Monique Nyemecz


I am a warm, engaging therapist who takes pride in working in a collaborative and straightforward manner.  Sessions are conversational and the focus is on growth, change and quality of life as well as problem solving and symptom reduction. While my therapeutic orientation is predominately psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy also inform my thinking and interventions. Blending elements of the different theories allows me to tailor interventions according to your needs.

I invite you to read my website to learn more specific details about my work as a therapist.

What can be particularly worrisome is not knowing why you are experiencing anxiety. On your own it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of your anxiety despite the overwhelming nature of the feelings. I will help you become more self-aware and working together we will uncover the causes and meaning behind your anxiety. Throughout the process, you will acquire invaluable tools that will help you manage your anxiety allowing you to feel more in control of your life.

In couple counselling I help you explore your relationship. This means looking both at the individual and the way you relate. By improving insight and empathy and gaining better communication skills and a healthy ability to express your needs, poor relationships can be transformed into healthy ones.

The term depression is used when a person lacks energy, hope and ability to create a fulfilling life. Symptoms range from overwhelming to subtle, for instance, from being bedridden to just getting up tired in the morning, from crying all the time to a lack of enjoyment, or from an inability to have any relationship or work at all to subtle self-sabotage before achieving a desired goal. Psychotherapy will help you work through the emotions and thoughts, as well as encouraging thinking about what may be contributing to the depression. Therapy focuses on long lasting change and will also help you find genuine enjoyment in life.

The work environment can be challenging! Issues at work can become overwhelming and affect your self-esteem, emotional and physical wellbeing and relationships. I will help you effectively resolve work issues, by gaining insight into the causes and will work with you to find a way to improve your engagement and enjoyment in your work life. I draw on my training and experience as a dynamic psychotherapist and knowledge of human resource management.
