Your First Session

Your first session can take anywhere between 50 - 80 minutes. During this session, you and your clinician will discuss your presenting concerns (i.e., why have you reached out for counselling services), your background (e.g., family, medical, social, etc.), gain a general understanding of what you seek from counselling, and identify how our services might support your process. You and your clinician will decide on how frequently you will meet (e.g., once or twice a week at 50 or 80 minutes), which can change as necessary.

Service fees are covered by extended health programs if you are covered for psychotherapy, psychology, or social work (MSW / RSW). Please review your extended health policy to identify if you have coverage for a psychotherapist, psychologist, or social worker (RSW/MSW) and speak with your clinician about this during your first appointment.

Cancellation Policy

When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.

In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e. the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.

Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.

Aamir Subhan (he/him)

Registered Social Worker

Master of Social Work

About Aamir

I completed a Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Toronto in 2021, a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) from the University of Victoria in 2020 and an Honours Bachelor of Science (B.Sc., Hon.) in Neuroscience, Cell and Systems Biology from the University of Toronto in 2016. I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW), registration number 835844, with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).

Growing up in Brampton, Ontario, I watched my parents, immigrants from India, work tirelessly to provide for my siblings and me. I have lived as a settler in Toronto for the past decade now, with some time in Australia as well. Throughout my life, I have negotiated what it means to be queer and Muslim, to feel and be seen as different, both to myself and the world. This lived resistance informs my commitment to serve 2SLGBTQ+ communities through an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, decolonial, and intersectional lens.

My practice is trauma-informed and draws on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Narrative Therapy. Through my community and hospital experiences, I have supported people from many walks of life. I work with addictions, anxiety, depression, gender/sexuality, life transitions, mood, newcomers and refugees, palliative care, people living with HIV, racial trauma, sex and intimacy, and substance use / misuse.

As you step into therapy, you enter a space where you say hello to vulnerability. It can be scary and hopeful at the same time. But these steps, and those that follow later, are reflective of your strength. Please know, I do not take your trust for granted; it needs to be continuously earned and fostered. I believe that we all have it within ourselves and our communities to heal and grow. In your own time, please reach out to explore if your next step is here.

Maria Aurora Zimmerling (she/her)

Registered Psychotherapist

About Maria

I graduated from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and minor in Law. Upon graduation, I worked in the field of leadership development alongside Organizational Psychologists for over 20 years. In 2009 I decided to follow my passion for the human spirit's capacity for healing and wisdom, and began training as a Psychotherapist focusing on Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and working with anxiety and depression.

As a Psychotherapist I draw on many modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and spiritual/existential psychotherapy to help individuals identify limiting beliefs and outmoded coping mechanisms. In this way, my aim is to assist clients become more self-aware and understanding how their thoughts/emotions can be managed so that they can build richer, more rewarding lives.

I believe we all have coping abilities that have helped us to get to where we are now. Sometimes assistance is needed to develop these abilities so we can move forward in our lives joyfully. In a safe and confidential environment, I help clients share their story. I have worked with anxiety, depression, parenting issues, relationship issues, stress management, and helping individuals get back to gainful employment after a setback.

My clinical training is based in Mindfulness and Buddhist Psychology, Non-Violent Communication (NVC), and restorative circles (Way of Shambhala, 2007 to 2017).
