I exist to assist the Indigenous Peoples of Canada to achieve sovereignty through the development of coaching leadership skills. Substance use and lateral violence are mechanisms that continue to keep Indigenous Peoples oppressed. This is accomplished through gossip, backstabbing, shunning, and sabotage. We strive to build addiction recovery reliency to develop and enhance positive coping mechanisms to deal with life on life's terms.

Welcome! My approach to counselling is to create a meaningful connection and a safe space where you can engage in self exploration, free of judgement, through person centred, humanistic, and trauma-informed approaches. In a world of information overload, I try to slow it down and explore inner thoughts that don't always have the opportunity to express themselves, and find patterns along the way to help make sense of it all.

Wellnest is a progressive, BIPOC mental health space which provides counselling services in a safe, accessible and culturally responsive environment to optimize the individuals, couples and families in their personal, academic and overall well-being. We learned that the spaces in which we sought support did not always reflect our own identities, and from that experience stemmed our need to create change in our field of work. Our purpose is to provide you with a safe and compassionate environment as we work to help you explore your challenges, understand yourself and your mental health, and to help manage your life more effectively.

Hello, I am glad you are reading my profile and hope we can connect! My name is Natasha Roop (she/they), and I am a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive therapist. I am Splatsin First Nations and European and am working to help decolonize the field of counselling. Individuals who seek my counselling services want to take back their power and better understand themselves on a deeper level.

I strongly believe that we all have the capacity to heal and to move towards our preferred future. We often can't do this alone. Collaborating with you and attuning my practice to ways that work best for you, I offer a safe space for reflection and insight building. I have worked with a broad range of people over the years and bring with me a commitment to anti-oppressive practice and attention to the contexts that contribute to suffering and to healing. We are living in a time of immense stress and increased isolation and this takes a toll. Reaching out for support is an important act of wellness and I welcome your enquiry.

Having ancestry from the Mi’kmaq people of Newfoundland and the English people of Bath, I use the teachings of the medicine wheel as a foundation for my personal and professional life. I believe that making art can be a practice that supports physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. When we make art, we can experience our stories and our struggles in a new way. This can open the door for creating deeper connections with our bodies, with those around us and in our communities. My mission is to guide people in honouring their stories and reclaiming their connections in order to live more whole and meaningful lives.

Connecting with a counselor that can create a space that is safe, non judgemental, culturally responsive, and affirming can allow for a deeper exploration into our relationships with ourselves, others, and the environment. As a queer Indigenous person who works in the mental health field, I've had extensive experience decolonizing traditional therapeutic techniques to work for Indigenous individuals, families, youth, and communities. My goal is to build a relationship with you and develop a deep understanding of your unique identities and life experience to help support you on your journey and with your goals.

As humans, we get to experience the vastness and variety of life: the highs, the lows, and everything in between. At times, however, we can get stuck in the depths: feeling anxious, hopeless, overwhelmed. We can often feel depressed and doubt our capabilities or self-worth, listening to the harsh inner critic inside. If we have experienced something traumatic, we may struggle with sleeping, regulating our emotions, flashbacks, or experience dissociation and unwanted thoughts. No matter how far into the darkest depths you have been, there is always hope. If you just swim up a bit, a whole new world opens up to you.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Vancouver?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Vancouver specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
