Nests are spaces where safety, well-being, and growth are cultivated.
The purpose behind our name is representative of the environment that we strive to foster: one of safety, resilience and nurturing.
We recognize that seeking therapy can at times feel uncomfortable. It takes courage to explore and address difficult experiences and emotions, and we strive to ensure that you always feel comfortable. Our purpose is to provide you with a safe and compassionate environment as we work to help you explore your challenges, understand yourself and your mental health, and to help manage your life more effectively.
Join us for information/psychoeducation sessions, yoga (for wellbeing, anxiety and depression), individual, couple or family psychotherapy sessions at our clinic!
We are centrally located in core downtown at 415 Yonge Street, minutes from the Eaton Center.
What motivated us to co-found WellNest?
As psychotherapists who have both worked and accessed support in the field, we often felt underrepresented personally and professionally. We learned that the spaces in which we sought support did not always reflect our own identities, and from that experience stemmed our need to create change in our field of work.
Over the past few years, we have worked together on our shared goal of creating a space of a racially diverse group of therapists with the objective of providing a range of support services, our focus is anti-oppressive, anti-racist, feminist, trauma-informed and LGBTTQ-alligned. Our services are also unique in that our psychotherapists are able to deliver support that is culturally, religiously and linguistically appropriate.
We hope that you -as we do- will find our team and space supportive of your wellness goals.
WellNest's co-founders, Zainib & Sarah
