Iwona S. Florianowicz
I am committed and strive to provide effective and holistic therapy for you by helping you feel empowered and encouraged to make positive changes in all aspects of your life. I’m prepared to work with you as a team and respond to every single thing that you bring to therapy. I am comfortable with deeply distressing issues that you might choose to explore and committed to work with you no matter how difficult that might be for both you and I.
To help me understand and to help you in the process of change, I found of significant benefit to be well informed on a wide array of concerns and to integrate evidence-based interventions that we can collaboratively chose to implement in your therapeutic process.

Specialization and Experience
Iwona has been working in the field of counselling and psychology since 2008, and has been practicing psychotherapy since 2012. She has extensive experience working with clients from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds in various settings such as educational institutions, mental health community and private practice.
Iwona’s professional qualifications and experience has not only been influenced by her professional growth but as well as by her own personal growth through her own life journey. Iwona’s country of origin is Poland, since the age of 15 she has moved to the USA to join her family where she experienced the end of her first marital relationship and remarried. Along with her husband and two children she moved to different counties in search of a better future and opportunities – she lived in Czech Republic, and the United Kingdom – currently residing in the province of Ontario after moving from the province of Saskatchewan. Her work with you is influenced by Iwona’s own experiences and challenges that shaped her deep understanding of what it means to keep rebuilding your family home, loosing a job, adapting to new cultural customs, challenges and transitions due to change, end of relationships and building new ones, loss and bereavement and making sense of who you are and where you are coming from.
