Hi, I'm Olivia Bynkoski. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and Certified Counsellor with a master's degree in counselling psychology from Yorkville University.
My counselling approach is mainly derived from existential, narrative, attachment, acceptance-based, and person-centred theories. I don't subscribe to the thought that therapy can be done using a manual or by telling you what to do. I firmly believe that therapy should be client-directed and is about learning, self-discovery and reauthoring your story.
I specialize in life transitions, anxiety, depression, boundary-setting and trauma. I have specific experience working with new mothers (both prenatal and postpartum), people who are dealing with work and school stress, and developmental trauma. For animal lovers: I have personal and professional experience working with individuals who have lost a beloved pet.
I will play a small but potentially important role in your life. You're going through a tough time and you need to sort things out and talk to someone. My personal stance is that we are all human and we are all doing our best to navigate life. Sometimes we experience tough times of struggle, distress, upset and/or changes. I'm here for you. I have a quiet, clean, cozy space where you can talk without being judged, criticized or belittled. Everyone has a story and I want to hear yours.
