Hello, I'm Viktoria!

I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) and I provide psychotherapy and neurodiversity / executive functioning coaching. I have 20 years experience in mental health, developmental, and health care settings. I have completed ADHD Coaching training through the ADD Coaching Academy, an International Program. I completed a Bachelor’s Degree with a double major in Psychology and Women’s Studies and a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and combine counselling and coaching. My specialization includes ADHD, autism (formerly Asperger's), learning disabilities, and giftedness.​

I believe in an approach that is empathic, collaborative, strength based, accepting, client centred, and non-judgmental. Whether it's therapy or coaching, I will work with you to help you let go of the things that no longer serve you. I believe in the importance of a collaborative relationship in order to help you achieve your outcome.  

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
                    -Carl R. Rogers

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a collaborative process between the client and counsellor. Therapy is about being ready to change and being the agent of change in your life. I am here as a guide and collaborator to identify the changes that are currently in progress. Both client and therapist need to be actively involved in the therapy sessions. My role is to ask specific and thought-provoking questions, in order to help you increase understanding of a situation, process emotions, and enhance and develop coping strategies. You will determine your goals and we will go at your pace. Change happens in a trusting relationship where you feel safe to talk about the challenges that make you feel stuck. 

Neurodiversity / Executive Functioning Coaching 

During the coaching process we identify your goals and potential obstacles holding you back and develop a plan and practice strategies to overcome these obstacles.  Coaching neurodivergent clients may include executive functioning coaching, such as planning, prioritizing, organization, time management, emotion-regulation, and social interactions. Coaching may also include working on communication skills, relationship management, academics/study skills, or learning about your neurodiversity, and so on.

Neurodivergent Professionals  

Many of the clients I work with who are neurodivergent professionals, are very capable and hard working. Yet, they feel that something needs to change in order to thrive in their careers and/or personal lives, and manage stress and life more effectively. You might have trouble keeping up with deadlines, handing in work on time, arriving to work on time, determining which project is most important to work on, or managing complex/subtle social situations at work. You may feel shame about your struggles and worry that if people at work found out, it might hurt your career. On the other hand, some neurodivergent people thrive at work but struggle in their personal relationships and social relationships. The people closest to you don't seem to understand why you are struggling so much.  It seems simple for other people but almost impossible for you. It can be helpful to develop a plan with someone who understands your unique needs/strengths and identify the way that you work best to help you overcome these challenges. 

There are various reasons that bring people to therapy and coaching. At one point or another, many people can benefit from coaching or therapy in their lifetime. Our future does not have to be defined by our past. I believe in working from a strength-based and client centred approach. Contact me today for a no obligation consultation.
