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 here, in North America, 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.

At Work in Progress we understand how hard it can be to find the right therapist. Perhaps you have tried therapy before but never really "clicked" with the person sitting across from you? Or maybe this is your first time seeking support but you find it hard to imagine opening up to a stranger? Life is hard enough as it is, especially during a pandemic. We experience pressure to perform from all angles and this can manifest as burnout, fatigue or lack of motivation. Let us take one thing off your plate.

I approach therapy with the understanding that one size doesn’t fit all, which allows us to collaborate on an individualized treatment plan that works for you. Sometimes this means starting with a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment to identify your child’s learning strengths and needs. I can also collaborate directly with you to explore your own parenting style or stuck points.

The reality is that changes are presented to us outside of our control and we find ourselves faced with the task of making decisions and choices that will decide the course of our future. These untimely decisions and choices can leave us feeling bewildered and disoriented. To complicate things further, we can find ourselves stuck in emotional and behavioural patterns that inhibit and hold us back from making the decisions we would like to or that would be best for us. Sometimes it’s difficult to even know what we would like to do or what is best for us. What should you aim towards?

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 West Toronto, Toronto or for a West Toronto, Toronto 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 West Toronto, Toronto, and play counsellors.
