Hi! My name is Diana Freitas. I am a Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist and owner of Mind Ease Therapy. From an early age I have enjoyed listening to the stories and experiences of others and have been drawn to learning about the human mind.

When I learned about the role of a therapist, I knew it would be a good fit for my natural abilities and interest. This led me to completing a Bachelor Degree in Psychology at York University, followed by a Master of Social Work Degree at the University of Toronto. 

I have since been providing counselling and psychotherapy services for 10 years. I find it a true privilege to support individuals during their most vulnerable and difficult times. When working with clients my approach is collaborative, curious, and compassionate. I invite you to take a chance not only on the therapy process, but also on yourself to see the life that is possible.

How I can help


Persistent feelings of apprehension, uneasiness, or worry, often accompanied by sensations such as increased heart rate, muscle tension, and restlessness. 


Persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities, often accompanied by physical symptoms such as changes in sleep, appetite, and energy levels.


 A state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged and excessive stress, often from work-related demands or persistent challenges, leading to a sense of reduced accomplishment, cynicism, and a decline in overall performance and well-being.

Interpersonal Challenges

Communication problems, conflicts, trust issues, and difficulties in forming or maintaining relationships. Occurs in various settings, such as personal relationships, family dynamics, friendships, and professional environments. 

Life Transition

Significant changes, both expected or unexpected, that may involve a shift in roles, routines, relationships, or environments. They often bring a mix of emotions, challenges, and opportunities for personal growth. 


A complex and natural response to loss (of a loved one,  a relationship, a job, or a major life change). It involves a range of emotional, psychological, and physical reactions, including sadness, shock, denial, anger, guilt, and a sense of emptiness.
