MEET ANDREA

Andrea Vera, B.Sc., M.Ed.

Registered Provisional Psychologist in Edmonton

Andrea Vera Edmonton Psychologist

Hello, I’m Andrea Vera, a Registered Provisional Psychologist in good standing with the College of Alberta Psychologists.

I obtained my Master of Education in Counselling Psychology at the University of Alberta in 2018, and also hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences. I have focused on individual counselling as well as workshops directed to children, adolescents, teachers, and parents on topics such as parenting and social skills.

I see every client as an expert in themselves with the potential to keep growing and achieving their personal goals at any stage of their life. Therefore, I am passionate about helping clients find their strength and potential, and work towards a healthier mental state. My focus is to find the best approach and tools based on each client’s needs in a safe and non-judgmental space, bringing empathy, compassion, and genuineness. As an immigrant from Peru, I also recognize and value the importance of what makes us who we are and the importance of where we come from. I am fluent in both English and Spanish.

I specialize in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, and life changes. I also enjoy helping individuals achieve higher self-esteem and  confidence as well as greater overall well-being, allowing you to reach your life goals.

When working with you, I may use tools from different therapeutic modalities such as: Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness.
