Maria Isabel Toro-Vidal
MSW, RSW
Associate Therapist

Hello! My name is Maria Isabel Toro-Vidal and I am an Associate Therapist at Thrive Counselling. I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Manitoba, graduating with a Master of Social Work in 2014.  I am registered with the Manitoba College of Social Workers and a member of both the Manitoba and Canadian Association of Social Workers.

Throughout my professional career, I have had the experience to work with children/families from war-affected countries, children/adults with special needs, and individuals and families that have experienced various forms of trauma. My approach to therapy is client centered, as clients are the experts of their own lives and experiences. Some of the issues that I specialize in include immigration (cultural integration), trauma, PTSD, grief, loss, children/adults with special needs, family violence, and crisis intervention.  I work with children of all ages and their families as well as individual adults. My therapeutic practice incorporates a diverse set of theories including emotionally focused therapy, attachment therapy, child play therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused approach.

As a therapist, I provide a warm, authentic, encouraging, and insightful environment as we walk together through a variety of experiences, emotions, and challenges. As an immigrant, I have a deep appreciation of how culture shapes our lives. Using culture as a focal point provides me with the opportunity to learn about life challenges through this lens.  I understand that our past influences our present, and despite these challenges, it should not dictate our future. Our life experiences, positive or negative, are at the core of who we are today and can be effective tools in creating who we can be tomorrow.

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of a day saying “I will try again tomorrow” (Mary Ann Radmacher)

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring new places and learning about various cultures and beliefs.  I also enjoy cooking and spending time with my loved ones, reading books and walking my very sweet dog. 

Comunidad habla hispana,
Atraves de los servicios de terapia, mi prioridad es que te sientas cómodo y en confianza en un ambiente cálido, seguro y donde te puedes expresar en tu propio idioma. Tengo más de 10 años de experiencia clínica y un posgrado como Asistente Social. Durante las sesiones terapéuticas , mi trabajo se enfoca en explorar los sentimientos, emociones y experiencias de cada persona.
En mi trabajo clínico uso diferentes modalidades terapéuticas incluyendo Terapia de Apego, Terapia Humanista, Terapia Sistémica y Terapia Breve Centrada en Soluciones. Estas estrategias, teoría, y tu propio conocimiento son usados para enfrentar Dificultades de Adaptación, Relaciones Interpersonales, Reajuste Migratorio, Trauma, Trastorno de Estrés Postraumático (TEPT) Duelo, Soledad y Aislamiento,
 Tú eres único, tus experiencias de vida y tu proceso de inmigración tambien es único, yo estoy aquí para ayudarte a identificar las herramientas que necesitas para alcanzar tus metas y el bienestar de tu familia.
 
I look forward to working with you.
