At times, many of us contend with emotions and suffering that are overwhelmingly painful, disheartening and difficult to bear, often as a result of unique stressors and events. I work with adults, adolescents, families and step-families using Emotionally Focused Therapy, EMDR, interpersonal psychotherapy, and DBT/CBT within neuroscience and attachment frameworks. I encouraged clients to access inner strengths and free their capacity for growth. Whether you or a family member experience depression, anxiety, marital distress or difficulties with peers, you deserve support in a confidential, accepting, safe and caring environment.
Are you tired of struggling? Have you tried therapy before but found it didn't quite get you to where you wanted to be? Are you wanting to experience results more quickly? In addition to talk therapy, I offer a variety of cutting edge modalities that are based upon the latest research on the brain and nervous system. Rather than simply helping you to learn new strategies that hel you to cope better with your concerns, my goal is to work with your physiology and neurology so that a really wide range of concerns improve at the same time, without you having to work so hard to feel good. I am very experienced with online/phone work
Welcome to Meaningful Connections! I’m Yasmeen Rafiq (MSW, RSW), a registered social worker servicing the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). I have been practicing for the past ten years. As a mom of three kids and a partner in an interracial marriage, I have had my fair share of struggles on the therapist’s couch. I’m passionate about genuinely giving back to others and myself, and I actively work on diversity and inclusion in mental health.
If you struggle to communicate, build meaningful relationships, and/or with emotion regulation, you have come to the right place. Together, we can work through past or current trauma, and other difficult life events. Mental health is health. It is completely normal to struggle, and it is my goal to ensure that you have a safe and comfortable space to open up and allow yourself to be vulnerable.
If you are feeling unhappy in your relationship, or struggle with relationship/dating anxiety - my approach may be a fit for you. Relationships are rewarding but challenge us in complex ways. Attending Emotion-Focused Therapy can help to address painful emotions, identify patterns that keep you "stuck", and to gain awareness of your needs. EFT can help attain a deeper level of connection internally and with others. My therapeutic approach is ideal for you if your goal is to look at what may be holding you back in your close relationships. I often work with issues such as infidelity, marriage/parenting conflicts and separation.
An important part of healing is understanding the connection between mind and body and how it relates to experiences of anxiety, depression, and trauma. A fundamental component of recognizing your needs is to create an awareness of emotions. Our bodies signal us when there is discord, and through an experiential process, I focus on helping individuals make sense of their world. My work focuses on coping with difficult body sensations while also helping you begin to think and feel differently about your experiences, your emotions and ultimately yourself.
Passionate about supporting children and parents/caregivers in all parts of their journey, I am aware of the need for specialized counselling for those who are finding that journey to be not what they expected. For those experiencing infertility, NICU admissions, parenting a child with ongoing medical needs, giftedness and/or overexcitabilities, and when families experience grief and loss, parenting can be more stressful and difficult to navigate. I will work with you to recognize your strengths, help develop coping skills, and to be a safe space to process what you are experiencing.
