There are likely times when you feel that you are running on empty and can’t catch your breath. When you feel like you’ve lost yourself and life is falling apart. Feeling stress, worry, disconnected and alone can all start to negatively impact our lives. You don't have to carry these feelings alone. My goal is to help you navigate these experiences and offer a space for new ideas. I want to help you begin to feel more like yourself, worry less and find balance in your life. Take your time finding a therapist that's a good fit for you! Follow me on Instagram @vanessa_therapy, view my website or Linkedin profile to learn more.
With over 15 years experience I've been fortunate to support folks with grief, anxiety, depression and sadness in many different settings such as hospitals, community mental health agencies and the education system. My clinical approach incorporates Cognitive Behaviourial Therapy (CBT), DBT, Narrative, Attachment-focused, and Solution-focused therapies.
How do you know if you're ready? If you're feeling stuck and alone, if you want a different perspective, or a deeper understanding of what's happening for you and your relationships...this is the right time. Trust that I will help you to feel safe and comfortable. Come as you are and know that you will be embraced with a warm heart and welcoming hands!
