Hey, I'm Raluca(she/her)

Relationships and connections with others are an essential part of life. But what happens if our closest relationships cause us the most distress? What if those relationships are dysfunctional, toxic and even abusive? What happens if we do not feel safe, emotionally nourished and loved without condition in our relationships? The answer is feeling a complexity of emotions, at times like we are numb while at other times like our emotions are out of control. We may also experience anxiety and fear even when there is no true threat, and/or have such low moods that we think we will never feel joy again.
I look to connect with clients where they are in that moment. I tend to be direct and realistic, helping build on a client’s existing strengths to add more productive coping skills to regulate their mind and body, increase their emotional capacity and become more effective communicators. I use mindfulness and behavioural techniques, and teach clients distress tolerance and emotional regulation skills, as well as the basics of relating to others.
