Akeiko Rawn, MNTCW

Narrative Therapist & Consultant

I work from a narrative framework which positions you as the expert in your own life. In separating the problem from the person a multiplicity of stories begin to emerge. I have worked alongside children and youth to outsmart the tactics of anxiety, and promote the unique skills of ADHD and provide respectful support to autistic students. I have also worked with children and youth who have experienced complex and recurring trauma to develop identities other than victim and journey through surviving to a new kind of living.
