“No matter how successful I am, I still feel like a failure. I worry that everyone will find out I’m an imposter, and my accomplishments were all flukes.” Sound familiar? I work with driven, smart, professional women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’. Your inner critic can steal away so many moments of joy and make you lose sight of your true self. Ready to make a change? Therapy can create space for confidence, clarity, self-worth, and genuine fulfillment.

I provide psychotherapy which is grounded on listening and understanding. There is much for me to hear before I get the full picture of what is going on in your life, and lots to discover for you and me together before the time comes for my expert advice. My main discovery of the last decade is that here, in North America, people can come to many therapists, for many times and yet not become ready ever to say openly what is the matter. It is why I know my clients need time to assume that I am really on their side. To figure out, bit by bit, what the possible advice or solution can be and then help you to do that we decide to do, I have my basic training in client-centered psychotherapy (“by Carl Rogers”), and I am a very, very orthodox Rogerian therapist. In addition, I have studied cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectic-behavioral therapy, music psychotherapy and non-directive child play psychotherapy. I will apply in your situation that which matches your particular needs. Also, I realized that some ideas of psychoanalysis, Adlerian psychotherapy, Existential therapy and Logotherapy can be helpful as well.

I believe we are all capable of improving our lives but many of us become "stuck" in the process due to self doubt, insecurity, lack of self esteem, past and/or present trauma, losses, etc. My approach is to work together to find the most appropriate solutions for these issues, or find comfort and acceptance with the challenges of life. With broader perspectives, or an alternative life choice, we increase our general well-being. I believe in practical solutions and appropriate perspectives, allowing all of us a better sense of comfort and competency in everyday life.

Often we seek therapy because something in our life is not working for us. We are tired of feeling chronically overwhelmed, we may be unsure of how to manage our relationships, or want to stop negative patterns that no longer serve us. I appreciate that it takes courage to explore our inner world of thoughts and feelings. I am a skilled and compassionate therapist who has supported hundreds of clients on their healing journey as they learn new ways to cope with stress and better navigate their emotional reactions and relationships. Extra support is often the ingredient clients need to overcome significant hurdles in life.

Available for new bookings - video sessions only at this time. I am committed to building a relationship that supports your unique needs, develops your strengths and fosters your innate ability to heal. Often, we aren’t afforded the time, opportunity or privilege to learn the most beneficial ways to sift through what comes our way. We tackle things as best we can using strategies learned from previous experiences. In some situations, our default strategies end up taking us further away from what we want. This can prevent us from fulfilling our needs - we may get stuck not knowing how to cope or how to move forward.

I would like to invite you into a non-judgmental, nurturing, and anti-oppressive space, where we can work together to address the challenges in your life. Sometimes life can bring hardship and unexpected events, which can produce negative feelings and emotions. Some of these challenges require less support to process and work through, while others may take longer and require more frequent support to overcome. As your therapist, my goal is to understand you, your needs, and guide you to cope with or overcome the difficulties interfering with your everyday life.

Peer Relationships in West Toronto, Toronto

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in West Toronto, Toronto

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in West Toronto, Toronto

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject.
