Anna Nguyen, MA, RCC
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.

Vednidhi Teeruthroy, MSc, RP, RCC
Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Clinical Counsellor

Location: Virtual services available throughout Ontario and British Columbia.

Vednidhi Teeruthroy (Ved) is a Registered Psychotherapist (RP, College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario), Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC, British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors), Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT, Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy) and Certified Hypnotherapist (National Guild of Hypnotists).
His compassionate nature, and experience in working with people of diverse origins and all walks of life, allows him to be present for clients in sessions such that they feel naturally comfortable and safe, allowing them to open up and navigate through challenging emotions at a time of their lives where they feel uncertain. He is most familiar in working from a person-centered, trauma-informed, and culturally-sensitive lens using therapeutic approaches such as narrative therapy. He also puts emphasis in working from an inter-generational framework and is significantly influenced by Mark Wolynn’s work on inherited family trauma.
Nicole Sedlak
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Location: Online counseling 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.
