Improved mental health services now available in Northern Ontario
Even the cities in Northern Ontario--Dryden, Elliot Lake, Sudbury, Kenora, North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie,Thunder Bay, Temiskaming and Timmins--have until recently been underserviced, leaving residents with little choice of mental health services, and often with unacceptable wait times. Now, with technological services and psychotherapists trained in offering online therapy, things are much improved, at least for those who can afford a private service or have third party coverage.
Small centres are set to benefit even more--places such as Blind River, Chapleau, Cochrane, Espanola, Fort Frances, French River, Greenstone, Hearst, Iroquois Falls, Kapuskasing, Kirkland Lake, Black River-Matheson, Blind River, Chapleau, Cochrane, Espanola, Fort Frances, French River, Greenstone, Hearst, Iroquois Falls, Kapuskasing, Kirkland Lake, Manitouwadge, Marathon, Mattawa, Manitoulin, Parry Sound, Red Lake, Sioux Lookout, Wawa and West Nipissing. Those that already have broadband are benefiting right now.
More Ontario psychotherapists and counsellors with many years experience
Cosmina Ionescu Vaccarino MA, member, OATA & OACCP, Toronto
My background: I have been a therapist for over 20 years, helping people of all ages. I have obtained a B.Sc from Mcgill and an M.A degree from Concordia in Montreal, and after living in California for a year, I have made my home in Toronto.
My training has continued beyond those degrees and is multi-layered: psychobiology, stress reduction, biofeedback, art therapy, mindfulness, visualization, dream work, Jungian-oriented psychotherapy, sand tray therapy, solution-focused counselling. I have many years of experience here in the city as a clinical director of a treatment centre, I also have been a clinical supervisor and teacher in my field, having trained many other therapists; this experience makes me feel well prepared to deal with your individual, couple or family situation.
My philosophy: At any age, we can find ourselves looking for support and guidance, during times when we can't see clearly our way out or have lost the sense of direction and motivation. I help you access new sources of strength in yourself in order to find that sense of direction. It is a pleasure to witness the change and growth that happens in each person who comes to see me in therapy, even during very difficult moments. I believe that therapy can help us find the harmony and beauty inside each one of us as well as the concrete life-solutions we are looking for.
I provide help with issues such as depression, anxiety, women's issues (post-partum, fertility, menopause), parenting, grief, transitions, career/future orientation, body image/eating disorders, creativity/creative blocks, looking to imbue life with more meaning, enhancing focusing, creativity and productivity.
I work in English, French, Italian and Romanian. These are all languages I use on a daily basis.
Please don't hesitate to approach me with your questions by e-mail or phone. Messages are strictly confidential. I look forward to hearing from you.

Rozanne M. Grimard RP MEd Counselling, Clinical Member OSRP, Toronto
my background: I have been a therapist for 20 + years, working with adults and couples who struggle with a variety of life's troubles.
my focus in life has always been on healing, having been in nursing for a number of years and working in palliative care before training to become a therapist. I did my training at the Toronto Institute for Human Relations while studying at U of T and OISE to obtain my degrees. I teach at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy and have done so for 20 + years as well. I love the mix of working with clients and also teaching others to do so. My theoretical focus is on Relational, Intersubjective theory and in the past few years, I've been very interested in the studies of plasticity of the brain and how this relates to the work I do and to the way I understand healing.
my philosophy: I believe that we are all in need of healing and that it can happen at any age. There is much suffering, disconnection and pain in our lives and in our world. My therapeutic focus is on individuals who struggle with trauma, grief, loss, transitions, addictions, hopelessness and fear. I consider the whole person of the client, paying attention to the mind, body, spirit, and cultural contexts from which they come and in which they live. I do so with respect, attunement, respectful challenge, genuine empathy and authenticity, paying close attention to my client's pain and also to their capacities of resilience and healing.
My office: located at 455 Avenue Road, Ste. 200, Toronto, Ontario M2H 1Y3 (Avenue Road and St. Clair Ave) firstname.lastname@example.org
