Hello!

I'm Mariola

Helping you transform and thrive is my passion. 

I have been helping people connect more deeply with themselves and others for the past 15 years.

 

If you are excited by the prospect of new possibilities, want more passion and love in your life and the word transformation gives you chills - the good kind - then I am the therapist for you.

"There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul."

 - Victor Hugo

The first thing you should know about me is that I care a lot about my clients. I believe that people are always doing the best they can and that they usually have the best of intentions.

Second, I have attended therapy myself. I have been where you are - searching for the right therapist, scared to open up, not knowing what to expect. I have had many challenges and therapy helped me tremendously - and it can help you too.

I love to learn. I love to read. I read A LOT. Anything can strike my fancy, from Stephen King to Anne of Green Gables to The Hero With a Thousand Faces. I eat lots of chocolate and drink millions of cups of tea, with lemon and sugar. I have been with my husband for over twenty years and I have a wonderful daughter.

Oh! I recently discovered Tarot cards and learning about their history gives me chills.

If you would like to know the details about my professional experience - I am a Registered Social Worker, I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from York University. I am a certified EFT couple therapist through the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). It was my great pleasure to work directly under the supervision of the founder of EFT, Dr. Sue Johnson, for two years.

I have worked as a Clinical Supervisor for seven years and as a therapist in community mental health for 15 years. I have managed various programs, trained in CBT, Solution focused therapy, mindfulness. I have also run groups and workshops for anxiety, domestic violence and depression.


Last but not least...I have a great sense of humor.
