Adrian Pasen

I provide support to those seeking a safe, open, non-judgmental space to explore inner strengths and resources to lead a more hopeful, fulfilling life. My particular interests include counselling those affected by addictions and co-occurring disorders, grief, trauma, sexuality, PTSD, hoarding, unexpected DNA discoveries and driving anxieties.

I have always been intrigued by how we navigate life’s obstacles, challenges and contexts and so gained a B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Toronto. I then went on to study publishing, building on my interest in interpersonal communication and the power of words. My love of language and my interest in how we tell our stories led to me completing a certificate in Narrative Therapy through Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. I also have varying degrees of fluency in Hebrew, German and French. I am currently a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology candidate through Yorkville University.

I have worked with many different groups and many different life stages from helping women refugees in Berlin with cultural adjustment to employment counselling for new immigrants and youth to empowering girls as a drum instructor at Toronto’s Girls Rock Camp.

After several years as an employment counsellor, I worked in a broad array of jobs and environments from publishing and arts administration to translation and alternative health, before realizing that I wanted to return to counselling. Having struggled with my own mental health challenges, I have a unique perspective on how we can continue to thrive, learning to separate ourselves from the “problem.” As a therapist, I aim to meet you where you are at as a client, acknowledging and validating existing and past challenges while collaboratively building on alternate stories and new realities. You are your own expert, and I am eager to learn your unique story.

If you would like to get in touch, please email or phone. I would be delighted to connect with you. Fees are based on a sliding scale.
