Who We Are
Who We Are
Evergreen Therapeutics believes that to live a joyful and functional life we need to attend to our body, mind, and soul. Although pathology symptoms are often reduced through treatment, our focus is not on the pathology of individuals but rather emphasizes the importance of meeting one’s needs and establishing emotional safety.
We are committed to providing a secure environment free of judgment where you can feel safe to be yourself, explore your inner world, and develop an awareness of previous experiences, challenges, and interpersonal relationships. With mutual respect and positive communication, the client and counsellor can work collaboratively to build a trusting relationship.
As human beings, we inherently possess unique qualities and experience the world differently than one another. Although our issues are categorized under common labels, our experiences lay in the perception of the person. Through this lens of seeing each person as the expert of their own story, Evergreen Therapeutics takes a client-centered and humanistic approach to therapy.
We believe there is no one way to tackle life’s challenges or understand oneself. Evergreen Therapeutics encourages an integrative and strengths-based approach where clients can benefit from the many tools and interventions provided by a variety of modalities.

Francesca Lupo (She/Her), M.Ed., RP (Qualifying)
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), and I completed my Master of Education in Counselling Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Currently, I am becoming certified in Traumatic Stress Studies with the Trauma Research Foundation, as I hold a strong passion for working with trauma concerns and survivors.
I believe that therapy is not just about reducing pathology symptoms or understanding the meaning behind thoughts, emotions, or actions, but is also largely devoted to helping individuals live a more joyous and functional life. My hopes and values for Evergreen Therapeutics are to help create a place where people can find meaning in themselves and use that understanding to build awareness, increase emotion regulation and attunement, and promote joy, via the connection between their body, mind, and soul.
