WELCOME!

My name is Inga Gusarova. I provide online counselling and psychotherapy services to clients across Canada for a number of mental health, personal, and relational concerns.

I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor, with a Master of Science degree in Counselling Psychology. If you feel stuck or overwhelmed, my goal is to help you take steps toward a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I work with adults only, and some specific things I could help with include:
•   General stress management
•   Life transitions
•   Feelings and experiences of worry, anxiety, or depression
•   Grief and loss
•   Couple therapy (straight and LGBTQ+ couples, married or not, as well as long distance relationships)
•   Family/relationship difficulties (e.g., working on better relationships between adult children and parents, handling a family business transition when your children have a different vision, etc.)

Here is a summary of what I do and how it could benefit you:
✓    Online delivery (including secure email and video) and flexible hours. It’s okay if you are in another city, or find it difficult to get around, or have a stressful schedule: I can work with all that. In-person sessions are also available in my home city of Calgary.
✓    The first step of my role as a therapist is to provide a safe, comfortable, and confidential space where we work as a team. Then, I need to understand enough about you to create a personalized plan of action: Plan that is based on solid research knowledge and represents a good fit for your values and personality.
✓    My focus is on evidence-based approaches, including strength-based, solution-focused, systemic, narrative, and cognitive-behavioural tools.

I also maintain a list of resources with both self-help information and nationally-accessible organizations.
