I provide psychotherapy which is grounded on listening and understanding. There is much for me to hear before I get the full picture of what is going on in your life, and lots to discover for you and me together before the time comes for my expert advice. My main discovery of the last decade is that people can come to many therapists, for many times and yet not become ready ever to say openly what is the matter. It is why I know my clients need time to assume that I am really on their side. To figure out, bit by bit, what the possible advice or solution can be and then help you to do that we decide to do, I have my basic training in client-centered psychotherapy (“by Carl Rogers”), and I am a very, very orthodox Rogerian therapist. In addition, I have studied cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectic-behavioral therapy, music psychotherapy and non-directive child play psychotherapy. I will apply in your situation that which matches your particular needs. Also, I realized that some ideas of psychoanalysis, Adlerian psychotherapy, Existential therapy and Logotherapy can be helpful as well.

Are you or your child struggling? Are you concerned about handling your emotions? Does your child have difficulty regulating their emotions, controlling anger, or having social difficulties? Perhaps you are worried about how your child is coping with recent changes in the family, such as separation or divorce? You don’t have to be alone! Parenting is the most invested relationship one can partake in. There are many challenges involved in guiding little people towards becoming adults and life can force families to face events that impact children's ability to function successfully within their daily environments.

Life is often disorienting. Struggling to find sound footing in the seeming chaos often leaves us feeling lonely, confused, and overwhelmed. This can be paralyzing, leaving us unsure of what to do or where to turn. In the midst of this, reaching out and seeking support may seem "simple" but is often the most courageous thing we can do. Therapy can provide the space for you to share your story - with all its simplicity and complexity - and to be seen, heard, known, and cared for by another. This difficult yet wonderful process often lays the foundation for greater healing and freedom.

People experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways; there is no one "right" way of thinking, learning, behaving and being. Our uniquely individual and neurodiverse brains are wired to work differently. These differences affect our perceptions, responses and social interactions. I strive to ensure that clients feel heard and seen and accepted for exactly who they are and where they are, at any point in their lives.

Parenting is hard, and no matter how much we ask, it doesn’t come with a manual. Childhood anxiety, depression, ADHD, teenage angst and everyday challenges are on the rise and learning where to go for help can be overwhelming. Despite our efforts, the resulting feelings of frustration and despair are very real. I have been there myself and understand that, like with learning any new skill, parenting takes work. Learning tools and applying them consistently while faced with numerous challenges requires support, compassion and gentle guidance. What's important to know is that you are not alone and that there is support available.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in North York or for a North York play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in North York, and play counsellors.
