Making sense of your behaviours and experiences can help you become a better version of yourself. Life and the relationships we form have a way of launching feelings and experiences our way that we're not always prepared to handle. Guilt that haunts our past, buried beliefs that enhance anxieties or despair that paralyzes us from moving forward can create negative behaviours, feelings, and thoughts. The way you live and approach your life can be shifted into a more positive direction to allow you to increase your self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-awareness. Be a better version of yourself.

We humans suffer because we don’t get what we want and get what we don’t want. Most of us want to find a quick cure to our emotional pain. Quick cures sedate the pain which is the source of Wisdom, Compassion, Understanding and Real Love. My approach is for the person who wants to answer the timeless questions of: “Who am I?”, “Where did I come from?”, “Where am I going?” from their own depths and to their full understanding. It is in this journey, through self-inquiry, that they become happier, wiser and more compassionate.

I don't eclipse the parent but help them to become the most important -- influential and trusted -- force in the lives of their kids. I also help kids/teens struggling with attention and screens, big emotions (anger, fear, grief & shame) and issues around confidence and social dynamics. Often, I'm first approached by committed moms who are at their wit's end. I also believe in re-engaging dads and in helping men to develop relationship muscles they need to help the family thrive!

Family Therapy Counsellors
If you're looking for family therapy in Toronto or for a Toronto family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Toronto using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counselling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Toronto you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Toronto and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Toronto or family therapy in Toronto.
