About Mobius

Mobius is about living your life with more possibility

It would be easy for us to say that therapy is the solution to your problem – but therapy is the tool we use to help you get from where you are now, to where you want to be.

At Mobius Psychological Services, we use our lived experiences and extensive training to provide the starting point to healing.

What brought you to our door? The answer to this question is only one piece of the puzzle that we will explore as we work towards helping you heal from your emotional pain, find more calm in your day or take action on the ideas and goals you want to achieve.

We believe that on the other side of pain is meaning – we want to help you take the journey to live your possibilities.

Our Approach

These are more than the pillars of our business, these are the pillars of our lives.

Inclusion Matters

Everyone has a story, and you deserve to be heard. Whether you have experienced what it’s like to be marginalized due to your identity as an immigrant or an LGBTQIA2+ individual, or due to racial differences, at Mobius you will have a place. We believe that to belong means to be understood. We know first-hand the stress that immigrating brings and understand how you can lose your way. Regardless of your story, we provide a space that’s safe and free from judgment. We help you work through unfamiliar and overwhelming emotions and provide the guidance and support you need to build a life you can love.

Compassionate Care

Compassion is not just a feeling; it is a way of acting in the world. As therapists, we believe in deep and active listening, the way the Vietnamese monk, Thich Nhat Hahn describes it, where the sole purpose of listening is to understand the other and the sole intention is to reduce the other’s suffering. It is very important to us that you feel safe and heard. Our experienced therapists take the time to listen to you and understand your unique situation.

Strength-Based

We bring to our work the deep belief that there is an inner healer in all of us. Our job as therapists is to help you connect with and free that inner healer to do its work. You are stronger than you think, and with the right support, we believe that you will come to see in yourself what we see in you. Therapy should not just be about past problems, it should be about envisioning and creating future possibilities. Through our sessions, we recognize your individual strengths and help you tap into them to feel in control and create the life you want.

Who We Help

We provide therapy for individuals, couples, students, teens and kids in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.

If you’re stuck in behaviours or patterns that are keeping you from experiencing life fully; if you’ve tucked away your pain from the world, only to find yourself experiencing a level of irritability, fatigue, or an inability to sleep that is affecting your day; if you are struggling with stress, anxiety or a sense of loss that is taking it’s toll on your relationships, career or your life’s purpose – you’re not alone.

We believe pain is a door, not a wall, and we want to show you how to find the key.

Our Experience

We are dedicated to helping you build the foundation that will support your greatest potential. With over 50 years of combined experience, we have walked with our clients through the highest-highs and the lowest-lows on their path to healing. We offer therapy that comes from our lived experiences, skills, education as well as our deep immersion in wisdom traditions of East and West.

When you open the door to new possibilities, you can experience transformation
