This program serves clients who do not have health insurance or whose health insurance provides inadequate mental health benefits. These clients also cannot afford current standard rates for therapy (between $120-200 a session).
We help clients through virtual, affordable care from a master’s level counselling student.
Since the beginning of Fancy Therapy Services, we have had the belief that therapy should be accessible for everyone. We have wanted to provide people an affordable option if they cannot afford full price or do not have insurance benefits. That is why we strive to maintain the affordable therapy program.

Congratulations on taking your initial step towards healing! Life can offer a variety of roadblocks and various challenges, learning to deal with these challenges may present itself with difficulty-and that is okay! I believe you have the capacity to unlearn, relearn, grow, heal and overcome. My approach to therapy is rooted in anti-oppressive, feminist, and trauma-informed practices. I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities in my practice to assist in your healing such as, Emotional-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Trauma-Focused Therapy (TF).
I am in the process of completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University and I am a student member with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I have experience working with individuals from all walks of life dealing with mental health challenges.

I believe we have a powerful and unique story inside of us that deserves to be shared, and that our history, background, and culture are significant parts of who we are. I have had the honour of learning about other people’s experiences for the past 10 years through my work and service as a Certified Life Coach, Reiki Master & Energy Healing Practitioner and Yoga Instructor. In these roles I have worked with and assisted children, adults, couples, and families as they navigate through life’s struggles. I feel blessed to be in this role where I can help people get “unstuck,” build hope within themselves or even find their purpose in life. My experience also involves helping individuals who are challenged with depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationship problems, grief, loss, identity, spirituality, and stress management. My approach to therapy is dependent on who my client is and what my client needs. I offer a non-judgmental, collaborative, humanistic style of therapy where my client is encouraged to share and explore. I am trained and comfortable in the following therapies: Solution Focused, Mindfulness, Narrative, Family Systems, Emotion-Focused, NLP, DBT, and CBT. I am presently in the process of completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I’m also a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with CRPO, and a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
Louise Cocchetto, Student Therapist
Life doesn’t always go the way we intended it to go, and just like you, I have had my share of experiences that made it hard to see a better future. Psychotherapy can help you see that you do not have to struggle with your issues alone. Through my training and my own experiences, I understand that although we may all experience anxiety or depression we all have unique life experiences. I understand the courage it takes to open up to someone, and I also understand the stigma around mental health struggles. So I want to remind you that I look upon you as a strong person for being here. When you become overwhelmed with negative feelings, I will remind you of the resilience you hold and the strengths you possess and have used throughout your life. I hold a Hons. Degree in Psychology from the University of Windsor, and I am currently a student in the Masters of Counselling Psychology program at Yorkville University. I have been married for twenty years and have two children. One is biological, and the other is adopted. I have been through many life experiences, many of which have challenged me. Through therapy, I have been able to overcome and eventually celebrate those times. As a therapist, my approach is client-centred, meaning that you are the expert in your life. I will use various therapy techniques in therapy that work for you and your needs, with the main focus being empathy, respect and understanding. I would be privileged to work with you to reach your goals.
