“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, professional women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’. 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 clients are from diverse backgrounds who have experienced traumatic events that are adversely impacting their personal sense of who they are, their relationships, both personal and professional. The clients are seeking to make sense of their lived experiences and recover their agency and power to live a wholesome life with dignity and respect. My clients usually have a history of intergenerational violence and come to therapy for resolving issues such as historic and current sexual violence, intimate relational violence, trafficking, trauma related to war and conflict, workplace violence, discrimination and harassment.

I would like to invite you into a non-judgmental, nurturing, and anti-oppressive space, where we can work together to address the challenges in your life. Sometimes life can bring hardship and unexpected events, which can produce negative feelings and emotions. Some of these challenges require less support to process and work through, while others may take longer and require more frequent support to overcome. As your therapist, my goal is to understand you, your needs, and guide you to cope with or overcome the difficulties interfering with your everyday life.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be very challenging. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to discuss/explore the issues and circumstances you are experiencing. By deepening your ability to be introspective and self-compassionate, we can explore the negative thinking patterns/habits that may be interfering with you making changes in your life. My style is warm, compassionate, empathetic, and collaborative, but also direct and solution-focused. I specialize in working with children/teens/young adults, and have experience engaging even the most reluctant young people to promote positive change.

Feeling truly heard and understood can be a great source of support when experiencing painful emotions, going through a difficult time, during a life transition, in the process of personal change or just feeling stuck in old patterns that are now impacting your life in some way. Sharing these feelings with a therapist can also be a changing experience, as the therapeutic relationship combined with various strategies have been shown to be an important predictor of positive change.

You may feel like things are spiraling, that so many things are out of your control, that you can’t seem to stay grounded, and eventually lose sight of who you are or who you want to be. You’re trying your best to somehow feel better, but keep coming up short. When a challenging event occurs in your life, it can take a toll on your well-being, productivity, and self-worth. It can be difficult to talk to your friends, family, or romantic partner about how you are feeling, and destructive patterns may start to take over. You don't have to suffer alone, and therapy can be the first step to feeling like yourself again.

Narrative Counsellors
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. West Toronto, Toronto Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in West Toronto, Toronto.
