When overwhelming emotions limit the pursuit of our responsibilities or passions in life there are effective strategies that can help regulate and minimize the emotional storms as well as provide the resilience needed to thrive in your life despite those storms.  Life can be very difficult, unlike physical pain that is usually hard to ignore therefore treatment is sought after, emotional pain is unfortunately often ignored hoping it goes away.  Anger, stress, anxiety, low moods, loss and relationship upheavals are all issues that can be better worked through with professional support through those storms.

My name is Tim Kahtava, I am a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario and have been fulltime psychotherapist for over twenty years.   Most of those years were as the director/therapist of a not-for-profit organization in Northern Ontario.    With a push from covid, I transitioned into private practice at the end of 2020.   My passion and focus is to help those struggling with emotional and a relationship struggles that can effect and limit the quality of their lives.  I always welcome those who like to include their faith as an essential source of support and strength in their journey through life.   I am an empathetic listener with a heart to facilitate relief, growth, strengthen coping skills and the transformation my client’s desire.  Though my primary therapeutic modality is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  I include a variety of strategies that will help my clients reach their goals.  I appreciate your courage in taking the first step in reaching out for support.  I trust this will be first step in feeling and functioning better in many areas of your life.
