Joanna Tonken


My name is Joanna Tonken. I am a graduate of McGill University and I have continued my training in Psychotherapy at The Transformational Arts College. I am a practicing therapist-in-training while applying to the CRPO (College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario). I am accepting new clients at a reduced rate. 

I practice several forms of traditional therapy. The main modalities I use in session include: Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have training in Transpersonal Psychotherapy. My holistic approach to therapy engages the mind-body-spirit connection to create a balanced future.

My practice respects that each of us has a great depth of wisdom. It may not feel this way but you are the master of your experience and the narrator of your story. I teach my clients to have compassion for the many parts of themselves and to recognize their value. By taking ownership of their stories, I encourage my clients to feel empowered and to move forward confidently with intention.

While these tasks may seem simple, they can be difficult to do alone. I provide a supportive environment for you to understand what is holding you back from realizing your potential.

As someone who has been through therapy, I understand and empathize with the hesitations people have when they approach counselling for the first time. With this awareness, I greet you and welcome any questions you may have.
