My approach to therapy is client centered, strength based and solution focused. As a professionally trained and experienced mental health practitioner, I have the tools and understanding to help you create the life you imagine and get a renewed sense of self.
I welcome any client who has taken the initiative to reach out and make attempts to do something differently, something better to change their lives. I enjoy meeting people, hearing their unique life experiences, helping them meet their goals, and collaborating with them in a manner that facilitates positive change and growth.

I’ve been with Dr. Cannady a couple of weeks now, and though it is still early, I feel very comfortable with her and am already benefitting from the advice she has given me so far. I like how organized and goal oriented she is. She’s a great listener and very kind!

Dr. Cannady is very kind and open in our sessions. She listens to what I have to say and relates it back to the world. We are breaking down my beliefs and reshaping them into new thoughts. I feel really comfortable in session with her, and I feel I can say anything.

Fulivia has been down to earth and neurtal with the stuff ive unloaded to her. Shes given me some of herself so that i can feel empathised with. I really apprechiate her friendly and motherly approach but keeping a good professional distance. ive told her things i cant even tell my mum because i can trust her to keep level about the experience and understand how it affects me. I don't have to worry about her being pitiful of me, nor do i have to worry about reciving empty sympathy because i know she really means it because of the life experiences she shares with me.

This is my first time trying therapy. I was so so nervous to start. Dr. Cannady found a way to relate to me, she showed interest in my career, she respects me, she is also respectable. 10/10 would recommend to anyone in a similar position wanting to try therapy or looking for a new therapist
