Quick, close your eyes. Where do you expect to be in five years? When I was in my own despair, I never would have imagined that less than five years after living through such tumultuous times, my life would bring me to this incredible field. My work is now my calling and I am super passionate about supporting my clients through their growth and change. For over a decade, I have worked with a range of private clients and organizations. My years of experience has introduced me to clients and their families, experiencing highly diverse struggles including trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders , substance abuse, and more.

I enjoy working with folks who are looking to heal from childhood/developmental trauma, complex PTSD, chaotic substance use, personality disorders , and struggles related to being queer, transgender, and/or non-binary.
Therapy doesn't have to be scary! I know first-hand what it can be like to suffer in silence, longing for change, & struggling to find someone who "gets" you. If you grew up in a home where you didn't get the support that you needed, if you went through something that you feel like you have never recovered from, or if you feel like a black sheep everywhere you go, I would be happy to co-create a non-judgmental healing space where you feel seen, heard, & valued. We can work on things like learning to understand yourself, re-gaining control of your life, & appreciating the parts of you that have clawed you out of your darkest times.

I offer therapy for narcissistic abuse recovery, either caused by neglectful parenting or abusive relationships.
I believe that no matter what you have been through, there's always a way to move forward and start to heal. Even in the darkest of times, there's a glimmer of hope and a desire to feel at peace and safe. What matters is that instead of giving up, you are seeking help and that means you are getting ready to use external and internal resources to move past what's causing you distress. I take an individualized approach that is tailored to the needs of each client. I believe in providing a non-judgmental atmosphere where you feel safe to be yourself.

As a survivor of narcissistic abuse myself, I have done extensive research, certifications and trauma therapy to understand and heal from the effects of narcissistic abuse.
If you are involved with a pathological narcissist, and even if you're not sure, you are probably feeling confused, uncertain and most likely (because you are here!) at your "wits end". Narcissistic abuse is REAL and difficult to heal from on your own. Our brains are "plastic" and become "damaged" from the "Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde" behaviours of reward and punishment from the personality impaired individual we've tried hard to accommodate, causing us relentless internal conflict (I want to leave/I cannot leave). I will help discern what you've encountered, how to deal with it, and how to move forward. For more info: www.marthadigby.com

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.
