How do we navigate change? As we’ve all learned in these past years, the ability to navigate change has been uncertain and very tough. But whether it’s a change in your mood, your physical health, your career, your family life and relationships, or struggling through challenges that have been out of your control, it can be a very bewildering, confusing and even scary time. As a therapist, my approach centres your safety and empowering you to uncover your inner abilities and strengths. My role is to walk beside you through the tough challenges and be a guide through – what might feel like – the wilderness of your own emotions.

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.

I became a therapist because, just like you, I am human and have had my fair share of battles. It took a long time for me to get to where I am today. I recognize that in moments of hopelessness, it is hard to find determination, that depression can be scary, that anxiety can be overwhelming, and that traumatic experiences can leave one feeling emotionally exhausted and drained out. I acknowledge the stigma associated with mental health and in going to therapy. For this reason, I know how crucial it is to provide therapy that is client-centered, empathetic, and unique to each person’s needs.

Welcome! My name is Samira and I offer a safe space where you can be heard and understood. I understand that seeking therapy may be difficult and quite intimidating at first. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to take that step in order to begin to understand your own story and start the healing process and journey. It definitely takes courage! Understanding this, I strive to provide a compassionate, safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental space for you to feel comfortable to unburden yourself when it comes to the most personal and intimate parts of your life – one where you can explore and better understand yourself.

Anxiety? Relationship Issues? Stress? Anger? Depression? PTSD? Do you feel stressed out, burnt out & overwhelmed because you overthink & suppress? Are you scared of confrontation & choose avoidance? Is the built-up anxiety, relationship issues, cultural/family beliefs, anger, identity issues, & PTSD causing chaos for you? How about trusting yourself? Has it turned into self-doubt & self-sabotage? Perhaps you are so hard on yourself that it seems very difficult to even notice how you feel! I get it; I have walked that same hard road too. I understand the emotional confusion, and for that reason, I hold a non-judgmental space for you.

Hello, and welcome. You may be interested in coming to therapy because you're feeling lonely, unsatisfied in your relationships, suffering from a difficult life event, or wondering if life can be better. There is no problem too big or too small to bring. I provide a space for you to be seen and be known. To say, and feel, what is difficult. To find what gives you hope. I seek to understand your unique experience and what may be preventing you from living your life more authentically. Together we look at ways you protect yourself and whether these ways are still serving you.

The relationship between therapist and client is a fundamental aspect to facilitating change, possibly more so than the theoretical background. When we begin a therapeutic relationship, I hope you will feel supported through a genuine connection, where you will feel safe to bring your story and all of you into the therapy hour. Together, we will work through issues, worries, crisis's, life events, or the challenges of long term conditions, as a team. We will work together to look for positive change, resolutions to emotional suffering, and perhaps acceptance.

However you are arriving at therapy, I welcome you. My work focuses on the way early relationships and experiences impact who we are now – in relationship with others, with ourselves, in the world. Do we feel safe? Do we know our needs and how to get them met? How are our protective strategies helping or hindering us? How might we deepen connection with others and ourselves? My work is also informed by my creative practice (music and writing), so I enjoy working with artists facing creative blocks, life/work balance challenges, career transitions and feelings of precariousness.

Does any of this sound familiar? You survived emotional neglect. You work hard and are independent. Sometimes, your drive has harmed relationships and partnerships. Perhaps your family members struggle with alcohol or addictions. You often feel isolated and "not enough", and you could use help from a person who understands these challenges. If you are Neurodivergent, in Recovery, or someone in, or considering gender transition, I have specific education + experience to support you (Rainbow Health Ontario provider). I am adopted, an ACE human in a loving marriage, and I volunteer and learn in multiple Harm Reduction communities.

Sex is a topic that continues to be associated with a lot of shame, yet it embodies elements of our identity, impacts our intimate relationships, and influences our physical, emotional and mental health. Empowering your sexuality and advocating for your sexual health and intimacy is what I strive for most! From low desire, to performance issues, kinks/fetishes, out of control sexual behaviour (sex addiction), sexual pain, sexual abuse/trauma, and identity confusion (amongst other sexual challenges), I am here to explore and assist you (and/or your partner) through these challenges and perplexities professionally and comfortably.
