I have had the pleasure of working with Doina for the past 9 months. I have really valued her work as a counsellor and art therapist. She is a very empathetic listener and, as well, she offers a wealth of knowledge and practical strategies. I highly recommend Doina for your counselling needs.


Doina has been more than a counsellor and the experience has been very special. She first tried to truly learn about myself, underneath all the hesitation and troubles. This really helped me to not only trust her, but also to realize the strength and beauty in me to really open up, and be motivated to feel better. One of her approaches involves translating feelings to sketches or making analogies to abstract metaphors. This approach has been a wonderful experience to communicate and realize things I could not conceptualize before. Working with Doina is not just having counselling sessions to fix things but also realizing how strong I am to be able to make changes. Doina is truly sincere and amazing. I hope many more people will find the beauty in them and, Doina will help you.

Sometimes I felt like it was magic. Through the simple exercises, I was able to see my world through a different perspective. It's a gift that keeps giving as I use the techniques that I learned in my sessions with Doina in my day to day life. When I put things onto the paper, I took them out of this 'unknown' ' intangible' messy place in my head and made it something we could discuss. In this way, I could see things from a 3rd party perspective and find patterns that I'd never seen before. It is so satisfying. Thank you Doina!


At some point in my life, I felt that I needed help to process my thoughts, emotions and feelings. I was overwhelmed, and I was not being my best self or best friend, which made me feel stuck inside my head, in the past and in my life. I knew I needed someone, a professional who would help me find myself. Someone that could listen to and reflect with me, giving me tools and techniques that would go beyond what I already knew or was doing. After trying to find the right fit for a while: doing yoga, learning the Alexander technique, and trying different counsellors, I found Doina. I knew from our first session that we were a match! She was able to take my hand and show me the way, the path that was already there but that I had forgotten how to walk through it. She shows me every session that I know the way and more than I think. She gives me that confidence, and it feels like growing. Doina has also given me essential tools that are part of my life now. I've, for example, discovered how much I enjoy profound creative work. I never saw myself as a creative person or someone that could paint. It turns out I have more inside myself than I thought; I just couldn't see it. I highly recommend Doina for her fantastic quality of being a caring professional full of knowledge, metaphors, imagination, resources and tools. She is fully equipped to help in a compassionate, non-judgemental way leading to self-understanding and self-growth.
