Description

Hello, I'm Carissa, a trauma therapist specializing in depression and anxiety, neurodiversity (ADHD), perinatal and postpartum mental health and family/marriage counselling.

My approach is relationship based, I know therapy can be overwhelming and scary and I want to make this experience meaningful for you. Our work together starts with a trusting relationship. 

My hope for you in this season is that you find a therapist you vibe well with, you have to be comfortable with the person you are sharing a part of your life with. Feel free to reach out for a free consult!
