we all have the potential to grow & blossom

 By harnessing our abilities, inner strengths, and inner wisdoms we can better navigate life challenges and move through ‘human’ issues that keep us stuck. The reward of this process is a deepened sense of wholeness, happiness, and well-being.

hello, my name is dr. teri sota a toronto psychologist

I am a Toronto Psychologist registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. I have over 20 years of clinical experience and specialize in providing individual therapy to adult clients who seek my help for a variety of concerns. I also have an interest in facilitating group retreats.


I approach psychotherapy from a holistic and integrative perspective.

This approach means that I pay attention to a client’s thoughts and beliefs, emotions, and behaviour, as well as mind-body interactions and spiritual life.

Having said that, it is important to me to consider clients’ unique ways of processing and to work with them in realms of exploration that are comfortable for them. My aim is to help my clients gain greater awareness and understanding of their inner emotional life, how they tend to think about themselves and the world, and how they relate to themselves and with others.

Often people seek psychological help because they are in emotional pain or feeling stuck in negative and repetitive patterns. With your willingness and commitment and my skills and experience, we can work together towards identifying obstacles that hold you back and make changes to help you get unstuck, move forward, and experience a greater sense of well-being. This process is an investment in yourself, your life, and your future.

Some of the numerous, potential benefits of psychotherapy include:

  • Easing of emotional distress (e.g., feelings of depression, anxiety, or anger)
  • Decrease in negative, repetitive thinking and/or problematic behaviour patterns
  • Increased confidence, self-worth and hope
  • Clarity around who you are and what you need and want
  • More satisfying and meaningful relationships with others
  • Spiritual integration
