Yasmeen Farrage, MA, RP
My practice focuses on helping individuals find a positive mindset by developing a positive outlook, cultivating openness and mindfulness, redefining your self-concept, enhancing your inner vision, discovering inner calmness and awareness, building on your inherent strengths to overcome difficulties, and just as important taking the steps toward uncovering an authentic, better version of you! When you’re the best version of you, the real you, the quality of what you put out into the world and what you give to others also improves. I seek to provide a safe atmosphere to deeply connect and collaboratively work with clients to evoke positive changes in their lives. I want my clients to experience feeling content in mind, body and soul.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist, educated with a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and an Hons. B.A. in Psychology. I am a Professional Member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
My areas of special focus include working with individuals experiencing trauma, PTSD, issues related to self-esteem, attachment and relationship issues, sleep, and pain management. I also have an interest and experience working with those struggling with anxiety and mood disorders, bipolar disorders, substance abuse and addictions, attachment and relationship issues, crisis intervention, anger management, executive coaching, stress, ADD/ADHD, eating disorders and dual diagnoses. My experience also lends itself to working with youth, the LGBTQ population, ethnic minorities, those affected by violence and racism.
My therapeutic approach is personalized to the client, mainly utilizing combined modalities including CBT, DBT, ACT, Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic approaches. In addition, I have interest and experience in administering psychological assessments and writing assessment reports.
