Hi! I'm Lexi Baretta
I'm a Master of Counselling student completing my practicum at Mindbuffs.
Our Master of Counselling students are currently completing their graduate degrees. At Mindbuffs, our students offer affordable therapy to individuals, teams, and small groups. During their practicum, they are under the supervision of a Registered Psychologist at Mindbuffs so you get two brains working together instead of one!

Get to know me
I have grown up playing competitive sports and have been involved in musical theatre related performance for the majority of my life. Throughout my experiences, I have an understanding on how mental health can greatly impact our sport and performance, and how sport and performance can impact our mental health.
My experiences have impacted the athlete and person I am today, but I could not have done it without the support systems I had. I have extreme gratitude for my supports during these experiences and I strive in being able to be that for someone else during their sport and performance journey. I believe that if we take care of our mental health, live healthy, and ask for support, we can reach our potential!
Within my education, personal experiences, and abilities I have developed while seeing psychologists, they have helped me develop the skills needed in setting goals, trusting in my potential, and instilling a confidence in reaching those goals! There are so many different aspects to sport and performance, which is beautiful, as each person will have their own unique experiences where they can grow and learn about their potential! By celebrating and using your skills, values and strengths, we will guide you towards seeing your full potential in a safe and accepting space! One of my favourite quotes is "if your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it,” so let’s swim out to your ship together!
