 Bella Vita Psychotherapy provides in-person therapy in Burlington, and virtually across Ontario. Counselling and psychotherapy services are offered to children, teens, adults, couples and families by a Registered Psychotherapist. 


Individual therapy is beneficial for those dealing with mental and emotional strain. Support for your mental and emotional well-being is provided in one-on-one sessions, as the therapist works closely with you to address any range of issues. Some areas of focus can include: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, etc. Evidence-based techniques and therapeutic modalities are utilized to help you gain insight and develop coping strategies, to achieve positive change.
Couples therapy is often referred to as marriage or relationship counseling. The process is aimed to address communication issues, conflicts and other challenges that may be straining the relationship. Evidence-based approaches aim to foster empathy, intimacy and mutual understanding. Working together, we will develop strategies to address relationship issues and encourage a healthier, connected partnership.
Family therapy, or family counseling, is a specialization which focuses on improving dynamics, relationships and communication within a family unit. Family therapy may involve an entire family, or select family members, to address any issues or concerns which may be causing stress. Some common family issues include; conflict, grief and major life changes.
Teen therapy is a specialized area of support tailored to the needs of adolescents. The teenage years are a significant period of growth, change and development. A safe and confidential space is provided for teens to address and explore their emotions and challenges. We can work together to develop strategies for coping with issues such as anxiety, depression, peer pressure, self-esteem, stress and family concerns.
Child therapy comes in the form of play therapy or child counseling. This specialization includes the use of age appropriate techniques and play-based activities to help children express their feelings and concerns in a safe environment. These methods address issues such as behavioural problems, trauma, anxiety, and change.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This therapy is an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy and can aid in the treatment of trauma, PTSD, phobias, dissociative disorders and more. An EMDR session involves revisiting traumatic experiences in a safe and controlled manner and allowing your mind to reprocess the memories for emotional healing.
