Athena Ferraro currently has a waitlist for new clients.

About

My areas of focus & experience include: depression, anxiety, unhealthy coping behaviours (e.g. substance misuse, self-injury, excessive gaming or internet use), transitional life stages (e.g. pregnancy & postpartum, starting or finishing school, retiring), school or work stress, identity questions/self-discovery, and meaning-making & existential concerns.
My approach is down-to-earth, authentic, compassionate, and person-centered. I am deeply passionate about my work and I am committed to supporting my clients through their experiences. I utilize various therapeutic techniques, depending on what would be a good fit for you. These include: DBT, mindfulness, CBT, & solution-focused techniques.
Please call or email Bliss Counselling to book an appointment or to schedule a consultation.
