About Me

Hello and congratulations to the second step in taking care of you!

My hope and intention is to be of assistance to those who are open to change and healing. We all go through experiences that may leave residual hurts, lingering pain, confusion or even a need for re-discovery. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 14 years of experience and have an eclectic style in my approach to therapy. I work to help those gain insight, stimulate change and create new connections while being a witness and support throughout their journey.

My training specialties include Social Work, Psychology, Play Therapy, Trauma and Addictions. I have experience working with those who struggle with (but not limited to): various mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety & post traumatic stress, sexual violence, trauma, abuse, coping with life stressors, grief & loss, and relationship issues.

I have worked with individuals, families and couples, professionally and voluntarily, in providing various modalities of therapy facilitated on a local and international level. The variety of techniques I provide are as follows: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Play Therapy, Sandplay Therapy, Art Therapy, Faith-based Spirituality, Motivational Interviewing and the Gottman Level I method all which are directed by the needs and goals established by the client.

Take a step, jump and dive right into your own success in progress. Looking forward to being a part of your journey to wellness.

Written by J.U. on Sep 22, 2022 after therapy with Onessa for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and adhd

Onessa is the first therapist I’ve had who has been able to find the delicate balance between nurturing support and challenging my views. She never makes you feel rushed and I come out of every single session feeling like I’ve taken steps forwards.

Written by P.A. on Sep 20, 2022 after therapy with Onessa for 6 months on issues concerning relationship issues, grief, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

I do value professionalism, but perhaps even more when it's backed up with a feeling the therapist you're talking to genuinely care and actively listens in a way that makes you feel they got your best interest in mind. Onessa ticks all thease boxes and many more. Highly recommend her to anyone that feels the same.

After spending a few months in therapy with Onessa, I have nothing but good things to say about my experience. She made virtual therapy easy, tangible, and most importantly valuable. Truly incredible journey, and looking forward to continuing to put into practice the tools I was given.

I got extremely lucky being placed with an incredible therapist for my first go of talk therapy. Onessa has wonderful insight and intuition, and she is fantastically engaging and professional. My relationships and mental health are in a lot better shape since I began our weekly sessions.

Onessa has helped me immensely in understanding myself better. It was my first time ever being in therapy and she made it less intimidating than I thought it would be. Thank you for everything, Onessa.

Onessa is a thoughtful, caring and highly competent therapist. Not only does she listen well, but she also guides the session with thought provoking questions. She's allows a bit of her personality to show while remaining professional. Her calm tone and openness make her easy to talk to.

Onessa is a great listener. This is evidenced by her ability to effectively respond based on what is/has been said, rather than what may have been planned. She is easy to connect with...I highly recommend Onessa!

Onessa is patient, smart, and kind. She's helping me work through my experiences as a BIPOC in a predominantly white culture. I appreciate that she guides me towards positive thinking when I have some pessimistic thoughts. Talking to her is like talking to a friend and confidant. I highly recommend her!
