Welcome to my practice! My name is Monica, and I am a registered psychotherapist (qualifying), with over 20+ years of coaching, mentoring, parenting and entrepreneurial experience. I understand the challenges many of you face with anxiety and depression that is rooted in issues with self-esteem, especially as a first generation immigrant. I can support you to understand and overcome these pervasive and unhelpful thoughts. Click More about Me to find out more about my approach and what I offer as your therapist.
My Korean background and upbringing in Toronto have given me a unique perspective on life, and my own journey to becoming a psychotherapist has included experiences with loss, trauma, disordered eating, and body image struggles. Through these challenges, I've developed a deep sense of empathy for others who are going through similar struggles.
I believe that therapy is a powerful tool for healing and growth, and I'm committed to creating a warm and non-judgmental space where my clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. My approach to therapy is integrative and tailored to each client's unique needs and goals. I draw from various therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) approaches, and Emotionally focused therapy.
I specialize in working with clients who are struggling with disordered eating, anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, and life transitions. I also have experience working with individuals who have experienced trauma and abuse.
If you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or uncertain about your life, know you're not alone. Together, we can work through your challenges and create a roadmap to the life you deserve. Please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a consultation or learn more about my practice. I look forward to hearing from you!
