About Raising Families Therapy

At Raising Families Therapy, we believe that every family deserves compassionate, expert support to navigate the joys and challenges of life together. Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing space where individuals and families can grow, heal, and thrive.

Our Story

Raising Families Therapy was founded in 2017 by Jess VanderWier, a passionate psychotherapist who recognized a critical gap in care for children with complex behavioural issues and their families. As a new mom herself, Jess understood firsthand the challenges parents face when struggling with their own life and family issues.

Inspired by her experiences and driven by a desire to make a difference, Jess set out to create a therapy practice that would offer comprehensive support for the entire family. She understood that families are interconnected units, and that each member often needs support to create a happy, healthy home environment.

With this vision in mind, Jess began to grow a team of like-minded therapists who shared her commitment to a family-first approach. Together, they have been dedicated to helping families build stronger, more resilient relationships ever since.
