**NOW TAKING NEW VIRTUAL CLIENTS** Greetings and welcome to a world where you can be the captain of your own sail boat and steer it in the direction of your dreams, despite the direction of the winds you may experience! My name is Mary Badalian, a Registered Social Worker for over 7 years, and I am pleased and honoured that you have decided to take the first step in starting your healing story and self-love journey with me. I have a particular interest in the person centred and holistic approaches to therapy, while looking within to find your own strengths and available resources.
Hello, I offer my help, if you have anxiety or depression, relational problems and many other issues. I offer confidential, non-judgmental environment and my warm, understanding and empathetic personality so that we can work creatively together at solving your problems. Please see my website for more info about my approach and me: www.katyatherapy.com
If you had one or more disturbing experiences that are life limiting in some way, or if you have been struggling with unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviours, I apply cutting edge neuroscience approaches so you can see results, in a non-judgemental, compassionate space. I run a group practice with several amazing therapists, skilled in a variety of areas - check out our website. Utilizing Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) we gently reframe and eliminate the emotional charge associated with the past event. Using an anti-oppressive systems-lens, I am highly motivated to help clients get unstuck, to experience more peace in their lives.

We all carry multiple stories about our selves, our lives, and our experiences. There are parts in our stories that are sometimes hidden from our awareness. It is in the calm noticing, re-discovery, and re-telling of our stories that we can find and connect with parts of ourselves that may need healing, and also parts of ourselves that are insightful, strong, and brilliant even in the midst of hardship and darkness. Through facilitating, witnessing, and holding space together, we can engage in our personal work of healing. I look forward to connecting with you.
My clients are interested in achieving goals through insight creation. Together we can work through themes of family of origin, interpersonal relationships, attachment, emotion regulation, gender- and sexuality-related stress, and moreover, the underlying roots to current, stressful realities.
*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* My focus when meeting with individuals is to provide a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment, while also engaging in insightful and compassionate conversations to help individuals make meaningful changes in their lives. We can all benefit from learning new skills/tools, and whether it is developing healthier coping strategies to deal with intense emotions and distressing thoughts, or develop more fulfilling interpersonal relationships, I would love to offer a safe space where we can talk about challenges you may be experiencing and to work on your goals together.
Having worked in many different fields of Psychotherapy, I’ve developed an appreciation for holistic approaches to well-being. Painful events from our past affect our experience of the present and what we can imagine for our future. It’s not easy to break free from the patterns, beliefs, and anxieties that have held you back. My goal is to help you get unstuck by gaining new insights, developing new coping skills, and to ultimately build resilience.

Everyone struggles with certain things at different times in their lives. Mental wellness is a journey, not a destination and we are all at different points along the path. Sometimes, we need help guiding our steps and knowing how best to keep going. My ideal client may be struggling with issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma or personality disorders. Generally, they realize that things in their life are just not working and they want to learn new ways of behaving, thinking and relating to themselves and others to make lasting changes. My practice with clients is collaborative and supportive.
Do you have anxiety or conflicting feelings about touch? Do you experience chronic stress? Talking about problems is certainly important, and sometimes words are not enough. Science says we need 8-12 hugs per day for optimal health and many experts have observed that "trauma lives in the body", so you could be triggered by the very thing you need for your healing and well-being. By combining talk and therapeutic touch, my integrated experiential coaching provides a safe space for you to "unpack" and process what's been haunting you, to help you to recover so you can redirect that energy toward living a happier, more satisfying life.
**ACCEPTING CLIENTS** Maybe you've done this before or this is your first time looking for support. You've shown tremendous courage for taking the first step to create change and we want to help you build skills to achieve your life's goals. It can get exhausting and overwhelming dealing with life's stressors without having effective and healthy coping skills. Whether it's managing your levels of stress/anxiety/depression or navigating life transitions and relationships, we're here to offer you a safe, accepting and compassionate space to explore your concerns and start working towards a newer you.
As a holistic psychotherapist I help individuals and couples achieve inner transformation through healing the core psychological issues. With over 10 years experience, I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, addictions, self-esteem, obsessive thought patterns, and personal growth work. There are lots of psychoeducational videos of my approach at www.kenwalton.org We will use a tailored evidence based therapeutic approach. In a safe non-judgmental environment, we address the difficulties in your thought-belief systems, emotional complexes, and behavioural-patterns. www.kenwalton.org
Are you finding it hard to connect with yourself and others? Have you been feeling down, disinterested, withdrawn or anxious? Perhaps recent experiences have left you feeling crippled with self-doubt. Or maybe the best way to describe it is simply that you’re feeling stuck? I would like to help. Together we will identify persisting patterns of relating to the self and your environment that leave you feeling this way. We will chart a course to self-awareness and acceptance through alternative paths and choices. Using a psychodynamic approach, I create a safe space for us to explore difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
As a Christian woman, it’s hard navigating your experiences of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Your pain and suffering makes you question “If God is good, then why hasn’t he healed me? Is there something wrong with me? Do I not have enough faith?” Maybe past painful experiences of abuse or neglect haunt you and you can’t seem to forgive and move on. Depression and anxiety feel out of your control leaving you scared and hopeless. You pray and pray and pray and it doesn’t stop. Maybe you’ve tried therapy before and it didn’t help as you hoped. You desire and need the peace promised in the bible but it feels so far away.
*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* If you're reading this, it is likely that you are looking to make change(s) in your life but you may not know what needs to change or how to go about it. I'm here to offer you insight and new perspectives towards the challenge(s) you may be facing and provide you with the skills and tools to navigate it. We will collaborate in understanding the nature of the issue(s) and decide on goal(s) you'd like to move towards. Above all, I deeply value having a safe, open and transparent therapeutic relationship with you, and so, you can always expect to feel seen, heard and validated during our interactions.
Therapy offers us the opportunity to have the support we need to examine those areas of our lives we find painful, confusing, and challenging. My goal is to help you through any difficulties you are experiencing so that you can have better relationships and feel better about yourself. Topics of interest include depression and anxiety, relationship problems, addiction, self-harming behaviour, trauma and PTSD, life transitions, as well as pet loss.

Do you often find yourself on an emotional rollercoaster, struggling to get a hold of strong urges and stay in control? We help people with intense emotions, self-defeating thoughts and unhealthy behaviours that get in the way of them feeling and functioning at their best. We're a team of therapists specializing in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and we're here to help you untangle longstanding patterns so that you can take back control over your emotions and live a more meaningful life.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Is it intolerable to be around people yet painful to be alone? Are you in awe of your own circumstances? If these are some of your thoughts and fears I am here to listen and help. We become powerless and hopeless with our perceived loss of choice. Reaching out can be the first step to untangle the myths that you have created about yourself, others and the world around you. Through sharing and finding a new voice, curiosity can be renewed and with that journey - hope. You no longer have to be held hostage by your feelings, actions, thoughts or relationships. Compassion is key.
