Mission Statement

Welcome to Resonant Energy Therapy. My name is Lucy Nesbitt (she/they). My mission is to bring my own warm inner light to facilitate an authentic healing space to all those in need of me, predominantly women, nonbinary folks and those who identify as artists, in order to best support their empowerment and healthy wellbeing. In my practice, my priority is warm, judgment free, unconditional empathy. I ensure that our work together is co-collaborative, transparent and rooted in my clients’ ability to make empowered choice at all times.

 

As a counsellor, my process is inspired by creativity. I flow with my clients’ needs and meet them where they’re at by offering a wide variety of holistic, trauma informed modalities. My responsibility to my clients and practice is that I always show up anchored in my own authenticity and professionalism, as well as in my commitment to continued education, anti-oppression, diversity and awareness of the systems of oppression at play in the wellness community, and community as a whole.

Intention


​My intention in all my work is to come to the space and collaborate with you, meeting you wherever you’re at, and joining with you to discover the road forward towards ease and comfort in your life. I believe that you are the expert in your life and it is my job to offer a soft space for you to land while you are in your healing journey. My role is as your process companion. I am here with you, walking behind you, supporting you as you need me.

 

Together we will use our intuition, emotional capacity, curiosity and creativity to explore whatever is coming up in your life and find some tools to help you find the support you are seeking. No one is broken, no one needs fixing. We do not need to eliminate the bad in order to live a good life. What we can do in coaching and counselling is discover the authentic, resonant energy that lives within you and is seeking to be freed from trauma, conditioning and expectation so that you may emerge into your world, effervescent and free from barriers that may have been limiting you.

 

Western society may have endeavoured to strip us of our very human nature and freedom, but we can come together as a team to rekindle the flame burning with us, and others, by reclaiming our innate resonance in life. To care for ourselves is the first step in caring for those around us. Let us begin that journey together today.

My Background

Before embarking on my journey as a coach and counsellor, I trained as a professional orchestral musician. Through my time in school and auditioning, it became apparent to me that there was not adequate access to mental health professionals with specific experience in the performing arts who could help young musicians and artists such as myself. 

After dealing with my own mental health crises and burnout, I decided that it was time I did something about that lack of support.

This led me to Rhodes Wellness College where I completed my education as Professional Counsellor, Wellness Counsellor, Holistic Life Coach and Experiential Life Skills Workshop Facilitator. At this time, I am now pursuing credentialing and licensing, as well as hoping to continue my education in the direction of expressive arts and somatic therapy modalities. My experiences with my own mental health also led me to becoming a volunteer crisis responder in hopes that I may be there for others the way so many were there for me in my own journey. 

Now, I am thrilled to share my learnings and space with you.

Commitment to
Anti-Oppression

There is no space in the wellness community for a blind eye turned to the systems of oppression at play in our society. I work every day to remove the biases I have inherited in my upbringing. Access to therapy is, in and of itself, a privilege. The new age wellness community and traditional psychology fields have a history of appropriation, white washing, lack of diversity, as well as classism. These are standards by which I simply cannot operate. It is my hope to keep my rates at an accessible price, and know that I am always here and open to talk about ways we might be able to make things work.

 

For folks in the arts, 2SLGBTQAI+ community or those who are BIPOC or AAPI, please know you will be given precedence for the sliding scale program I offer, just let me know how I can support. Behind the scenes of my practice, I will be exploring my shortcomings in my own anti-oppression learning.

 

I myself am a queer identifying person and ally to others in the 2SLGBTQAI+ community. As such I feel very strongly about the need for representation, communication and genuine, authentic self work to unlearn bias and create a safe space for those around us. For this reason, I attend workshops, do my own research and reflection so that I can show up in a spirit that genuinely supports those around me.
