Hi! I’m Emilia and my pronouns are she/her.
I’m a registered psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, a member of the Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists, and the founder of New Moon Psychotherapy. I earned a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Western University and a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in Psychology from York University.
I began my career working with youth and adults experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder as well as justice-involved and high-risk youth. Since, I have focused my work primarily on post-traumatic stress and related difficulties.
I specialize in helping youth, adults, and couples heal from difficult life experiences including sexual/emotional/physical abuse and criminal victimization (eg. robbery, human trafficking, kidnapping). I’m committed to using evidence-based approaches. These are therapies that have been heavily researched and can be effectively used to help you heal from these difficult experiences.
You might believe that life can’t get better or that you’re not capable of growth. My goal is to empower you to see your strengths, to overcome your difficulties, and to transform your life.
