About me

My name is Ananda Moss-Byas and I am a licensed Psychotherapist with over 22 years experience. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, youth, guardians, groups and blended families. I have worked with individuals on a number of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting, relationship issues, and trauma all within a culturally sensitive and trauma informed framework.

While I am a relational practitioner, in my practice, I also utilize various modalities and interventions, such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Gestalt, Hypnotherapy, Culturally Informed Care, DBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Play Therapy, and Solution Focused, that I incorporate into my work with others based on individual needs. I enjoy helping to support and empower people while they find their way by finding their true authentic selves.

Written on Apr 21, 2022 after therapy with Ananda for 9 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Ananda has been instrumental in my pursuit to address my trauma, alcoholism and ADHD. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and offers numerous approaches to the multitude of concerns I’ve raised with her about my behaviour. I feel supported, understood and heard during our sessions. I’m incredibly grateful that I connected with her through BetterHelp.
