“I love walking alongside people during their most vulnerable times and being able to provide them with hope and practical strategies to navigate their journey in life.”
COLETTE BARRAS MSW RSW | THERAPIST IN MISSISSAUGA
When I meet with people they are treated with compassion. They are given support without judgement and leave feeling heard, cared for, and empowered.
I believe in offering the very best evidence-based support to my clients. Helping them develop a toolkit of strategies that enable them to take control of their lives.
Since 2002, I have consulted for NewLife Fertility Centre, offering both individual, couples and group counselling for those exploring fertility options.
I provide emotional support and education counselling for those considering IUI, IVF, egg/sperm donor, and surrogacy options.
This is my favourite area of counselling. I love working with teens aged 16 to young adults aged 25. I've been counselling this age group since 2000 and love it.
Whether it be depression, anxiety, LGBT issues, self-harm, bipolar disorder, psychosis, shizophrenia or just relational difficulties, I've worked with it all.
"Colette helped me unravel the chaos in my thoughts and feelings. She provided me with practical strategies that help me in my every day life to not just cope, but to thrive."
- J. Chambers
"I've been struggling with depression for ages to the point that it was ruining friendships and affecting my school work. Colette was so kind and helped me get my life on track. I looked forward to seeing her each week."
- M. Lui
"When we were told we needed fertility counselling, we thought it would be a waste of time. Boy were we wrong. The hour spent with Colette has made all the difference in the world in our fertility journey."
- S. De Laney
Having a good rapport with each other is so important to the success of our times together. I totally understand if you'd rather have a quick chat on the phone first before we commit to spending more time together.
