Hello there, I’m Arkadiy, but you can call me Ark. Welcome to my About Me page! I’m excited to have this chance to give you a glimpse into who I am and how I can be a part of your journey towards healing and personal growth.
With a Master’s degree in Psychological Counselling and specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Somatic Experiencing, I bring a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to my role as a psychotherapist. My diverse life experiences have shaped me into an empathetic and understanding therapist, capable of assisting you through challenges involving anxiety, developmental trauma, and relationship struggles.
Before my focus turned to psychotherapy, I pursued a successful career as a lawyer. Despite the fulfillment it brought, I felt a profound calling to make a more personal and transformative impact by helping individuals and couples. My own journey through significant life changes, such as immigrating to Canada, has provided me with a unique viewpoint and insight into the difficulties that accompany such transitions.
Throughout my professional journey, I’ve gained valuable insights by working in diverse settings, including educational institutions, clinical environments, and private practice. These experiences have granted me a deep appreciation for the intricate tapestry of human experiences and the inherent resilience within each individual. I firmly believe that everyone possesses the potential for change and growth, and my commitment lies in assisting you in unlocking your inner capabilities.
In our sessions, you can expect a safe, judgment-free space where you’re free to explore your concerns, process past traumas, and develop effective strategies to manage anxiety and relationship challenges. I draw upon evidence-based techniques like CBT to help you recognize and challenge negative thought patterns, EFT to strengthen emotional bonds and nurture secure relationships, and somatic experiencing to facilitate the integration of mind and body in the healing process.
My therapeutic approach is centered around you, the client, recognizing that you hold the expertise of your own life. I’ll listen intently, validate your experiences, and collaborate with you to devise personalized treatment plans that cater to your specific needs and aspirations. Together, we’ll work towards empowering you to initiate positive changes, cultivate healthier coping mechanisms, and foster enriching relationships.
I am honored to accompany you on this transformative journey. If you’re ready to embark on a path of healing and personal growth, I encourage you to reach out and schedule a session. Remember, you’re never alone, and I’m here to offer support every step of the way.
