About

Growing up as an East Asian immigrant woman has shaped my life and informed my practice in many ways. Therapy can be a transformative and empowering experience. I will work with you to develop a deep personal awareness and support you on the path toward healing, learning and growing. It is essential to find a therapist that is a good fit for you. We’ll be a good fit if you are motivated, self-reflective and ready to tackle the daunting task of “figuring it all out.”
I have over 15 years of professional experience providing non-judgemental and compassionate counselling. I offer support for clients struggling with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief, caregiver burnout and trauma. I use an eclectic approach, drawing from various therapeutic methods to meet each client's unique needs.
I encourage you to read my blog on my website about my mental health journey and racism experiences. I offer a complimentary 15-minute telephone/video consultation to answer any questions you may have and to see if we might be a good fit together. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.

Vera Cheng's Groups

Accepting Who We Are (6 weeks virtual group)

Do you have ongoing conflicts with your parents, who are intrusive, demanding and critical? Accepting Who We Are is a 6-week online psycho-ed support group. You will learn about the different characteristics of critical and challenging parents, navigating the "not good enough" feelings and setting healthy boundaries. This group is for the Asian community. The group will start in January 2023, and intake assessment is mandatory. Book a complimentary 15 min consultation call with me to find out more.
