the process of making someone stronger and more
confident, especially in controlling their life and
claiming their rights
I'm Emma, a friendly and empathetic Toronto-based Registered Psychotherapist in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I earned a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from OISE/University of Toronto. My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed and compassionate. I strive to foster a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore and find solutions to whatever you may be dealing with. You will have my focused attention and commitment to understanding.
We all hit low points in our lives and face adversity that can seem unbearable. At times we all need a hand in getting back on track and skills for moving in a different direction. I strongly believe that sufferers aren't suffering because they're weak, but because they're wounded. Together, we will discover what you need to heal these wounds so that you can enjoy a life that feels more authentic, balanced, and fulfilling- regardless of your past or where you are at today.
I will be sensitive and curious while we work to understand who you are, what is going on for you, your needs and what you want. I will guide you to acknowledge and understand all of your emotions. Feelings of guilt, shame, confusion and insecurity will be resolved together, as we work to develop more balanced thinking and effective communication skills.
It takes courage to ask for help, thus I see all clients as strong and capable of change, otherwise they would not be in my office (currently virtual office). My commitment is to meet you where you're at and to help you feel safe exploring whatever you're struggling with. I will support you to achieve your goals and to build self-compassion and self-reliance in your daily life.
Psychotherapy can provide an effective and fulfilling way to help rebuild a sense of well-being, improve relationships, and increase capacity to cope with all the unexpected things that life can bring. Psychotherapy can guide you to achieve greater self-awareness, self-reliance, and empowerment in your daily life.
