Vivian Hochmanovich, MA, R.P.
Areas of Practice: Adults/Adolescents; depression, anxiety, chronic pain, self-esteem, grief, loss, relationship difficulties, parenting, anger, personal injury.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist, licensed with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario. I hold a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology, and since 2002, I have been providing therapy to adults in a private practice setting. I have helped many adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, chronic pain, relationship difficulties, grief and loss, parenting and anger management, and accident and personal injury-related stress.
My genuine empathy and nonjudgmental approach enables clients to feel safe and respected. My aim is to convey to my clients that each person is unique, thus experiencing and coping with life’s challenges in their own way. I use an eclectic approach, depending on what best suits each individual, and believe that everyone can benefit from gaining a deeper understanding of their symptoms and why they experience them. Dealing with, and getting through unexpected changes in our lives can be difficult. Together, I work with my clients to understand their thoughts, moods, emotions, and behaviours that are affected by life’s stressors, and begin the process of learning how to cope and feel better. I apply principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness-based principles, and client-centered therapy.
