About

I am committed to honouring the unique qualities of each individual and helping them explore their innate resources for well-being. Whether you are healing from a trauma, anxious about this stage in your life, or adapting to a changing world, we can work together to help you cultivate a more meaningful life and develop skills to navigate challenges. As both the Director and RCC at Thriving Roots Counselling Services, I support youth, couples, and families on their healing journeys, many who have been rediscovering their own gifts and resilience with my support.
Hakomi and Internal Family Systems, are mindfulness, somatic psychotherapies, which give me the tools to assist people in self discovery, to remember their strengths, process grief/suffering, and to be empowered to choose more nourishing experiences and relationships. Nature-based therapy helps clients resource, regulate and heal with nature as our ally.
I'd like to invite you into a deeply compassionate and nourishing space that is both gentle and grounded. Clients feel welcomed in my calm and supportive presence. I look forward to bringing curiousity and a mindful approach to your challenges and working together to remember your gifts and strengths so you can live the life you are longing for.

Nature Based Grief and Loss

Everyone experiences losses throughout their lives and the grief that surfaces during these challenging times. Being in a group to process and share your feelings and experiences can be helpful. Vanya uses her years of nature based practise to support this group to move through losses in natural ways and to create deeper awareness and connections between others and the natural world to bolster internal and external supports when grief arises.
