About Daryna

I would be honoured to support you in your journey toward healing. I strive to create an
empowering space where you can feel safe to explore any topics and concerns, and I believe
there is room in therapy for all feelings and emotions.

I have completed the Master of Pastoral Studies Program (Buddhist Stream), with a Certificate of
Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from Emmanuel College at the University of Toronto and will
be graduating in May 2023. I also hold a HBSc from the University of Toronto with a Research
Specialist in Psychology and a Minor in Buddhism, Psychology, and Mental Health.
I incorporate my training in Spiritual Care into my work by viewing one’s culture and religion,
spirituality, or meaning-making system as an important part of their identity. I have experience in
supporting individuals from various faith traditions and spiritualities, including those who do not
identify with any tradition. I believe in the importance of whole-person care and am interested in
understanding what’s important for you and bringing that into our work together.

I use an eclectic approach to psychotherapy that integrates aspects of various therapeutic
approaches including Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Interventions, and Cognitive-
Behavioural Therapy. In our sessions we will work together to figure out the best approach for
you. I am here to support you through past, present, and future challenges. I look forward to hearing
from you and starting our work together.
