About Zeba Luxmore, MA, RP

I am a Registered Psychotherapist in Scarborough, Ontario with 15+ years of clinical experience.

I hold a Masters in Counselling Psychology (2004) and am a registered member with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.

My Approach

My style as a therapist is warm, open and accepting. I believe that one of the most important components for therapeutic change is that trust exists between the client and therapist and I always aim to create a safe space to facilitate this.  

My theoretical orientation is primarily Psychodynamic, though I also utilize other modalities and frameworks in my work including:

  • Trauma informed
  • Attachment-based
  • Person-centered
  • Feminist
  • Anti-oppressive
  • Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioural therapy (DBT)
  • Solution focused brief therapy

Areas of Expertise

The majority of my therapeutic practice has been with adolescents and adults. Some of the most common challenges I have treated clients include:

  • Mental health concerns
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Life Transitions
  • Grief/Loss
  • Impacts of Trauma
  • Sense of self (identity, self esteem, confidence)
