mental health settings, Ratanak understands the importance of providing gentle, compassionate, and highly collaborative support in therapy to his clients

 

Ratanak's work in the field has shown him the importance that social justice plays in therapy work with diverse clients and how deeply healing these conversations can be for folks. Ratanak supports folks of all genders, sexual orientations and members of the LGBTQQIA2SA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersexed, asexual, two spirit and allied) communities. He also seeks to provide a safe and welcoming space to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) community members. He also works from a trauma-informed approach and perspective that values the importance of safety and trust in his work with his clients.

"The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere - in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion, and in ourselves. No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming"
