Psychotherapist & Expressive Arts Therapist
Welcome, I'm Lydia Charak. I'm a registered psychotherapist seeing individual clients in the east end of Toronto. I also offer affordable group therapy and workshops throughout the city incorporating the arts. My approach goes beyond traditional talk therapy because I know that people have different expressive styles — one individual may be more visual, another more tactile, another more talkative and so forth. By including these various expressive capacities in my work with clients, I can support and enhance each person’s abilities to communicate effectively and authentically and enable their discovery of the healing potential of their imagination.

I have always been curious about why people do and say the things they do and how one manages to overcome incredible hardships and trauma to thrive. I feel privileged and humbled to be my client’s witness and companion on their road of self-exploration and recovery. I bring a holistic, sensitive and trauma-informed approach to therapy and I promise to provide a safe, warm, collaborative and non-judgemental environment for you to express yourself and feel understood. It is my belief that connection and relationship are the cornerstones of good therapy.

I am accepting new patients and have openings in the evenings and on weekends because I know how difficult it can be to fit therapy into your busy life. A 30-minute free consultation in person or over the phone starts the process and will give you an idea of how we can work together. Please send me an email to book your free consultation and 1st appointment.

I'm listening,
