Meet Sonia Panchyshyn, BSW, MSW, RSW
Hello, I’m Sonia Panchyshyn, and I have a great love for the work that I do.
I am a compassionate, dedicated therapist with a passion for helping others. I strive to provide excellence in the work that I do and have a deep desire to help my clients experience positive personal growth and change.
With over 28 years of experience, I have a solid proven track record.
I have helped countless individuals, couples, adolescents and families regain control of their lives and move forward to a more rewarding life.
As a therapist, I specialize in helping people who are struggling through difficult life situations. My approach to therapy is to support you through life’s storms, assisting you to navigate to a place of calm. I can help you to identify what ails you and guide you towards enhancing the quality of your life, creating a life that enables you to live in a more joyful and meaningful way. Utilizing an interactive approach, I invite open dialogue throughout the sessions. I help you identify your personal goals for change and provide clinical strategies for growth towards a new destiny. I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for depression and anxiety.
I hold a Bachelor Degree in Social Work from McGill University, a Master or Social Work Degree from the University of Toronto and a 3 year College Diploma in Special Care Counseling from Vanier College in Montreal.
I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
At my Life Changes Clinic I offer individual, couple, relationship, family therapy and also work with adolescents. I work with people from all walks of life with diverse cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. This includes varied family configurations and sexual orientation. I have many areas of expertise and excellent clinical skills. Sessions are confidential and are held in an atmosphere which is compassionate, caring, supportive and non-judgmental.
