    Welcome!

    You are not defined by the things that happened to you and you can heal from them.

    The reason this is so hard to believe is because difficult experiences change the way we think, feel, and act.

    We start to believe that others can’t be trusted, that there’s something wrong with us, and that we’re not good enough.

    We feel out of control of our emotions and at the same time detached from them. We feel on edge, hypervigilant, and have a feeling that something is going to go wrong – even when there is no proof.

    Decision making is difficult. Spending time with others is hard. Keeping up a front is exhausting.

    Sometimes we’re haunted by our memories, our sleep suffers, and it feels like nothing will ever help us. Like we’re beyond fixing.

    This is trauma.

    It can be hard to know where to start and to imagine feeling better. Maybe you’ve reached out for help and it didn’t work – maybe it even made things worse.

    We’re happy you made it to this page! New Moon Psychotherapy is located downtown Toronto and we also offer virtual psychotherapy Ontario wide. We are a team of dedicated trauma fighters who are passionate about getting you the results that you want to see.

    At New Moon Psychotherapy we are committed to using evidence-based approaches to help you rise from your experience(s), release the past into the past, and claim the life you’ve always wanted.

    New moons symbolize new beginnings

    In many ways therapy is a new beginning. 

    By letting go of old behavioral and emotional patterns we make space for new ones. 

    By processing your traumas we create new ways of thinking and understanding. 

    By learning different strategies we allow new ways of responding.

    Although we cannot hit ‘delete’ on our past experiences (we wish we could), our past experiences are NOT a life sentence. 

    You can rise from your symptoms and you can begin living the life you want and deserve.

    Learn more about us and how we can help

    We are now offering services in person

    Contact us to get started!

    Call, text, or email using the information/form below. When you reach out our intake coordinator will answer any questions you might have and learn how we can help you.

    We will match you with one or more therapists for a free 15-minute consultation.

    This is a chance to meet with the therapist, learn about their approach, and determine if they’re the right fit for you. Client-therapist fit is one of the greatest predictors of success in therapy!

    After the consultation, you will schedule your first therapy appointment and begin your healing journey!

    It may be hard to believe it now but recovery is possible. We’re here to support you along the way.
