"Something is wrong, but we can't quite grasp what. We search for a better understanding of ourselves in order to solve our emotional and psychological discontent. We think about the events of the day, relationships, childhood and the past. Still, something doesn't seem right. We act and feel in ways that create discord. I provide psychotherapy for people who are interested in looking for the deeper meaning behind the discomfort in their lives. The goal is to be able to have more meaningful relationships, fulfilling work and societal contributions, as well as the capacity to bear the difficulties that are part of living fully."

"Angry, sad, confused or deeply lost, being with someone with years of experience in being with folks can matter. Do you just need someone to really hear you deeply and let you know that you are on the right path, that your soul is guiding you? Through getting to know you with words, deep relaxation, dream work, creative art work and body work we will make sense of this together/dynamically. Sometimes, you will just want clear feedback and I will give that too. Practically, as a Registered Nurse and Psychotherapist I bring a health care perspective and soul exploration."

" Jungian analysis is a form of working with psyche. It is an explorative non judgemental approach that is based on the concept of a balance between conscious and unconscious aspects of the individual. Analysts work with unconscious images such as dreams. It is considered to be a depth psychology as it attempts to incorporate the unconscious, or unknown facets of the greater whole personality. The goal is greater self awareness, and therefore an expansion of the personality. This is individuation."

Peer Relationships in Toronto

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Toronto

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Toronto

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Toronto or for a Toronto peer relationship Counsellor these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counselling in Toronto and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Counsellors, peer relationship psychologists in Toronto and peer relationship counsellors.

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.
