According to Canadian Mental Health Association
Anxiety is the most common mental illness in Canada. Anxiety is a serious mental health condition. With anxiety one feels nervous, irritable, or on edge; has a sense of impending danger, panic or doom; experiences an increase in heart rate, starts to breath rapidly (hyperventilation), starts sweating, and/or trembling; has difficulty concentrating, trouble sleeping and even experiences gastrointestinal problems. Panic attacks, as a part of anxiety, can be very distressing. They can begin suddenly and strike at any time — when one is driving a car, at the mall, sound asleep or in the middle of a business meeting. Psychotherapy deals effectively with anxiety and anxiety related disorders. It is possible to be 100% anxiety free! We will teach you (and provide you with tools) that will help you to recognize and control your anxiety related issues.
Depression is a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, cry and sometimes you may feel as if life is not worth living.
Depression is not a weakness and you cannot simply "snap out” of it, "stop complaining" or "get over it". Depression kills people and this cannot be taken lightly. Nearly 800,000 people die from suicide due to depression every year. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds worldwide.
Depression may require long-term treatment and may require the use of medications. However, recent research shows that CBT psychotherapy is equal in effectiveness as medication for curing depression or depression related issues. We are trained in CBT and we are able to effectively help you to overcome your depression and related issues.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. An event is considered traumatic if the person experienced, witnessed, or was confronted with an event or events that involved actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence. Depression, anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few of such emotions that can linger post traumatically. A person who develops PTSD will display four types of symptoms:

Family/Couples therapy, can help to discover invisible problems, detect and resolve family gridlocks, and teach how to cope with conflicts. Many couples learn to deal with their issues and build happy, successful relationships after professional therapy.
We use Sound Relationship House Approach, developed by Dr. John Gottman, one of the modern and prominent family therapists. Your goal, according to John Gottman, is to move “from gridlock to dialogue.” Once you’re able to do that, you can learn to live with almost any perpetual problem.
A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder in which you have a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning and behaving. A person with a personality disorder has trouble perceiving and relating to situations and people. This causes significant problems and limitations in relationships, social activities, work and school.
In some cases, individuals may not even realize that they have a personality disorder because their way of thinking and behaving seems natural to them. And they may blame others for the challenges they face.
We practice CBT, DBT, Mindfulness and Neurofeedback therapies while helping personality disorders sufferers.
