My name is Viktoria and I am a Psychotherapist, registered with The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). I have a passion for helping others and with over a decade of experience working with the differently abled community I know how difficult it can be to access mental health services. I joined this profession to help others and am committed to helping you overcome the difficulties you are facing.
I work from a strength-based approach with my clients to help them improve their quality of life by teaching them to better cope with negative experiences, stress, anxiety, and depression. I incorporate many social work and psychological frameworks such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Talk Therapy during treatments and view each client as an individual. People are unique and there is no one technique or treatment that everyone will respond to. I use all my knowledge and skills to create a treatment plan that is individualized for each client and expect that you will be an active part of the decision-making process.
Working with me ensures that you will have a counselling relationship that is non-judgmental and collaborative. Whether you are managing a chronic illness, struggling in your relationships, or stressed at work, I am here to help and support you. Everyone faces challenges in life; no one is without hardship. Engaging in a counselling relationship allows you to face your challenges and reach your goals without feeling overwhelmed. The insight you discover and the tools you learn are lifelong benefits to counselling. Life can get busy; but making yourself a priority will increase your productivity and help you lead a much happier, healthier and satisfying life!
I am excited to work with you! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
