I began as a clinical therapist/social worker and gained an array of therapeutic insights and skills using psychodynamic , solution focused, narrative, identity and anti-oppression approaches.
Are you struggling in certain areas in your life? Are you experiencing anxiety, insomnia or other emotional issues? Do you occasionally feel a sense of helplessness? Do family dynamics, partner/friend relationship, caring for an elderly parent add to your daily stress? Are you continually dealing with racial trauma, identity, work, and/or gender-based violence? Are you grieving the loss of a partner, family member or a friend? I will provide a non-judgmental space to talk through challenges that continue to plague your mind and wear you down physically and emotionally.

I have specialized in anxiety, depression and poor self esteem for 35 years, My theory base is analytical ( psychodynamic ), evidence based with excellent LONG TERM results.
Most of my clients have one parent who is self-centered. That has led me to specialize in ADULT CHILDREN OF NARCISSISTS. Areas of self-esteem that are affected are, not feeling lovable, taking care of others but not yourself, feeling you are bad, to blame, selfish, a bother etc. As a child of a narcissist I know how you feel and it is not good.. My work does not focus only on how to cope better, but how to get rid of the problem. An example is ANXIETY. Anxiety is often an UNCONSCIOUS response to feeling, old hurtful feelings, like HELPLESS, HUMILIATED (bullied), and ABANDONED. In healing these feelings you become less anxious.

Are you finding it hard to connect with yourself and others? Have you been feeling down, disinterested, withdrawn or anxious? Perhaps recent experiences have left you feeling crippled with self-doubt. Or maybe the best way to describe it is simply that you’re feeling stuck? I would like to help. Together we will identify persisting patterns of relating to the self and your environment that leave you feeling this way. We will chart a course to self-awareness and acceptance through alternative paths and choices. Using a psychodynamic approach, I create a safe space for us to explore difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Registered Psychotherapist, MDiv, RP, RCC, CCC
Verified
My primary modalities are Psychodynamic therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
A core belief that informs my approach to therapy is that there is an inherent goodness within all of us and that we are all seeking ways to realize and cultivate this goodness. Sometimes in this pursuit, we find ourselves stuck in a place that we never expected or anticipated (often not even by our own doing). In this place, it may seem like the harder we try, the deeper we burrow ourselves into somewhere we actually don’t want to be. My hope is that my work consists of coming alongside others who find themselves stuck in these places and collaborate to find ways out and make progress towards realizing the goodness inside.

Life can feel overwhelming at times. Uncertainty, unexpected challenges and self-doubt can weigh us down. Carrying such weight can cause us to experience fatigue, worry, sleepless nights, and unwanted behaviours, thoughts and emotions. Imagine what it would be like if some of that weight could be lifted. I offer compassionate care for people with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief and trauma. Based on an integrative mix of both person-centred and psychodynamic approaches, I endeavour to inspire compassionate self-understanding with an aim towards inner healing.

This is an experiential psychodynamic therapy that helps my clients to quickly get to the bottom of their issues and create a deeper understanding of their internal conflict.
I take an active stance in my sessions using more of a direct therapy approach. My goal is to work collaboratively with my clients while creating a safe space where they can have a profound relationship with themselves. I work on identifying and processing complex feelings that have been repressed sometimes for years, to get relief from symptoms such as anxiety and depression among other issues.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in North York, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
