About Me

When you decide to participate in therapy, you begin the path of self-discovery, creating more room to live your life to its fullest potential, and I would be honored to walk with you on this journey. In collaboration, we discuss and discover what is keeping you from being who and where you want to be, and we then uncover solutions that can make those changes happen.

I have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, and trauma, and my goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, and non-judgemental environment in which we can work together. I believe in meeting you where you are at with respect, compassion and understanding.

My approach is strength-based, goal oriented, and solution focused. I have additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy as well.

Bella is wonderful. I couldn't ask for a better therapist. She listens thoughtfully and responds respectfully. She's like a great friend with great advice. I could go on and on but I think that sums it up perfectly.

Bella is kind and she listens to me when I am feeling down. I am struggling with so much stuff right now and I don't have anyone that understands me in the ways that she does. Bella gets me.

I hate writing reviews but when really well deserved I feel I should make the extra effort. Bella was great to talk to. She was not judgy or snobbish. She helped me see things in a different way way that really helped, without being pushy or prescriptive like a nurse or doctor. Recommend her highly.

I have had other therapists before and feel Bella is a much better fit for me and my needs. I always come away feeling more confident in myself and my ability to face the challenges that brought me to therapy after chatting with Bella.

Bella has excellent listening skills. She never puts any sort of pressure on me telling her anything that I don’t feel ready, which I genuinely appreciate. Despite not knowing all of the details she still tries providing suggestions and resources. There hasn’t ever been any kind of judgement. Our sessions are very special to me and I always look forward to them as well as to her response. Talking to Bella feels like chatting with a dear friend, who most of the time knows me much better than I do myself. Thank you Bella!

From day one, I immediately connected with Dr. Oshry. She is amazing and truly cares about her patients. She listened, she helped me rationalize, she guided me, and she showed me the light when I needed to guide my self. I was able to get through emotions issues so much faster than dealing with them on my own. I am so thankful and grateful for my time with her and our experience together.

I've been working with Bella for a couple of months now. She is very responsive and supportive. She regularly checks in and seems genuinely concerned with my wellbeing. She offers opportunities to process without me feeling judged. I really appreciate her help.

Written by B.R. on Nov 27, 2017 after counseling with Bella for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and lgbt

I had an excellent relationship with Bella. No judgement at all, questions that made me reflect a lot on myself and helped me progress on my journey.

Written by J.A. on Nov 18, 2017 after counseling with Bella for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, and eating

Bella was super kind, patient and positive throughout the counselling process.
She'd reach out when I wouldn't reply just to check on me, replied timely and would gently nudge me in the right direction, never forcing her opinion on me.

I wholeheartedly recommend Bella to anyone struggling with grief, eating disorders, anxiety and depression.

Written by C.L. on Oct 09, 2017 after counseling with Bella for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, grief, and self esteem

Bella's not only been kind and super friendly, she's amazing at her job. She encourages me to come out of my comfort zone but never forces me to do things I'm not comfortable with, she's understanding and supportive and my family has pointed out a noticeable difference in my demeanour since I've started working with her. I feel good for the first time in a long time, like I have some level of control over the way I react to the way I feel even if I can't always control the way I feel. Thank you so much, Bella and I look forward to our next session.

Bella Oshry's approach is warm and friendly making her easy to have confidence in. She balances your current concerns with progress checks to keep a healthy doctor patient relationship. I feel that I am a part of my progress in therapy sessions while still knowing that I'm being guided by an expert. I am very happy with my experience with Bella Oshry as my counselor.

Written by J.U. on Jun 11, 2017 after counseling with Bella for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, self esteem, and career

I've been talked to Bella for 2 months. I felt I change my way to think. The very first step of solving a problem is to know what the problem is. For facing the negative feelings, Bella lead me to accept the feeling first, name the feeling and then ask myself why do I feel that. We can't control the negative feelings keep coming up, but how to face them is more important. I am still learning. I am grateful to have met Bella at BetterHelp :)

Written by C.L. on Jun 04, 2017 after counseling with Bella for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

For the first time, I truly felt like I connected with a therapist. Because with this app there are only words. No accidental thought processes from seeing me in person or hearing the words from my mouth. With all the other stuff stripped away there is only what I say when I speak with her. I purposely try to speak with eloquence and detail and she herself has no issue with asking me to elaborate more when needed. She asks questions that do make me sit back and think about situations and also helps me to look st my perceptions. She is truly amazing and I'm so grateful to have been matched to her.
