Vera Cheng (She/Her)

Registered Social Worker, BSW, MSW, RSW
As a 1.5-generation Chinese Canadian, who grew up in an Asian immigrant family household, it has shaped and informed my life and practice in many ways. Therapy can be a transformative and empowering experience. I will work with you to develop a deep personal awareness and support you on the path toward healing, learning and growing. Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you is essential. We'll be a good fit if you are motivated, self-reflective and ready to tackle the daunting task of “figuring it all out.”

Approach Description: I have over 15 years of professional experience providing non-judgemental and compassionate counselling. I support my clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief, caregiver burnout and intergenerational trauma. Also, I use an eclectic approach and draw from various therapeutic methods to meet each client's unique needs. Talk Therapy with Vera is deeply rooted in the "Healing Lens," with the anti-oppressive framework addressing anti-Asian racism through attachment, client-centred, self-compassionate and trauma-informed approaches. I engage with my clients collaboratively and empathically to improve their self-awareness and make positive, goal-directed life changes. I encourage you to read my blog on my website (talktherapywithvera.com) about my mental health and racism experiences. In addition, I offer a complimentary 15-minute telephone/video consultation to answer any questions you may have and to see if we might be a good fit together. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
