Dr. Monica Chi Eaton, MSW, PhD, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

As a therapist specializing in relationship counselling, I draw upon attachment science to help people understand how secure and healthy relationships develop. Whether you are seeking therapy as an individual or a couple, my goal is to equip you with the skills needed to cultivate a secure bond that endures through the good times and bad.


Lisa Chae, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

My practice focuses on helping families find healthy communication patterns, improve relationships between parents and children, and build strong family values. I use a holistic approach that addresses the emotional needs of families as a unit. Whether you're  struggling with parenting issues, family dynamics, or navigating life transitions, I'm here to support.


Dr. Anders Dorbeck, PsyD, CPysch

Registered Psychologist

I practice in the areas of Clinical and Rehabilitation Psychology, with adults. I am especially passionate about using exposure-based strategies to help people with a range of anxiety and related difficulties, as well as common but challenging life circumstances flowing from relationships and work. I also provide a wide range of psychological assessment services.


Chanmi Iris Park, MDiv, RP

I work with individuals--youth and adults--and families who are struggling with social, emotional, and mental health challenges. I also enjoy working with parents, providing them with strategies to manage different challenges. I am also passionate about journeying with people as they go through life transitions including recovery from trauma.

What is the earliest availabilty you have?

Each therapist will have a different availability. If you wish to book the earliest available appointment at Praxis Counselling, you can check out our online booking at https://praxis.janeapp.com.

Are my sessions confidential?

Any information provided to your therapist is held in the strictest confidence. No information that you have shared with us can be shared without your specific consent. Our privacy policies will be shared and discussed with you at the beginning of your treatment.

What is your fee?

The fee for therapy depends on the qualifications of the therapist and the duration of the session. While counselling and psychotherapy is not covered by OHIP, many private/corporate/university health insurance plans cover psychotherapy services provided by Registered Social Workers or Occupational Therapists.

How long will I need to be in therapy for?

The length of time varies for each individual client and what they are seeking treatment for. That being said, we draw from science to give us a map of our clients’ treatment journey. Our approach help our clients learn skills and strategies to become their own therapist and understand how they can challenge unhelpful thinking patterns, and better manager their behaviours and emotions.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel a session, you must notify your therapist. Except under extenuating circumstances, you will be charged the full fee for any appointment that is missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
