Lakshmi Mupparthi M.A., R.P.

Life presents challenges that can create a cascade of negative thoughts and feelings in our life and difficulties in relationships at work and home.  When we become absorbed in our negative thoughts and feelings, we become immersed in a world of anxiety and depression, and sometimes its hard to find our way out of this space.  I applaud you for taking your first steps in turning the tide of this difficult cascade of thoughts, feelings, and relationship difficulties.

I have been practicing psychotherapy for over five years and am comfortable in working with individuals and couples from all backgrounds and orientations. In individual therapy, I enjoy working with adults navigating challenges related to stress, anxiety, negative emotions, identity, relationships and more. In couples therapy, I help couples break down their difficulties with addressing conflict to help them build deeper bonds to enhance intimacy. Having experienced emotional challenges myself, I understand the impact of small changes that happen in life or at work, on mental state. My focus is on building a safe space where you can feel comfortable and understood.

In our first meeting, I would love for you to share your story and what you are looking for in therapy. Together, we will explore and build goals that are comfortable to pursue and, in the process, cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. In addition, we will complete a comprehensive, scientific-based assessment for you to gain a better understanding of your struggles and their origins.

I like to be flexible in my approach so my clients can benefit most from the research-based approach I provide them with. I am grounded in a humanistic and experiential perspective and borrow from emotionally focused (EFT), internal family systems (IFS), psychodynamic/analytic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), mindfulness, and other psychodynamic therapy styles. I am interested in working with trauma, especially in how it affects our self-esteem and relationships. At CFIR, I work under the supervision of Dr. Mélodie Britt, C. Psych, who also accompanies me in furthering my knowledge regularly.

I am a registered member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists in Ontario, with a Masters in Psychology and an additional Diploma in Clinical Psychology. I am also a registered member with the Rehabilitation Council of India and practiced therapy in India before moving abroad.
