Description

My name is Kristina Virro and my mission is to help people feel less stuck in life and reduce mental health stigma overall. I've honoured this mission through opening my own clinic, Fresh Insight, which provides psychotherapy and nutritional counselling to individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages and backgrounds. I'm presently offering in-person sessions out of our locations in Markham & Vaughan and virtual sessions via Zoom. 

My patients have described me as being a "straight shooter" who isn't afraid to ask some of the harder questions—in a compassionate, kind-spirited way!
