"I am registered therapist with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I have specialized training in Anxiety, Anger Management, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Individuals with Special Needs and Adolescents.
My biggest passion is empowering individuals to find the resources they need to become the best version of themselves.  

I am experienced to help individuals of all ages overcome issues such as anxiety, depression, work and stress management. I am the mother of four children. Two of my children have special needs (my daughter has a severe genetic disability and my son has ADHD, Executive Functioning issues and severe learning disabilities). 
It’s a rewarding and privileged experience to walk along the path of self-empowerment with my clients. I would be honoured to take the journey with you."

Jay Rao, BSc, MS Psy
Registered Psychotherapist

Focus: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Pain, Weight Management, Addictions, Life Transitions, Sports Performance, and Wellness Development
“As a counsellor and healthcare professional driven by compassion and a commitment to others, I believe that humans have the capacity to solve even the most complex of problems through utilizing themselves as their own resource. My education allows me the ability to help guide you through the most challenging issues in your life, but ultimately the greatest joy I receive is witnessing a sense of value, self-identity, and self-worth return as a result of reconnecting with the one person that matters the very most: you.

In treatment I rely on Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Solutions-Based Therapy, and Emotionally-Focused Therapy. Additionally, I draw from medical models of health in the facilitation of rehabilitation, dietary, and wellness goals for individuals. I am passionate about educating and motivating others to achieve the quality of life they deserve.”
