Life can be difficult. It can be exhausting, challenging, unfair, and full of pain and loss. Sometimes we feel anxious, depressed, confused, stressed out and we don’t know how to handle it. Maybe you feel lost, at your wits-end, stuck and unsure how to carry on. Maybe you’re looking for a way forward. Maybe you’re hoping to uncover the strengths you already have. I use a non-judgemental, collaborative, person-centered approach that puts you in the driver’s seat. I am caring and authentic, and I strive to provide a space where you feel safe and comfortable.

We all want to be more balanced, more present, and to feel empowered as we move through this world. However, people often experience blockages such as depression and anxiety due to traumas and conscious or unconscious fears about their own worth, inner wisdom, and ability to pursue their own path. My purpose in working with you is to help you find meaning in your pain, heal, feel into your purpose, develop deep self love, find depth in your joy, manifest your highest good, and reflect the sparkling light of who you are back out into the world.

Taking this first step toward healing is the most courageous, yet intimidating and vulnerable experience one may ever take. I recognize this, and welcome you into a safe space with compassion, warmth and empathy. Over the last few years, I have worked with couples, families and individuals searching for hope in times of crisis. I will work collaboratively with you to process and explore the roots of your emotional distress and support you toward increasing resilience and self-awareness. I can also help you to navigate through feeling "stuck" and/or "lost" due to life transitions and traumatic experiences.

Sometimes we need support to ride the waves of life. Maybe what used to feel easy, becomes challenging. The patterns and behaviours that once served an important purpose, no longer fit. I offer a place where you can start to find your footing and explore what is happening in your life with collaboration and support.

Many of us have been discouraged from feeling what we are feeling. Told it's not polite to be angry, not "manly" to feel sad, being vulnerable is weak, and other falsehoods. I believe we are meant to feel a full range of emotion deeply and fully, and embrace both pleasure and pain so we can learn and grow. My approach to therapy is humanistic in nature, which is a mental health approach that emphasizes the importance of being your true self in order to lead your most fulfilling life. I invite you to unwind in a safe space, process your story, express your feelings, and make clear actionable plans for your health and wellness.

Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed? Do you have trouble coping with uncertainty or adjusting to change? Do you feel like no matter how much you do, it’s never enough? Do you struggle with unhealthy relationships? If you find yourself struggling with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, boundaries, or codependency, I believe my training and experience can help. It is possible to resolve the limiting patterns that hold us back. Healing is a complicated process but it doesn't have to be painful. Seeking therapy isn't selfish—and there’s no need to feel guilty about taking care of yourself.

We believe that as individuals, we are each searching for well-being and acceptance. For peace. We work with a philosophy that so much of what causes pain and distress in this world is connected to what goes on outside of the individual person. By taking this approach, finding peace and achieving well-being is not only about working on the self, but recognizing that society needs to change as well. We aim to work on both.

Sometimes, we may find ourselves facing life experiences which bring us suffering and we have not enough answers. We might feel strange, anxious, sad, worried with symptoms of emotional pain. On these moments, a therapist assistance would provide a safe, healthy environment to work on those issues. The therapy environment aims at allowing you the possibility to access to the root of difficulties rather than looking at exterior manifestations During our sessions, I will not judge either your past or present choices. My private practice includes services in Spanish (my mother tongue) providing brief and long-term treatment.

In this moment, you may be feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious or burned out by life's challenges or transitional chapters. I believe that healing is growth in the face of adversity; it is a journey of coming (back) into yourself with deep self compassion, and we all have insight into how to get there. Sometimes we just need a bit of support along the way; someone to hold (non judgemental space) and work alongside us to find solutions, develop coping strategies and build on our own skills and wisdom so that we are more emotionally resilient to life's challenges.

The clients I treat come to therapy for a variety of reasons: for support during a challenging time; to process the near or distant past; to find out who they are and what they want; in search of new ways to relate to others and themselves. Some come with specific patterns or issues to address, and some are following a general intuition that therapy could help. I welcome inquiries from individuals as well as from pairs (romantic or otherwise). I work well with a range of folks, including those feeling intense shame, those who are suffering but fear their problems don’t count, and/or those reckoning with various kinds of privilege.

I hope to draw on that hope with you, help you discover your existing resilience, strength, and ability to cope through the hard times and discomfort. I use a tailored approach for all people, because each individual is unique and deserves to be seen as such. Your feelings are valid and I can help you tap into them in a safe space where you will be heard and not judged.

Some are trying their best to manage difficult relationships. Others are wondering about their orientation or identity--gendered, sexual, ethnic. Others still are planning the next meaningful transition in their lives.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Toronto are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Toronto then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Toronto, or Child Psychologists in Toronto.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Toronto psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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.
