I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) and Psychotherapist and completed a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. I have 15 years experience in community mental health, healthcare, and school settings. I have worked with people from all walks of life and I am very dedicated to my clients. I help clients gain skills and develop strategies to help them cope to deal with challenges and overcome obstacles. I use an eclectic approach based on my client’s unique needs, and I am trained in evidence-based modalities such as CBT, DBT, Solution-Focused-Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and other techniques. I have a broad range of experience working with clients across the life span in a variety of areas but some of my specializations include:
· Relationship issues
· Self-image/self-esteem issues
· Weight management
· Special education (learning disabilities, giftedness, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder/developmental issues, dual diagnosis)
· Behavioural challenges/parenting
· Bipolar disorder
Psychotherapy can be an effective way to develop or make better use of interpersonal skills and capabilities such as self-awareness and understanding of others, improve communication, develop trust, insight, distress tolerance, and problem solving.
I am also fluent in Hungarian. I provide services in the comfort of your own home in Peel or Halton regions or in my confidential home office in Mississauga South. At our first meeting you can expect to have a simple conversation. I will want to get a clear sense of what is going on for you. You will not need to tell me everything, just enough to help me understand what has brought you to counselling. You will have a better understanding about what to expect and have an opportunity to ask me questions. We will then set our next appointment and have a plan in place.
