My Story

Hi, I'm Maria Yaglovski, a Registered Psychotherapist, and a Canadian Certified Counsellor, and I'm happy that you are here!


This section offers insight into my background so you can get to know me better.

 

Not so long ago I was browsing the internet to see what would help me be a happier, less worried person. After extensive research, I felt discouraged, helpless, and stressed. I was not sure what to do with my life or how to give myself a meaningful purpose.

 

As a child, I dreamed of becoming a doctor and helping people. And while this did not happen, I found another way to help. Initially, I became a registered nurse (this is as close as I came to being a medical doctor) and have spent over a decade helping individuals with their medical needs.

 

I still felt a little empty though. It wasn’t enough. I wanted to find a way to be more efficient with the help that I provided to others.

 

This was the birth of my journey to becoming a therapist.

I decided to become a therapist to help others with their emotional needs. In my time as a nurse, I noticed that medical illnesses are not necessarily the underlying problem for all ailments. While we can treat infections, diseases, and broken bones, our emotions require more introspection. It was then I realized that self-care and emotional balance can work to heal us from the inside out.

 

During my graduate studies for therapy, I faced many challenges, both physical and emotional. I suffered many losses, physical ailments, and experienced emotional and physical burnout. While it was tough, I did not give up. I felt these experiences were helping me to become a better therapist.

 

I believe that my personal and professional journey has enabled me to provide the kind of support that people often struggle to find. That’s why I decided to make my mission to help others find the relief they seek.

 

This journey was my lesson. It has allowed me to lead a more meaningful life and was the most inspiring chapter in my life thus far.
