Registered Clinical Counsellor

Location: Online counselling available to those who live anywhere in British Columbia, by phone or video.


I’m Anna and I enjoy developing a strong rapport with clients and working in collaboration with them to achieve their goals, promote and improve their overall well-being and quality of life. My approach is flexible. Whether the client is feeling lost and overwhelmed, looking for personal growth or specific changes in their life, seeking further understanding of themselves, findings ways to manage and cope or to simply reflect, I will continue to check-in with them to make sure the sessions are meeting their needs.

Nicole Sedlak, RP (Qualifying)
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Location: Online psychotherapy available to those who live anywhere in Ontario, by phone or video.


I understand seeking support can be a difficult first step to make which is why I aim to create a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space where healing and change can begin to take place. I believe that within each person lies the wisdom that is needed to make meaningful change in their life – my aim is to help you find that wisdom and empower you to make the changes you want to see in your life. Whatever you’re experiencing, you’re not alone, and we can navigate it together. I will offer you a safe space to unload, process, and heal whatever is weighing you down. At the end of the day, everyone deserves to have someone who will listen to them – I will always be that someone for you.

If you are curious about therapy or wonder if we are a compatible match for your healing journey, please contact me for a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation.

Kelsey Santerre, RP (Qualifying)
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Location: Online psychotherapy available to those who live anywhere in Ontario, by phone or video.


Hi, I’m Kelsey. Prior to completing my Master’s in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, I trained as a yoga instructor, reiki practitioner, and completed a Master’s in Cognitive Psychology specializing in language and concept learning. I consider myself a lifelong practicing student of mindfulness, and a writer who enjoys poetry.

I believe that everyone deals with emotions in a different way. This is why I approach therapy through a multiple access point lens. Meaning our thoughts, emotions and body sensations can provide us with all kinds of information and we learn in our own ways. Life can get messy, but unweaving the knots doesn’t have to be something you do alone. I understand that it can take time to process these experiences and I’d like to flow at the speed that feels right for you. By incorporating various mindfulness skills, we will work together to unweave these knots that can occur in life.
