Counselling & Psychotherapy

Languages Served: English, Cantonese, Mandarin

 

Many of us struggle with problems in relationships, school, family, work or emotions within ourselves. We may have tried to deal with them by ourselves, or thought of seeking help but fear being judged. The decision to examine our life in order to cope and heal is a sign of strength, not weakness. It can often be helpful to have someone present with us as we share, process and grow.


My work has been dedicated to this process. I am a registered psychotherapist and clinical social worker in good standing with many years of experience in the field of mental health, working directly with individuals and families from various cultural backgrounds in both community and clinical settings. I value the opportunity to walk alongside you on your journey of self-discovery and self-compassion, as you make your own way through life's challenges that are complicated by depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger, trauma, grief, illness, chronic pain or life adjustment.


I has been trained in a variety of treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), mindfulness practices, and Motivational Interviewing (MI). I work from a strengths based perspective, and adapt my approach to create a plan that will work for your unique concerns and personal goals. I provide a safe, confidential and judgement free space where we work together towards acceptance, change, self-management and overall well-being.


Issues that I work with:
•    Depression
•    Anxiety
•    Stress
•    Anger
•    Trauma
•    Family Conflict
•    Parenting
•    Relationship Issues
•    Self Esteem
•    Grief and loss
•    Life transition issues
•    Suicidal Thoughts and Attempts
•    Self-harm

 

Services provided by a Registered Social Worker are covered by most private insurance plans. Some insurance plans may also cover for a Registered Psychotherapist.


If you ned to cancel or reschedule your appointment, kindly give our clinic 24 hours notice before your scheduled appointment. A fee may apply for failure to show up for your appointment or not canceling 24 hours in advance.

Nutrition Counselling and Education

Rita Lau, RD

 

Rita Lau, RD  is a Registered Dietitian based in Toronto, Ontario. She specialized in chronic disease and weight management.

Service is available in English, Cantonese and Mandarin

What does a dietitian do?

Dietitians work with you to help you feel your best. They translate scientific research about food and nutrition into practical solutions for individuals, families and communities. A dietitian would not just hand you a diet or a list of foods not to eat and send you on your way or promote or sell you unnecessary food or supplements. The advice and information they provide is tailored to you and your needs.

University educated – Hands-on training
Dietitians have a university degree in foods and nutrition from an accredited university program and hundreds of hours of supervised, hands-on training.  Just like all regulated health professionals, dietitians are required to practice ethically and to complete annual professional development to make sure their skills are up to date.  They adhere to Principles of Professional Practice.

Why see a provincially regulated professional?
It’s one way you can be assured the advice and information you are receiving is sound. You wouldn’t ask a celebrity how to build a safe bridge, you’d ask a professional engineer. You wouldn’t ask your neighbour who has an interest in medicine to provide you with medical advice. The same thinking should apply for nutrition advice.

Dietitians, just like engineers and medical doctors, are accountable to provincial regulatory bodies for their professional conduct and the services they provide. These provincial regulatory bodies are in place to protect the public. They also serve as a point of contact for consumer complaints and malpractice. For more information, contact the regulatory body in your province.

Prenatal Obstetrical Care

Are you pregnant?

 

For newcomers to Canada, we offer a initial visit consultation for prenatal and obstetrical care. We will conduct a history and physical, order important and necessary tests, and provide you with counselling & advice about navigating the medical system in Toronto. We will assist you in finding the right doctor to deliver your precious baby.

Please Contact us at 416.508.5691 and request a "Prenatal Obstetric Care Consultation".

 

In Canada, there are three types of health professionals that deliver babies:

The most well known are Obstetrician/Gynecologist specialists. These doctors not only deliver babies, they also take care of womens health matters, and do surgeries such as C-sections and gynecological surgeries. Their practice is mostly surgical in nature.

There are also Family OB physicians. These doctors are Family Medicine specialists who have additional training in delivering babies. They not only take care of your general health (as a general practitioner), they also know all about prenatal and obstetrical care. They are excellent and many patients find the experience enjoyable. The deliveries are done in the same hospitals, with the same equipment, and the same nursing staff as OB/GYN specialists. If at any point during your delivery, that you may require surgical interventions, they can always refer you to an OB/GYN specialist on-call to take care of the surgical matters.

Finally, there are Midwives who do prenatal care, deliveries, and post-natal care. These professionals have been trained solely to delivery babies, so they know their job very well. They are hard to get an appointment with, as they are very popular. You need to get on their list as soon as you know you are pregnant. They can deliver your baby in the same hospitals as doctors, however, if you wish to have a birth at home, then these are the people you need to connect with.

Please contact us at 416.508.5691 and book a "Prenatal Obstetric Care Visit" today!

Get Well Weight Management Program

[ REFERRAL FORM ]

 

If your doctor has advised you to lose weight because of a medical condition, this can sometimes be associated with feelings of denial, apathy, guilt, anxiety, depression or despair. However, since your life depends on changing  your current lifestyle, we would like to coach you through the process of living well!

View from a Different Perspective:

Our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings impact our lifestyle behaviours of buying, eating, sleeping, and being physically active. We would like to help you explore these deeper forces that shape your motivations and lifestyle patterns, and hopefully by looking at the process of living healthy with another perspective, you can evaporate some of the barriers that make lifestyle change difficult.

Most Diets Work... For a Time:

Research has shown that many diets help people lose weight in the beginning, but people eventually gain weight again, often because the diets are difficult to follow. We would like to help you custom design a nutrition and activity plan that works for you, for a particular stage of your life, and one that is sustainable. This means that it may change over time, depending on what is going on with your life. There may be setbacks, but the key is to try again. We would like to be there to coach you on this journey, and keep you accountable to the choices you make.

A Journey Together:

Healthy living is straightforward to understand, but difficult to execute. You know yourself best. We know how the mind and body works together. We would like to engage in a continual discussion with you on what you have learned (about food, cooking, exercise, work life, family life, psychology, physiology, biochemistry) with what we have learned about the same matters. We work with you to help you understand yourself, how your thought patterns affect your habits, behaviours and choices; and build a custom plan that works right for you.

 

How Does this Program Look Like?

  • Medically supervised and monitored
  • Custom designed for your unique situation
  • Counselling sessions to explore the psychological aspects of how we live our life
  • Medications prescribed or injections for weight loss, if clinically indicated
  • Regular “Check-Ins” for coaching and accountability
  • Commitment from you to develop a custom plan of mini-changes to eat better and stay active
  • Membership fees apply. SPECIAL OFFER! ($510 + HST for 3 month trial, $1210 + HST for 1 year plan)

 

Please come in to talk about it!

If this sound interesting to you, please Contact us and make a first appointment. Please also ask your family doctor to complete the REFERRAL FORM and fax it to back to us.
