A Team You Can Trust

A Team You Can Trust

We are your team if you are looking for authentic, empathetic, and respectful clinicians.

While connecting with the OCD Wellness team, you are met with authenticity and respect. We strive to create a comfortable and safe environment; as we know, OCD can be scary, and sharing your experience can be even scarier- but also powerful. OCD Wellness clinicians recognize you as the driver of your recovery. You are the expert of your experience and have the strength to take back your life from OCD. It is OCD Wellness’s role to educate you and guide you through evidence-based treatment with a hands-on approach to conquering OCD.

OCD Wellness team virtually serves Ontario, New Brunswick, and Quebec with in-person opportunities in the Simcoe County Area.


Meet April Vass

April has been working in the mental health field for 8+ years. Before specializing in OCD, April worked in local emergency departments and police detachments, supporting individuals in crisis. During this experience, the harmful stereotypes of OCD and the gap in evidence-based practices for OCD became evident to April. This awareness fueled April’s passion for
specializing in obsessive-compulsive disorder and Exposure and Response Prevention.
April is a well-versed clinician in OCD and a CTSA-Certified clinician in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD. April is active and present in her treatment approach and strives to teach individuals and families how to live well with OCD. April fosters an environment for individuals to become champions in their recovery journey. April is empathetic, authentic, and hilarious (she had us put that in). Jokes aside, April enjoys humour, which can be seen in sessions together in a professional manner.

In her free time, Fatema can explore nature and hiking trails, spend time with friends and family and attempt to bake a delicious cake.


Meet Triena

Triena holds a Master’s in Social Worker with honours from York University. Throughout her experience, she has learned that life is chaotic, and the one thing we truly have control over is how we respond.

Triena non-judgementally walks with people of all ages during life’s darkest moments when the path is not visible. Triena comes to OCD Wellness with a trauma-informed lens and a variety of mental health training, including but not limited to CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, and Family Systems. Triena has an extensive history working with families and children and is eager to utilize her knowledge of OCD and Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy to support the clients of OCD Wellness. Triena has been trained in Exposure and Response Prevention by Behavioural Exposure Training Inc.
