Lina Toyoda
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Are you feeling overwhelmed by a difficult situation in your life? You don’t feel like your usual self, or may be going through change or loss that has impacted you in unexpected ways. I’m a trauma specialist who focuses on depression, anxiety, grief, substance use and self-harm. I will help you to let go of limiting beliefs about yourself and change your negative thinking. Perhaps you want better coping skills for emotional regulation or to shift out of your perfectionist or people-pleasing behaviours and feel more confident in your decisions. You will begin to understand the relationship between your thoughts, emotions, and actions, and be supported to live life fully, aligned to your highest values. You may be searching for meaning and purpose in your life or wanting to feel more satisfied in your relationships.

I am committed to providing a safe and judgment-free space for you to explore your experiences. With a trauma-informed approach, you will be guided toward healing and greater self-awareness. I will support you through change and challenges to help you realize your greatest potential.

My approach to therapy is collaborative, open-minded, empowering, and culturally sensitive. I will support you to better understand yourself and your patterns, how your past experiences inform your current situation, and the underlying issues which are impacting you today. It takes courage to take the first step, and I welcome you to the therapeutic process.
