VIELKA ALMANZAR, HBA, MED, MA – REGISTERED PSYCHOTHERAPIST
I am a Registered Psychotherapist serving clients in and around Whitby, Ontario, and online. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
I use a variety of approaches to address my clients’ unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of brain and mind work. I usually recommend we begin with some neurofeedback sessions. It primes the brain for better learning. My treatment plans usually are based on adlerian, behavioral, biofeedback/neurofeedback, biopsychosocial, cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, compassion focus therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, emotionally focused therapy, experiential, family systems, multicultural, psychoeducational, rational-emotive, solution-focused brief therapy, transactional analysis therapy. All treatment plans are tailored to your unique needs and goals. My plan for you will include an approach that includes tools to help you sustain the growth experienced in therapy.
There is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
