If you’ve found your way here, it means you’re ready to begin a journey – one that may have its share of ups, downs, and unexpected detours. But you’re not alone. My name is Vanessa and I’m here to walk alongside you.

On my path to becoming a therapist, I worked in mental health crisis response services, where I had the privilege of connecting with individuals in their most vulnerable moments. In those moments, I learned that behind every struggle lies a story of vulnerability, fears, worries, aspirations, and resilience. I recognized that we all face challenges that can feel hopeless at times and this strengthened my desire to work with individuals in need of support to navigate the complexities of their stories. 

Whether you’re struggling with anxiety, stress, navigating a difficult life transition, or seeking support for another challenge, my goal in our sessions is to create a safe and nurturing space where you can share your story, explore your emotions, overcome challenges, and create positive change in your life. Together, we will navigate your challenges with compassion, understanding, and collaboration. I will draw from a range of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused, narrative, and humanistic therapies, tailoring our sessions to find the approach that best suits your unique needs and preferences.

If you’re ready to take the next step towards healing, I encourage you to reach out to schedule an appointment. Thank you for considering me as a partner in your journey towards a happier, healthier life. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you.


I am currently a master’s level MA in Counselling Psychology practicum student and am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). As part of my ongoing psychotherapy training, I receive regular supervision from a Registered Psychotherapist, which ensures I provide the best possible support to all my clients.

Please note that in many cases, Practicum Students are assigned to clients based on their areas of expertise, availability for appointments, and other factors deemed important by the client (i.e., age, gender, etc.). These decisions will be made at the discretion of Mindful Maelstrom Wellness Clinic, which is my practicum site.
