I am a Graduate student finalizing my master’s degree in Counselling Psychology at City University in Vancouver. 

Thank you for making the courageous step to seek therapy. Whether you are seeking counselling to get clarity, to make a change or to receive support, I would be honoured to walk alongside you on the path to self exploration. Using evidence-based treatment that takes everyone’s unique identity into account,

I welcome folks from all walks of life to connect with me.

I am passionate about supporting children (8+) and parents, adolescents, and adults with concerns related to OCD and anxiety. Dealing with intrusive thoughts and fears can make you feel stuck and prevent you from feeling at peace with yourself. I offer a safe environment to explore these fears and can teach the coping skills to face them. For children, I include elements of play therapy which can be a more accessible way of expression.

I also offer help to individuals who are dealing with bereavement, heartbreak, and/or depression. With a background in immigrant services, I have a broad experience working with immigrants and refugee populations. 

The main approaches that I utilize are:

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Mindfulness-Based Techniques

As a counsellor, I believe that acceptance of ourselves and others is the key to a happy and satisfying life. 

In addition to English, I am also fluent in Dutch.

Masha will be training under the direct supervision of Dr. Jennifer Campbell, Registered Psychologist and is specifically seeking clients wanting CBT/ERP/ACT treatment for OCD.
