Good Afternoon Guys my name is Sabrina. I’m not really sure how this all works all I know is how i’m feeling today and how I need to talk about it. So I am 2 years and 5 months Clean. You know I have everything back that I lost through my addiction and much much more, my sanity, love, trust, compassion…everything drugs stole away from me. I am currently an accountant for a huge business that I absolutely love working at and everything is going great. Today I went to have lunch with my husband and saw people – kind of like people I use to run with when i was using and that threw me off really bad and I didn’t realize it until I got back to work. Thoughts have just popped up in my head about people i use to use with and i was just like “I wonder what they are doing now” and start reliving my time’s in addiction. Before I knew it, it was controlling everything I was feeling and everything I was doing. Even today things like this will pop up and because I am working the program I am able to realize it for what it is and acknowledge what it is I need to do. One step at a time. I am not going to use, just for today. There is a better way! It get’s easier and better, I promise. If this hit me in my early recovery I wouldn’t have the tools and the understanding of addiction that I do now. Just work the program learn and meet other addicts in recovery. It works for me! One day at a time or one minute at a time or even one second at a time is a lot better than no time.
Therapy is a partnership between you and your therapist. You work together to find the causes of problems, as well as create solutions and strategies for resolving them. You end up with peace of mind and the ability to reconnect with the people close to you.

"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

Centre for Psychotherapy & Emotional Bodywork
Registered PsychotherapistVIEW PROFILE
I am a very creative therapist in the way I draw upon techniques of psychodynamic psychotherapy and emotional bodywork to bring a client into their unique relationship with their deeper self. No two people have the same path and these techniques allow for one's individual process to evolve.
Our personal work in therapy should bemuch deeper than just coming in to be heard. I believe people who seek therapy, not only desire to feel heard, but deeply desire to gain the solutions, insights and new ways of living that will change their lives for the better.
We can actually change what we believe about ourselves. If I believe that I am not important and that what I say does not matter, then everything that I do and say will demonstrate that belief. It is possible to learn to think positive, healthy and realistically positive thoughts about yourself.

We all come unglued from time to time. It's not weakness of character. It's life. If you love, you grieve. If you don't sleep, you get fragile. If you're mad, sad or scared for too long, you get anxious and depressed. And if you suffer in silence, you will suffer longer than necessary. I can help.
I understand it can be difficult to reach out for help when individuals are feeling overwhelmed, confused and scared. I appreciate and affirm the courage it takes to enter a therapeutic setting and into a therapeutic relationship. It is important to honor each client’s individual journey towards happiness, wholeness and health. I strive to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for all individuals and topics. I believe that providing a safe, judgement free environment is essential to address sensitive and personal issues. Creating a dynamic in which we collaborate together to establish goals for individuals is valuable. I believe that together we can discover effective possibilities that can provide insight towards resolutions. I am passionate about supporting individuals, children, families and couples throughout their journeys in counseling. I am here to help you identify and utilize your strengths, as well as develop new ones, to achieve your goals to reconnect with the joys of life. In addition to working with adults and couples, I also enjoy and have experience working with children and adolescents. I aim to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with my child and adolescent clients in order to provide a safe outlet for emotional expression, develop coping skills, improve mood, and strengthen self-esteem. I also enjoy and am trained in working with individuals and couples who are experiencing sexual concerns. I am a Certified Sex Therapist-Candidate through the Texas Sex Therapy Institute. Many people have trouble discussing sexual problems, sex therapy is designed to help you explore those sensitive issues and solutions can be created through the therapeutic process. My areas of interest, training and experience includes, infidelity, low sexual libido, vaginismus, erectile dysfunction, performance anxiety, addiction, out of control sexual behaviors, couple/martial conflicts, identity issues, kink, communication difficulties, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety. I enjoy working with everyone: monogamous, polyamorous, kink-identified and LGBTQIA+. If you find that you are struggling with asking for what you want and need in life, in your relationships and within yourself, the work we can do can help you grow and achieve your next level of happiness.
During all my years of practice of psychoanalysis in Toronto and other cities, I have found that many times talking with family members or friends is not possible or not useful, since they are going to have a bias vision about the problem, they may judge us or simply is something that we cannot disclose to them. That is when we need to find a third party with the professional training and the personal life experience that can help us to see our challenges under a new light. My experience as an individual counsellor and as a marriage counsellor, has led me to develop a technique that creates an environment of freedom and safety to express your challenges. Psychotherapy for me is the possibility to question every option, have the freedom to consider the possible outcomes and consequences of our actions and to have the time and space to decide what can make you happier, prouder and fulfilled as a human being or as a couple. I think that self-knowledge is the main strength that we can have as a person and the key to enjoy life fully. I have been in different countries, with different cultures and different languages and that has made me realize that it is possible to face challenges and problems in different ways according on how you would feel safer and confident in doing so. My wish is that every person can live his or her own life fully and freely in his or her own terms. I want to share that wish with you.
