Wenni is one of the best hands down. She always messages me between sessions to check on me and I truly feel like she is invested in my mental health. She is real with me, kind with her words, has taught me how to think differently about situations and thoughts that cower over me. She is absolutely amazing. Thank you Wenni for being more than just a counselor, but a true confidant and believer in who I am.

Wenona is so approachable! She offers a great mix of sympathy and "tough love." I LOVE this about her style. She isn't afraid to call what she sees or hears like it is. With my anxiety, I need that kind of counsel. Her assistance has been so helpful for me! Best counselor I have ever had!!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Wenny is, she is funny, kind, and respectful. Having her as a therapist has changed my life in so many ways.

I feel grateful that I found Wenona because she is very good at seeing the issues I need to work on and highlights them for me. Issues that I hadn’t been that conscious of. She then explains them and helps me to self examine. I feel like she isn’t afraid to dive straight into it. Like a loving but firm friend who really cares about improving my life and coping skills.

Written by L.A. on Oct 09, 2020 after counseling with Wenona for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Wenni is single-handedly the best counsellor I have ever had and I have tried many different types of therapy throughout the years. For the first time ever, I feel completely supported and validated by my counsellor. She’s great at giving tough love in the most optimistic and loving way. She is also hilarious! And always makes sure to leave our sessions off on a really positive/productive note. I never thought I’d actually get *excited* to talk to my counsellor and I have wenni to thank for that! She is absolutely incredible and anyone who talks to her is very lucky they got matched with such an amazing counsellor. I can hear her voice in my head when I’m having a wave of anxiety so I can tell the things she’s teaching me are really working. I’ve been able to work through my anxious thoughts wayyyy faster than before and my self esteem is gradually getting better with her help :) I feel blessed to have Wenni on my side throughout the trials and tribulations of life.

This being my first time in therapy, I‘m very glad to be paired with Wenni. I was nervous at first, but after our first video session, all my nerves went away. She is very easy to talk to and confide in!

Wenny Provides an welcoming atmosphere to really express your thoughts and concerns while also providing tools and advise to work out problems. I feel confident in my speaking and thought process while using the tools given.

Written by G.A. on Jul 30, 2020 after counseling with Wenona for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I know that finding a counselor is similar to creating any other sort of bond with a person and my biggest concern going into this was that I would be paired with someone I didn't feel comfortable talking to. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was matched with someone like Wenona. She is incredible at listening to anything and everything I have to say, she sends me helpful tips and worksheets to help me get through and work through anything I need, even when the conversation is serious she helps keep it light making it easier for me to express myself. It's even gotten to a point where sometimes our sessions are just friendly chats (which I never realize I need until I'm smack in the middle of them lol). I would 110% recommend her to anyone and everyone because sitting with her feels more like talking to a friend than it does talking to a counselor and I think that is so important because it gets me a whole lot more comfortable with the entire exchange of fears, anxieties, news etc. I would also like to mention that on top of our scheduled meetings, she makes a point of checking up on me between sessions (even thought I'm terrible at responding to texts), she is very quick to respond whenever I message her outside of our sessions, and she actually remembers everything, which really emphasizes the fact that she is invested in my well-being.

Wenni is such a good counselor. She has made me feel welcomed and accepted. She gave me great tools to use for my anxiety and has made my life easier with all her help. I would honestly be lost if it weren't for her help. She is non-judgemental and listens with empathy and really cares about you!
