“No matter how successful I am, I still feel like a failure. I worry that everyone will find out I’m an imposter, and my accomplishments were all flukes.” Sound familiar? I work with driven, smart, conscientious women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’ - feeling unworthy of your successes. Your inner critic can steal away so many moments of joy and make you lose sight of your true self. Ready to make a change? Therapy can create space for confidence, clarity, self-worth, and genuine fulfillment.

My potential clients may or may not have a clear sense of what brings them to therapy. They may be dealing with depression, anxiety, or addiction, among other things. They may be experiencing trouble in relationships, whether it be with family, friends, partners, coworkers, roommates, and others. They want to understand themselves and their relationships better. They are open to the non-linear nature of personal progress.

My approach is honed through years of clinical work with children and families. Through this developmental lens, I can help you bring context to your concerns, see unhelpful patterns, and change portions of the picture that don’t serve you so you can show up differently in small moments and in big ones.

It's important that you acknowledge yourself for taking the step of finding someone to provide guidance. In my thirty years of experience I've learned that a big part of the healing occurs as a by-product of the relationship between client and psychotherapist. When this relationship is grounded in safety and compassion, the relationship blossoms and healing occurs. My working style is client centered and collaborative. It invites self-inquiry--leading to a deeper understanding of issues and their root causes.

After 20 years of working with clients, what I usually hear on the first appointment is fear and self-doubt about one's own ability to get over one's difficulties. Lots of reasons are given to about why they think they can't change including: "I've been ill too long - nobody's been able to help me; how can you possibly help"?, "I have a chronic mental illness and I have been told that nobody can recover", "I have tried to use CBT before and it didn't work - nothing worked", "I'm worse than the other clients you have seen". I will tell you that all these statements are false beliefs. Clients who have said this still changed!

(WAITLIST CLOSED) Sometimes it's difficult to get unstuck from our emotions, but try to think of them as waves of an ocean—coming and going, rising and falling... Never permanent and always moving. Experiencing your emotions and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a true strength, not a weakness. Together, we can address personal difficulties, explore options, develop coping strategies, and identify strengths. Counselling and psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency, and self-empowerment, and it is tailored to each client's individual and unique needs. What works for one client may not work for another.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. For some reason, you're still doing what you're doing, even though it isn't helpful. While you know you need better coping strategies than food, dieting, exercise, alcohol, cocaine, or cannabis, challenging the way you're thinking hasn't worked. You might have seen a few therapists in the past or are even currently seeing someone for other reasons, but your problematic behaviours tend to go undiscussed - in part because you feel too guilty or ashamed to talk about them. Now you're ready to reclaim your life, though.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in Toronto can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Toronto or for a Toronto coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Toronto coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills therapists.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Toronto you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Toronto and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Toronto or family therapy in Toronto.
