"Are you feeling over-burdened by things we all struggle with from time to time? Are you feeling paralyzed by indecision, loneliness, anxiety, rejection, grief, fear, anger, or sadness? Therapy is a powerful way to face the difficulties inherent in being human. Although many of us learn to avoid pain, few of us learn the road to more lasting relief. Together, we will bring clarity to your inner thoughts, feelings and hopes as you actualize a more peaceful and purposeful life. Drawing from my training and experience, we'll devise a unique plan to develop strategies toward achieving your goals. "

"Anxiety, intrusive thoughts, & emotion or behaviour difficulties can be extremely isolating, leading to feelings of shame and secrecy. Everyday "normal" functions can feel almost impossible. Things as necessary as eating, moving, & relationships can feel confusing, overwhelming, or scary. It may feel like your nervous system is hijacked & you react in unintended ways. One's inner world becomes chaos, while those outside say "it's in your head". Trauma informed therapy recognizes that experiences shape our symptoms/coping strategies. Working together we calm the nervous system, develop new ways to cope, and discover new ways of being"

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in M5S, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in M5S are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M5S you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M5S and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M5S or family therapy in M5S.
