Amanda Morazain 

Music Therapist  

Many of us feel stuck in our daily lives, not knowing exactly how to get the progress that we want. Depression, anxiety, and trauma can hold us back from where we deserve to be and can negatively affect our well-being and relationships. No two people are the same and it is my goal to help you recognize your own unique strengths, integrating a case-specific approach to create your unique therapy plan. I am here to offer mental health support in a non-judgemental, friendly, and compassionate space.

I am currently a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and have completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology through UBCO. As I complete my practicum for my Masters in Counselling Psychology I will be guided by an accredited supervisor..
