Welcome to My Therapy Practice

Empowering Your Journey Towards Wellness

A Personal Approach to Healing

Hi, I'm Colette Barras MSW RSW. In my practice, I blend various evidence-based therapies to help you regain control of your life. Whether you're facing fertility challenges, anxiety, trauma, or major life transitions, I'm here to walk alongside you on your journey to wellness.

Reproductive Counselling

I provide mental health support to individuals and couples undergoing fertility treatment to start or grow their families. When needed I provide the required counselling, assessments and reports for 3rd Party Donor and Surrogate arrangements, pre-IVF and Egg Freezing Counselling.

Emerging Adults

A delightful tale that uses the analogy of baking cookies to do just that. Step into an endearing story from a warm family kitchen to a magical chocolate chip factory!
