Caring and Compassionate Healthcare Professionals

Our Therapists

Hasu provides online mental health and substance abuse counselling across Canada. Our therapists are registered with their professional governing body, background-checked and carefully vetted. They are caring and compassionate professionals who provide quality healthcare without judgement. Whatever challenge you may be facing, a Hasu therapist can help. Our network of therapists specialize in everything from stress, depression and anxiety to relationships and substance abuse.

Our therapists are looking forward to helping you find wellness and happiness in your life. Start feeling better today.

Many of our therapists are covered by major Canadian insurers and employee benefits plans. Simply double check your plan and submit your receipt for reimbursement!

Funding Available for Victims of Racism

Hasu eCounselling stands side-by-side with the Black community in fighting for equality and justice. We are proud to offer free online counselling for individuals who have been impacted by racism but do not have the means to seek support. If you feel you would benefit from this program, please email m.adams@hasubehaviouralhealth.ca for additional information.

Similar to the way we offer therapy for ‘anxiety’, ‘depression’ or ‘trauma’, we now have a ‘tag’ for ‘Anti-Black Discrimination Damage/Distress’. This is a working tag, as no Canadian therapy company has ever offered direct support to individuals for this topic. There is very little for the recipients of racist treatment navigating ongoing oppression so we want to address that gap - we encourage, invite and welcome feedback from those with lived experience.

Individuals seeking support from Hasu for ‘Anti-Black Discrimination Damage/Distress’ can expect to connect with a therapist who has lived experience and who will help them address/overcome the ongoing effects of racial trauma; this includes rebuilding identity, understanding effects to overall functioning, identifying and challenging unhelpful inherited cultural/relational/thought patterns, dealing with pain/stigma and managing difficult emotions like sorrow, powerlessness, rage and fear (plus, much more). If you feel you would benefit from such support but would struggle financially to pay for our services, please email m.adams@hasubehaviouralhealth.ca
