About

Successful psychotherapy requires close cooperation between a client seeking change, and an experienced therapist/coach to facilitate that change. I work with individuals, couples, families and expatriates in the areas of trauma, depression, anxiety and chemical dependency. I offer personalized treatment approaches from the fields of clinical counselling, organizational and occupational psychology as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. As a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist, I also encourage lifestyle adjustments as part of a holistic treatment designed to help clients cope, and continue onto their path of recovery.
I am a trained mediator, specializing in Conflict Resolution/Alternative Dispute Resolution. I mediate family disputes specializing in helping couples in a non adversarial environment. I also support individuals and organizations in their approach to cross-cultural conflict resolution, as a result of my years working internationally.
Profound understanding of cross cultural issues, having lived and worked in India, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, Greece, and The Netherlands. As a knowledgeable and empathetic resource, provide guidance to expatriate families and new immigrants in adapting to work and life in Canada. GTA Communities served: Toronto, Ajax-Pickering, Whitby, Oshawa Mississauga,

Jotsna Saraf-Uiterlinden's Groups

GTA Counselling

We believe that clients ultimately are the only people with firsthand knowledge of their own lives and motives. However, they may at times have difficulty in healing issues of past. It is a counsellor's role to help facilitate the healing process. We use a variety of approaches to assist our clients to resolve issues by finding, emphasizing and employing their core strengths. We focus on what clients want to achieve for their future through therapy rather than on the past problem(s) that made them seek help. This approach emphasizes the positive opportunities for our clients in the present and future.
