The heart of my approach to therapy is deep exploration, finding interconnectedness in the various aspects of yourself and your life situation. In other words, finding your inherent wholeness in what may seem like disparate parts. To do this, I take a relational approach. By this, I mean we’ll use the awareness of what’s happening between you and I as a way to make sense of what’s brought you to therapy. It’s a powerful approach for making meaningful, lasting changes. Your awareness will create new doors of possibility, allowing you to choose the best way forward for yourself. I have great respect for each person’s unique unfolding.

I enjoy adult clients of all ages. Couple therapy is a specialty; I have advanced training, and have taught couple therapy. Even in child issues, I find working with the parents may work best. Individuals who are committed to living more productively and fully and enhancing their relationships will find me supportive and encouraging. I have a particular passion for working with elderly clients who even in their 80s are interested in understanding / improving their lives. At the moment I am working with a woman in her mid-80s and helping another, 80-year old woman to get comfortable with her computer so that we can zoom.

Thank you for considering therapy at The Cope Clinic. The practice is based upon the belief that the emotional and behavioural issues that confound us can become understood through a guided exploration in a supportive and collaberative therapeutic alliance. My clinical experience of 40 years has been attained through work with youth offenders, court ordered psychological assessments, residential treatment for religious professionals and work in a private mental health and addiction centre. Having also run a private practice for 15 years, I am now reopening a private practice clinic in the Toronto Beaches area.

Our 20s and 30s are often met with increased pressure, that which is self-imposed or influenced by our environment. It is during these years that we can suffer from the “shoulds”, begin to realize that there is a disconnect between where we are and where we thought we would be, or draw unhelpful comparisons to those around us. For many, these are fundamental years associated with investment in relationships and the future. This stage can be vibrant, exciting, full of possibility AND at the exact same time can be uniquely challenging. More often than not, life will throw us an unexpected curve ball - sometimes several all at once.

Although no topics are off limits, many people see me for problems in relationship, grief and loss, personal growth and unresolved childhood and family issues. Often clients seek help when they are at a cross roads in their lives and need support and guidance on how to move through problems, overcome obstacles, and move in a direction that is in line with their own life compass.

I had been a medical doctor before I became a psychologist. I changed professions because I realized that our thoughts, feelings, and behavioural habits have a powerful effect on our health and happiness but their potential to aid healing is often neglected in medicine. I feel privileged to work with clients who are on the journey of recovery and self-growth during and after adversities. I work with clients who have sleep problems, fatigue, stress, low mood, depression, anxiety, panic, chronic worry, obsessive thinking, medical or non-medical trauma-related difficulties, post-concussion syndrome, medical illnesses, or chronic pain.

When feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed, finding meaning could be a key component to help us cope. Through slowing down and allowing - there is room to learn about emotions, relationships, engagement, boundaries, resilience, recovery, and accomplishments. My goal is to help you feel empowered throughout your journey, while integrating your personal goals and strengths into your everyday life. Whether it be regulating emotions, thoughts or behaviors, I am committed to practicing a compassionate and non-judgmental approach where you are the author of your story.

I work with adults from many backgrounds who may be experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, relationship conflict, grief, loss, abandonment, or disappointment. My clients are looking to build their self-awareness. My training is in Gestalt psychotherapy. This approach invites you to explore your patterns and beliefs, and how you relate to yourself and your environment. I do not "fix" problems – rather, I explore the feelings that come up for you whether they be fear, anger, disgust, sadness, joy, or any combination of these.

I work with clients who are undergoing any experience that might be called 'transformation.' Sometimes transformation is forced upon us by external events, and sometimes we are called to it from within. Either way, it can be a difficult process to navigate alone. My aim is to provide clients with a compassionate, empowering, and insight-evoking space in which they can process pain and grow into their truest self. I welcome clients from all walks of life who feel that they would benefit from a more embodied and imaginative approach to therapy.

Do your emotions sometimes feel big and hard to control? And despite your efforts to manage them, are they affecting your relationships and causing stress? Regulating our emotions and knowing exactly where to start can be difficult. You may be open and ready to work on yourself; or want someone to explore them with you; maybe you’re just looking for someone to listen. Either way, I can help. Whether it’s solving a specific problem, decreasing a particular symptom, or navigating through a difficult time, we can do it together. Let me walk by your side as you embark on this journey of self-care.

Reality can bite, hard. I believe people can learn to bite back - and learn to be nourished. The trouble is, we can develop patterns of relating and being in the world where we remain stuck, no matter how hard we try. With a lifetime of accumulated armour and coping strategies, some having become sources of stress rather than relief, we can come to feel alienated, alone with difficulties, without a sense of hope for something better. Coming out of conditioned isolation and into fruitful contact with others and the world can be tremendously uncomfortable and profoundly liberating. Therapy is one tool to help with that process.

Susan works with individuals from all walks of life who may embrace a range of mental health needs. She recognizes that each individual may need to seek therapy for a number of reasons, such as receiving support during tremendous transitions in life; to face and endure new challenges; or even to deal with the difficulties that one may encounter. Susan believes that every individual has the innate capacity to cope with the challenges that life offers, but it can be difficult to access these abilities from the experiences that each of us have had before.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Toronto?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Toronto specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
