Life isn't always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life's more challenging problems. There are times when our path leads us off the course of happiness and fulfillment, and into some dark corners.

It is possible to get out of the dark places, find the key to unlock the difficulties you're experiencing, and direct your path back toward the sun. It is possible to develop centeredness, calmness, self-love and openness, to redefine your self-concept and to cultivate mindfulness in your mind, body and soul. It is possible to find happiness and to allow it radiate in you and through you.

At Mindset Toronto, I want you to know that it is never too late to change and start living the life you've always wanted. After all, life's too short to spend another day at war with yourself! At Mindset Toronto, you will have your specific needs met in a way that is collaborative, comfortable, and conscientious to help you elicit positive changes in your life. I will work with you and for you to ensure that you are meeting your individual therapeutic goals and becoming the person you've always been capable of being. This is my passion!

If you're interested in becoming a better, happier, more mindful and fulfilled you, I'd love to work with you every step of the way. Please contact me today!

More Info About My Practice

At Mindset Toronto, I realize that no two people are the same and as such my therapeutic approach is personalized to the client, often utilizing combined modalities including empirically-supported techniques inherent in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic approaches. I'm happy to discuss these approaches in more depth! Whether you are struggling with stress, a traumatic experience, issues related to self-esteem, anxiety, depression, anger issues, or even substance abuse to name a few, I can help you to uncover underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier, more mindful and positive way.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My practice specializes in treating treating trauma and PTSD, anxiety and mood disorders, issues related to self-esteem, relationship issues, sleep and pain management

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I always knew I wanted to help people, a cliche statement but it couldn't be more true. I've always been the type to see the good in others and there's no better career for me to help others draw from the good that resonates within and let it flow within them and trough them as they reach toward their goals and overcome difficulties. More than this, being a therapist has allowed me the privilege to help people in an impactful and meaningfully positive way while at the same time experiencing personal growth as I learn from clients every step of the way what it means to truly develop and possess happiness, gratitude, centeredness, mindfulness, self-acceptance and compassion, a positive mindset and self-concept, calmness and a feeling of being content in all senses of the mind, body and soul. Being a Psychotherapist is my passion and I absolutely love what I do. There's nothing I'd rather do in life.

My Therapy Focus

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs. It is very normal to feel nervous or intimidated about seeking therapy or talking to a stranger! I seek to provide a safe, compassionate, understanding and nonjudgmental space and atmosphere to deeply connect and for you to discuss the difficulties that you feel comfortable disclosing and collaboratively working on. If you're uncertain about any part of the therapy process or want to find out more about what it entails, please contact me. I'd be very happy to help answer any questions.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. This does not make the seeker weak or flawed. It means you've made a choice to improve your life, and that in and of itself represents strength and courage toward progress and refusing to be limited by comfort zones. Everyone needs help now and then. You already have some strengths that you've used before, that for whatever reason isn't working right now. Perhaps your situation feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths. Perhaps you would like to learn about other strengths you didn't know you had or could develop to help you navigate and cope with your difficult situation. In our work together, I'll help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now. Psychotherapy or counselling can help you experience a reduction in the intensity and frequency of the symptoms that caused you to seek therapy in the first place. It can also help you feel supported during difficult times in your life.
