Svetlana received her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from the OISE/University of Toronto and is a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. She has practiced as an independent psychotherapist in Toronto, Ontario since early 2012. She has experience with clients from diverse backgrounds, both at educational institutions and in the community.
We can be holding ourselves back in life and from success and happiness without even realizing it by blindly repeating or enabling negative habits, thought patterns and behaviours. Psychotherapy is an integrative experience which aims at resolving the impact that painful experiences have had on our lives so that we can move forwards with vitality.
Svetlana uses an experiential, predominantly Emotion-Focused approach, always within each person’s uniqueness, goals, and needs, to craft a personalized plan that goes beyond just having people talk about their concerns. She also believes in genuine change, and walks with people toward their arrival, so that they may permanently leave the places and things which have mired and held them back in life.
Svetlana is committed to providing a truly integrated approach to therapy which support and enables positive change on every level – emotional, physical and social.
Svetlana’s portfolio includes presentations, workshops, and seminars on various topics, as well as a published book entitled “Metaphysical Dictionary”.
