Hello, I'm Viktoria!
I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) and Psychotherapist and completed a Bachelor’s Degree with a double major in Psychology and Women’s Studies and a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. I have 17 years experience in a variety of settings. I have worked with people from all walks of life. I have a broad range of experience but some of my specializations include Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and learning disabilities, as well as mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. I also provide a positive space for LGBTQI2+ clients and people from various diverse backgrounds.
I have worked in hospital settings with children and youth, multidisciplinary healthcare teams with adults who have chronic mental health issues, community counselling centres, schools, crisis programs, sexual assault/domestic violence centres, autism/developmental services and dual diagnosis programs. I have participated in program development and systems navigation.
There are various reasons that bring people to therapy. At one point or another, everyone can benefit from 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. I will work with you to help you let go of the things that no longer serve you. I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship in order to help with outcome.
