Vanessa Hazelwood, M.A. RPQ

With nearly 10 years of experience in the mental health field in a variety of settings, I have had the pleasure of supporting, guiding and holding space for clients experiencing a broad range of concerns, including: stress, life transitions, loss, identity and self esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationship challenges, and all of the complexities in between.

Together, we build a warm, trusting therapeutic relationship, where you can have a safe, non-judgemental place to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I take a conversational and collaborative approach to the counselling process.

In our work together, I ensure to individualize the therapeutic approach for each client’s needs and goals, and I may draw from a variety of evidence-based approaches, including: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapies, or Integrative Therapy.

I bring a combination of professional experience, education, training and personal, lived experiences to my work with individuals and couples. Please reach out if you’d like learn more about how I can support you.
