Veronica Benz, MSW, RSW (Reg. Social Worker)

Social Worker

I am a Registered Social Worker, an excellent listener and a caring and compassionate mental health therapist with eight years of experience. I work from a client-centered, attachment, and trauma-informed lens to help clients navigate moments in life where they feel ill-equipped or overwhelmed, when they notice negative patterns repeating again and again, when they are struggling with conflict or communication in relationships, or when they feel like they cannot connect to themselves or achieve what they want to.

I am a skilled trauma therapist, helping clients to process recent or historical traumas and their impact on present-day life. I have a special interest in helping clients heal and move past the early-life experiences, losses throughout life, or occupational stressors that have unwittingly shaped their day-to-day life and relationships with family, friends and partners. I am a skilled trauma therapist, working to help clients process historical and recent traumas. I work with clients to help them understand their attachment and emotional needs throughout the lifespan, to be able to heal from the past and shape a future that feels healthy and bright.

I recognize that mental health difficulties manifest in countless ways and that each client’s needs and perspective are specific. I work collaboratively with clients to ensure the therapeutic process is tailored to them and is a meaningful and positive experience. I would be an excellent fit for clients new to therapy and those continuing their therapeutic journey.

I draw from numerous evidence-based therapeutic modalities, including Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) Skills, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
