We all have a mental image of what we would like to accomplish before the final curtain falls. How far or close to that goal we feel becomes the measure for the quality of our lives. As we move through life, we will encounter challenges and obstacles that will bring along self-doubt, hopelessness, and existential dismay. These can be very convincing and will try to make us believe that we are too far from where we want to be; that we will never get there; that we have no control over things; that our lives have no meaning and are being wasted; and that we should just give up and fade away. Many will lose motivation and inspiration and ultimately fail to perform optimally in both their personal and work domains. As a result, countless potentially meaningful, happy and gratifying hours will be sacrificed.

At Sansona, we want to show you how to transform discouraging situations into challenges to overcome, learn from, and flourish in spite of. We want to help you rediscover your passion, purpose, and meaning, improve your psychological fitness, and help you stock up on psychological resources.

Imagine waking up every morning feeling like you can take on the world. Now, take that moment in for one minute and hold it until you really envision it as a tangible reality. Even though asking for help may seem like a huge, daunting step, all you really need to do is choose change! Once you take that first step, you may discover that you were only a step away from the path you want to be on.

Contact us today and commit to a positive change.

For what it is worth, life is worth living.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain

About : Testimonial




I offer professional counselling service that recognizes and appreciates each individual’s unique personality and circumstances. My goal is to help every client thrive emotionally, psychologically, and intellectually. I am equally as interested to hear a client’s story of trauma, loss, regret, loneliness, and difficult family dynamics, as I am to listen about times filled with purpose and happiness. I pay close attention to what is said, in addition to what is left unsaid, to uncover patterns of core beliefs.

I help each client dispel self-defeating beliefs and illuminate paths toward more meaningful experiences by drawing from a variety of psychotherapeutic interventions and therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, Solution Focussed Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Hope Focused Counseling.

My expertise and focus of clinical work include depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief, life changes, general life dissatisfaction, as well as family and relationship difficulties. I strive to amplify a client’s strengths and advance meaning in their lives, while simultaneously reducing negative emotions.

Real life experiences inspired my deep interest in learning about Psychology and the importance of hope, resilience, meaning, character strengths, and post-traumatic growth. I fled the turmoil of war-time Yugoslavia for the sanctity of Canada, and in between, spent much time living at a refugee camp in Austria. That journey brought me face to face with many individuals in crisis situations, but I also witnessed what the power and determination of human spirit is capable of. Following the war in former Yugoslavia, I spent some time there as a volunteer where I assisted local organizations and professionals in the development, modification, and implementation of appropriate sexual assault and domestic violence programs such as prevention, crisis intervention, counselling programs, and support groups through round table discussions, participatory consultations, and one on one meetings. 

 I believe the words of author Art E. Berg ring true:

“Dreams are born in the heart and mind, and only there can they ever die. Because while the difficult takes time, the impossible just         takes a little longer”.
