My name is Reem Khafagy, and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I feel it is my greatest honour and privilege to be let into my clients' inner worlds and to help them explore, understand, and make sense of their experiences. I appreciate so much the vulnerability and courage it takes to seek therapy and want to acknowledge the strength it takes to walk this path.
I am passionate about helping my clients connect to themselves and build deeper, more fulfilling relationships. I use a gentle, curious, and empathetic approach to therapy that aims to help you create a kind and compassionate relationship with yourself.
As a person of colour and immigrant, I believe that each person's unique cultural identity is an essential part of understanding them holistically, and I am committed to creating a culturally sensitive and inclusive therapeutic environment. I believe that every person has the ability to live a meaningful, authentic life and build fulfilling relationships, and I will work with you to achieve that. My approach to therapy is non-pathologizing, meaning that I see my clients as whole people with strengths and resilience, rather than a collection of symptoms to be fixed.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is at the core of effective therapy. I enjoy building genuine human connections with my clients and creating a space where you can feel seen, heard and validated. I believe that authentic connections are fundamental for our mental health and general wellbeing. Together, we’ll work to create a strong therapeutic relationship that honors your unique needs and goals.
My therapeutic approaches are grounded in the following modalities:
When I'm not working, you can find me crocheting blankets, reading, playing with my two cats, doing jigsaw puzzles, biking, or learning new recipes. I believe in the importance of having fun and enjoying the little things in life, and I bring that same spirit of playfulness and curiosity to my work as a therapist.
If you resonate with what you’ve read so far, I invite you to schedule a consultation call with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
