Ria Padania RP

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you go; they merely determine where you start”, Dr. Lauren Fogel Mersy. Many of us are struggling with emotional, behavioural, interpersonal, situational, and environmental issues alone and require someone to actively listen and hold on to. Showing up and discussing mental health issues can be tough yet important.

As a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), Ria can help you with concerns such as anxiety, grief, stress, job, relationships, family, trauma, behaviour, emotional self-regulation, OCD, addictions, disordered eating, educational concerns, and managing negative thoughts and feelings. She is here to help her clients live a fulfilling and emotionally rich life.

Ria has experience working with adolescents, teenagers, adults, newcomers, immigrants, 2LGBTQ+ communities, and people from various cultural backgrounds. Ria ensures that her clients receive comfortable, non-judgmental environment and inculcate internal validation while also assisting them in maintaining stability and resilience.

Ria is an eclectic therapist, trained to provide evidence-based psychotherapy using modalities such as CBT, DBT, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, IFS, mindfulness-trauma informed therapy, and gestalt therapy, to mention a few.
