Seeking Counselling

Seeking counselling is an act of courage, wisdom and strength! 

Whether you need guidance through a specific situation, want to change something about yourself or your relationships, wish to learn better coping skills, or need someone to listen when you're overwhelmed, I would be honoured to help!!

Veronica Fabian (BSW, MSW, RSW)

Veronica FabianHello and welcome!  Bienvenue et bonjour!   I am a bilingual (French-speaking) Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist with 25 + years of experience counselling teenagers (age 16 +), adults, couples, parents and families.  

I hold a Bachelor of Social Work from McGill University (1991) and a Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto (1995).   Additionally, I completed a Certificate Program in Family Therapy at The George Hull Centre in Toronto.  I am also certified to provide counselling for Childhood Emotional Neglect (drjonicewebb.com) and have training/experience in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and families, and Emotion Focused Therapy for individuals.

Since I value continuous learning and am strongly committed to the best interests of my clients, I frequently engage in: textbook and research journal readings, in person and online professionally accredited workshops, consultation with colleagues and supervisors, and psychotherapy with a Registered Psychologist for my own personal growth and development.

Over the past 25 + years I have had the priviledge of helping thousands of capable, courageous clients of different ages, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations and gender identities work through their emotional, psychological and relationship difficulties in order to lead happier, more rewarding lives.

Through attentive, non-judgemental listening I offer a safe, inclusive environment where teenagers (age 16 +), adults, couples and families can freely share and address their feelings, behaviours, concerns and goals.

My counselling services are provided in both English and French.  Daytime, evening and weekend appointments are available.  Counselling from a Christian perspective is also possible upon request.
