Melissa Emerson is a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) based in Toronto, Canada. 

Status Update November 2022:  Currently accepting new clients.

Consider what brought you here. Are you worried about the future? Relationships suffer when we feel dissatisfied, lonely, or lost. Do you feel misunderstood? This can leave us feeling anxious or angry.

We can bring awareness to the beliefs guiding our lives and create greater connection to ourselves and others through the honest conversation therapy offers.

Many people find themselves struggling to understand their feelings. For each of us, there is an inner world: a place where beliefs and dreams create who we are in our everyday lives. Sometimes we need to learn how we are seen through the eyes of others to understand how those beliefs and dreams truly impact us.

Which of your beliefs and behaviours align with your values, and what have you learned to do out of a need to survive? Can they be one and the same? What does the difference between the two look like in your day-to-day? You might be surprised.
