Maria Veronica Caracciolo

MA (Hons.), Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

They say our greatest weakness lies in giving up! We have all been there. I decided that if life was going to be difficult, I would become its greatest “warrior” and teach others to do the same. Too often we use our armour to hide our inner selves, rather than see it as our strength which only comes from taking a risk, facing our fears, taking a step forward, and learning that every battle is won with wisdom. I am here to empower you to take that chance on yourself — your mind is a powerful force, but you are its master. 

Through various forms of therapy, one can explore different perspectives, coping skills, and motivators to establish better relationships; self-esteem and self-direction; deal with complicated family or couple dynamics; face a significant crisis or transition; manage substance use or addiction; and collaboratively make cognitive and behavioral changes to better emotional, mental, and even physical health!

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), I achieved a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology,  and an Honors Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto.  I have a distinct interest in trauma and grief therapy, group and couples therapy, and have over 20 years’ experience working with children and young adults with cognitive and/or behavioural issues. I also provide individual narrative therapy to facilitate your journey to self-awareness and emotional regulation; manage anxiety, depression, and stress; and learn to make healthier choices. I assess and treat mental and emotional disorders as well as behavioural problems. I am a firm believer that if there is a “way in” there is always a “way out”, regardless of how you got stuck in the first place!


I integrate various assessments and interventions including emotionally focused therapy (EFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) mindfulness, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical-behaviour therapy (DBT), EMDR for trauma reprocessing, psychoanalytical or psychodynamic Therapy (both long-term and short-term support), and The Gottman Model for couples among others. I am certified from The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine to work with core issues of abandonment and self-esteem.


As an empath and a daughter of immigrants myself, I practice cross-cultural counselling and work through a compassionate and humanistic lens. I can deliver therapy in English and in Italian. I look forward to meeting you and providing you with a comfortable and supportive space where you do not feel alone.
