Vivien is deeply committed to an integrative approach to mental health – one which considers the totality of a person, including their cognitive, emotional, spiritual, and social circumstances. She grew up in Europe and Canada and understands rudimentary Greek. She provides counselling treatment for a variety of individuals and circumstances, including family of origin issues; periods of transition – such as those of young adulthood, marital separation, menopause; and a host of other challenges. She has a Ph.D. in psychology and spent fifteen years in research before returning to school to train in psychotherapy. Vivien has worked in the fields of memory and depression, both abroad and closer to home, including at Yale University’s School of Medicine and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. She is currently awaiting registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
