Hi, I'm Danielle.  

 

Thanks for visiting my site and taking an interest in expanding your knowledge and consciousness.

 

I hope this small snapshot of my approach and who I am as a psychotherapist helps you get to know me a bit more.  I invite you to reach out, say hi and of course ask any questions you may have.  

A bit about my approach to psychotherapy... it is an integrative, holistic one that allows me to draw on various models of therapy so that your treatment plan is suitable and unique to you.  We aren't all created the same, right?  So why should the approach be any different!

I go beyond talk therapy to address the root of the issue, rather than focusing on managing the symptoms.  But most importantly, I aim to be solution-focused.

Through the combination of somatic, interpersonal, cognitive behavioural (CBT), and psychodynamic therapies, I'm able to help with alleviating anxiety, transitioning through difficult life stages, finding your purpose, processing grief, re-building confidence and self-esteem as well as healing old emotional wounds. 

I'm truly passionate about empowering you when you are willing and wanting to create a more fulfilling life so that you can live the life you love.  I am dedicated to helping you achieve your goals in a safe, nonjudgmental and compassionate environment.  My strengths lie in being able to provide valuable insights, tools and asking difficult yet thoughtful questions – all driven by compassion, intuition, empathy and curiosity.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).  I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist and a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH).

For the care and convenience of my clients, all sessions are currently conducted via online therapy (by phone or video).

Are you ready to give yourself the gift of a better tomorrow?  Contact me today and we can begin to explore the possibilities. 

Meet Danielle + Team

Karen Britt

Karen is a Registered Psychotherapist trained in Gestalt psychotherapy and Somatic body relational psychotherapy. Her approach is direct, supportive, compassionate, and gentle.  She works with you to co-create a space where self-exploration, growth and healing are possible in dealing with your current issues.  

Her task as a Gestalt therapist is to increase your awareness of what you do well and how you get stuck. Awareness is in itself curative and growth producing. It enables you to understand the ways in which you contribute to your own circumstances, while helping you to develop creative solutions to your difficulties.

Karen's philosophy is that the therapeutic relationship acts as an instrument of healing. She is an active participant in the therapeutic relationship and often shares her awareness of her own experience in relation to her clients.  She promotes experiential learning and experimentation over interpretation or cognitive insights. In doing so, she is able to help you to access and use your own self-knowledge. 

Karen enjoys working with individuals and couples.  Her areas of focus include anxiety, depression, self-esteem including body image, narcissistic abuse, emotional and relational abuse, trauma, chronic illness & disease and substance abuse.

She offers sessions by video or phone Monday thru Saturday.  Evening and Daytime appointments are available.

Melissa Farinaccia

Melissa is passionate about mental health awareness and approaches counselling from a biopsychosocial approach – meaning that she considers all aspects of your life and how they contribute to your concerns. She also takes a client-centered approach as she strongly views the counselling process as a partnership in which she works collaboratively with you toward achieving a place in which you are confident and genuinely happy with your life.
 

While working with Melissa, you can expect to become more aware of your strengths and potential. You can also expect to learn about the benefits of a “growth mindset” and how to apply this type of thinking to your everyday life. Melissa is a strong supporter of accountability and will develop a personalized plan to ensure that you remain accountable and motivated to achieve your goals. Melissa works with individuals who struggle with acute/chronic stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, relationship issues, trauma, and other day-to-day stressors.
