Psychotherapy & Coaching

Hi, I’m Lori Ralko, a Registered Social Worker psychotherapist

Psychotherapy can help with a variety of issues including:

  • Anxiety
  • Relationships
  • Low self-esteem
  • Depression
  • Life transitions (i.e. relationship endings/divorce, mid-life crisis, loss)
  • Identity issues (i.e. cultural, gender, sexual)
  • Work and career
  • Sexual issues

Psychotherapy can also open up new areas of opportunity.

My approach

My approach to therapy focuses on helping you to reach the following goals:

  1. Obtaining relief from psychological symptoms (i.e. anxiety, panic attacks, depression);
  2. Exploring options for dealing with life situations (i.e. relationship and career issues, loss, illness); and
  3. Achieving greater self awareness so that you are:
    • Less vulnerable to recurrence of problems and symptoms
    • Better able to cope with challenges
    • Well positioned to move forward in life

I view therapy as an investment in yourself that can help with existing problems and open up opportunities for the future.

In many cases, extended health benefits may cover all or a portion of session fees. Please check your plan for details.

Flexible scheduling arrangements and late evening sessions are available for people who work erratic hours (i.e. film industry, shift work, etc.).

To discuss your interest in therapy or to set up an appointment, please contact me at [email protected] or 416-710-4958. Appointments are often available as early as the next business day.
