Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

316 Dupont Street, Toronto, Ontario

I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, which is an approach that can help you explore and address the deeper root causes of psychological symptoms. I can support you in uncovering, expressing and processing your feelings and emotions in psychologically healthy ways. Understanding and processing these deeper emotions and beliefs can help to bring relief and a sense of integration. You can start feeling more hopeful, with a greater sense of possibility.

Eglinton and Kipling (two minutes east of Highway 427), Etobicoke, Ontario

Most people consider psychotherapy because they are in crisis and seek an intervention that will improve their lives. The issue may involve work or the recognition of recurring, destructive themes that prevent them from living out their dreams. I use a framework called Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, originating from Diana Fosha. It uses a model of attachment to establish a clear, supportive relationship that helps people feel safe enough to explore deeper issues and to know that they are not alone. I aim to help them reach inside themselves to deal with painful feelings, make way for the resilience and wisdom that reside in each of us and find the transformation we seek.

You can work through your life issues! Psychotherapy is different from counseling. Counseling is working with current life issues and discussing them, processing emotions, and creating action plans to improve issues. Psychotherapy is deeper healing work where we explore how your current life in various areas has potentially been impacted by your early life and your life until now, and the beliefs and schemas that you formulated through those. We work with both the past and present simultaneously to heel wounds that occurred, big or small, and how to transform those into shifted behavior in the now. We will work with your thoughts, your emotions, and your behaviors in a manner that is unique.

Pape and Danforth, TORONTO, Ontario

Family and friends are priceless. They can support and be presente when needed. However, it is necessary to work certain areas of your life in a therapeutic environment. As a therapist I remain objective and my main focus is on you. In addition, since psychoterapy is confidential, you can discuss concerns without concern that anyone else will know what you revealed. Psychotherapy also aims to improve well-being by helping individuals to balance their life when chaotic events occur. With psychotherapy you can discover and create a healthier version of yourself.


Anne Marie Shewfelt, MDiv, RP, RMFT

Registered Psychotherapist, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

3250 Bloor Street West, Etobicoke, Ontario

I have a relational, and empathetic approach to psychotherapy. My work is also informed by a number of theories and modalities of therapy. Attachment theory, family systems theory, and human development theory are lenses which enable me to see and understand patterns and processes in one's life which are creating unfulfilling outcomes. I work with clients in a relational and integrative way bringing understanding and emotional healing to situations. This frequently creates a paradigm shift which becomes transformative in the life of the client.

Registered Psychotherapist

3250 Bloor St. W., Suite 600, Etobicoke, Ontario

Psychotherapy and/or counselling is seen as forming a relationship between a client(s) and therapist, to enhance and promote well-being and mental health of individuals, couples, or families. Counselling can be helpful for you if you are experiencing distress and difficulties associated with life events and transitions, decision-making, work or education, family and social relationships, and/or pre-existing mental health concerns. The client is the most important factor in this process of change and growth, while we work on current skills and strengths and implement new ones as well. Psychotherapy can be helpful to receive a diagnosis, assessment, and better understanding of your well being.

1550 Gordon St., Unit 19, Guelph, Ontario

The key is to find the right therapist and psychotherapy ... "what works" for you. Research confirms that a positive alliance between the client and the counsellor is one of the best predictors of outcomes in therapy. I am trained and experienced with numerous models of change. Clients report, however, that they feel the most heard and understood when I help them open up their emotions. John Gottman states that Susan Johnson is "the best couple therapist in the world." I have been trained by Susan Johnson and I highly recommend her book to you, Hold Me Tight, and also my Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey.

I provide counselling and psychotherapy services to individuals, couples and families in different categories of concern, which may include psychological health, couple & family difficulties and workplace struggles. My approach to personal development is gentle, yet direct, practical and solution oriented. Working with me will help you develop an objective understanding of your obstacles and the ways you sabotage yourself - by increasing your authenticity and courage to change and transform what is not working to what is acceptable and desirable to you.


Barbara Lesniak, M.A., C. Psych. Assoc.

Registered Psychological Associate

204A-2399 Cawthra Road, Mississauga, Ontario

Many of us struggle with depression, anxiety, loss, relationship troubles, stress, self-esteem, substance abuse or other issues. Psychotherapy can help work through such problems to develop healthier, more effective habits. My approach includes cognitive-behavioural, and insight oriented therapies. I provide a supportive environment that allows to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral and non-judgmental. We will work together to identify and change the thought and behaviour patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best. You will not only have solved the problems that brought you in, but you will have learned new skills so you can better cope with any future challenges.

Therapist and Consultant

People often come to therapy to get rid of painful and difficult feelings. Rather than getting rid of our feelings, therapy is a skilled process of helping us understand ourselves so we can use our feelings to navigate our lives. Even the very painful feelings hold vital information for us to become sure-footed in our life. Just like in martial arts, we use the momentum of the attacker and redirect it to ensure our safety ; in therapy we use the information from the painful feelings to clarify what we need to create more safety in our lives so we can thrive. It is a valuable process of allowing our feelings to work for us to create satisfying joyful lives.


Jennifer Shneer, AWCCA, M.S.W., RSW, CT

We will work together to improve your well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills. I will help you heal and learn more constructive ways to deal with the problems or issues within your life. CBT is one approach I may use.


Nicole McCance, M.A., C. Psych

Registered Psychologist

2405 Lakeshore Blvd West, Suite 404, Toronto, Ontario

We all want to feel good. Whether that looks like feeling more connected and supported to our partner, feeling more at peace, more confident or more hopeful. In the end we want to feel good and have our lives flow with more ease. Taking an hour for yourself and speaking to a therapist can make a dramatic difference in your mood. As a therapist I hold you accountable for the things you want (need), because we often don’t follow through when it is just up to us. I may gently point out your blindspots and help you become aware of the core beliefs about yourself, others and the world that keep you feeling anxious or depressed.


Kelly Thorarinson, M.S.W., R.S.W.

Registered Social Worker

2921 Lakeshore Blvd. W., Etobicoke, Ontario

I could write about my influences, however the best way I could describe what i do is from the words of a former client. In a unique, many years post-therapy interaction, she shared that I gave her self back to her. When I ask how she perceived I did this, she replied that I saw her for who she really was and did not judge her for that. I can have lots of training, theories and education - which do help, and I have a fair bit. What I really have in abundance is the curiosity and desire to learn about people and their stories; and I love seeing when clients are in a good space, loving who they are and what they are doing with their lives by the time we finish our work together.
