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.

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.
