Do you find yourself facing the same challenges time and time again? There comes a time when our tried and true ways of coping are no longer helpful. Whether you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, recent or childhood trauma, life transitions, grief and loss, self-esteem or personal identity issues I will work with you to develop new ways of coping that are relevant to the person you want to be today. I aim to provide a safe, confidential space for you to explore your true self.

In our everyday life we may find ourselves going through difficult situations. In some of these circumstances we are able to directly influence what is happening, and in some we are simply called to face them with courage and resilience. We may also find we are repeating behavioural patterns that lead us to unwanted results. I provide an empathic space to process your experiences and find your way toward the freedom and changes you are seeking.

Areas of specialization: Acculturation, couples, LGBTQIA+, anxiety, finding purpose, academic and career guidance, finding purpose, emotion management, life changes and transitions, self-understanding, depression, and stress management.

Positive Space practices: this is a place where human rights are respected.  

En nuestra vida cotidiana nos podemos enfrentar con dificultades.

Yo ofrezco un espacio empático para procesar tus experiencias y encontrar tu camino a la libertad y a los cambios que estás buscando.

I have a deep belief in the uniqueness of every person and my job as a therapist is to meet you with curiosity and compassion. Our work together will invite you to open the door to a better understanding of yourself and help you develop inner resources to make space for the joy and meaning in your life. My 6+ years of experience supporting individuals who have experienced trauma and struggle with substance use has shown me that healing is possible within a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive environment.

Areas of specialization:  Trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substance use and relational difficulties.

I practice from an integrative approach connecting mindfulness, somatic, narrative and emotion-focused therapies. I am passionate about incorporating mindful self-compassion and polyvagal practices in sessions to help you build emotion regulation. I’m also committed to accessible mental health education and offer learning opportunities through my YouTube video channel, LizB Therapy.

My hope for our work together is to create an authentic and non-judgmental environment where you feel safe and supported on your journey towards healing and discovering your most authentic self.

I approach therapy with the belief that all individuals are capable of growth and can create long-lasting positive change. Understanding that individuals come from different backgrounds, I believe that you are the expert in your life and that you know what you need to bring about your desired outcomes. My experience in the field ranges from outpatient hospital settings to crisis work and community-based programs. With over five years of experience in the mental health field, I have seen firsthand how individuals can transform their lives with appropriate care and support.

Areas of specialization: Our work will pull from various modalities such as cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, narrative therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, and emotion-focused therapy. My areas of focus include anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship concerns, phobias, and trauma work. 

I am passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding mental health by providing psychoeducation and using appropriate humor to normalize and raise awareness of mental health experiences, you can find this content on Instagram by searching @mentalhealthwellness.

In sessions, you can expect my presence to be energetic, empathetic, and validating as we work together to navigate a path forward. Ultimately my goal is to help you develop skills and tools that are meaningful to you, and that move you towards your therapeutic goals.

I believe every person is unique. Sometimes life sends us to curve balls that may be too much to handle by ourselves. Sometimes, we have feelings built up but no one is there to listen or understand. Other times we need someone to help us collect our thoughts, re-group, and take action. I know, because I’ve been there. And because it’s the human experience.

Empathy, authenticity, and active listening are what I bring to our therapy work together. I am currently a UofT doctoral student in Counselling Psychology. I draw on CBT, Narrative, Solution Focused Brief therapy, and client-centered techniques. I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Clinical Mental Health Masters degree and a Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.

Areas of interest: parenting, addiction, grief, stress management, health and body concerns, coping with life changes, refugee concerns, immigration, anxiety, and depression. I have six years experience of providing support to international students and those immigrating, helping them settle in a new country. I am committed to equity, diversity, and have a keen awareness of multiculturalism needs.

Together we will find the therapy approach that matches your needs. Counseling is a great way to discover yourself in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. We will work collaboratively to find pathways to what you want in realistic, achievable ways.

Areas of interest include: anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationship challenges, trauma, and transitional challenges. I work with both individuals and families.

With over 5 years of experience in the mental health field, I use an integrative approach of varied techniques to best fit those I work with.

At your pace, our work can help you reach your goals.  We will honour your strengths, values and the resilience you bring to life. Together, we can build a bridge towards authenticity and growth in a safe, empathetic, and ethical space in which you can explore. I have been dedicated to my passion for counselling for many years. I provided over four years of crisis intervention and emotional support at the Distress Centres of Greater Toronto.  I am currently completing a Masters of Education in Counselling with a thesis exploring another passion – the relationship between fashion and mental health. 

Areas of interest include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, identity, life transitions, career directions, navigating oppression and academic stress.

I believe everyone can become the best version of themselves. Whether you are embarking on a new chapter in life, simply turning a page, or re-writing your life story, I am here to support you.  Through our work together, hopefully you too can see that your potential is limitless.
