Meet Eva Muharib, Ph.D. Candidate

Eva Muharib, PhD Candidate, works with adults who are struggling to cope with stressful life experiences and distressing emotions.  Eva is particularly interested in working with individuals dealing with:

– Fear, anxiety, and worry (including OCD)

– Post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and other difficult life experiences

– Chronic pain and adjustment to illness

Eva strives to offer a therapeutic space that is collaborative and non-judgmental. She balances understanding and accepting clients as they are with promoting positive change that is aligned with their goals and values. Eva has extensive experience working with clients at all ability levels and thus has experience adapting her therapy approach to different clients’ learning and thinking styles.

Eva draws from several therapeutic approaches that seek to change the relationship clients have with their thoughts and emotions, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness-based approaches. Therapy is tailored to the needs of the individual client and their goals.

Eva is in the final stages of completing her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at York University.  Her recent professional experiences include positions at Toronto Western Hospital, the York University Psychology Clinic, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, and Alberta Health Services.
