Marisa Kanas, R.P. (Qualifying), M.A.


We all have times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed.

Sometimes, our circumstances change suddenly when we

lose a loved one, decide to separate or divorce, change

careers, experience health challenges, or encounter other

events that make it difficult to manage our feelings and

behaviours, or sustain healthy relationships with those

closest to us. 


As someone who undertook a career change after working

for 15 years in the healthcare and education sector, I know

firsthand, what it is like to move through a major life

transition and manage life all at the same time. 


I enjoy working with people who are navigating such challenges, and provide a warm, genuine and compassionate space to process thoughts and feelings. I work from a client-focused perspective and depending on your needs, we may explore cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices. The relationship that you and I form is the foundation upon which we will work towards creating a greater sense of well-being. 


I enjoy working with people who are experiencing: 

  • Life Transitions

  • Decision Making Issues

  • Work-life Balance Issues

  • Grief and Loss (through death or a living loss)

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Illness 

  • Health Anxiety


I obtained my MA in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University in New Brunswick, and my undergraduate degree in honours psychology from Western University. Before becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in leadership roles at St. Joseph’s Hospice, London Health Sciences Centre, and the Ivey School of Business.
