Are you considering psychotherapy?
Whether you are unsatisfied with how things are, even with all the hard work and accomplishments in your life…
Or if you are unsure about how to change some things in your life that seem unchangeable, psychotherapy might help to navigate you toward the changes you desire.
My name is Mio Yokoi, Registered Psychotherapist in downtown Toronto.
It is my belief that the goal of good psychotherapy is change, and therapy can help you identify and work towards your goals.
As a therapist, I am attentive, empathic, compassionate and committed to the therapeutic process.
This means that I will listen carefully and work with you to understand and make connections in your experience.
It is my goal that you experience feeling appreciated, heard and clearly seen as the unique and complex individual you are.
