About us

Here with you every step of the way

Denise Costa,
Therapist at Port Credit Counselling (Mississauga)

My journey toward helping others began as a physician, and my medical training has been invaluable in my psychotherapy practice. I chose to pursue psychotherapy because I believe we can all use support navigating life’s challenges. I specialize in divorce and grief therapy for adults, because I have personal experience with both. It’s important to me that you know I can support you from a place of both professional training and lived experience.
