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.

"HEAL THE SOURCE" Therapy: Are you feeling symptoms of anxiety, depression, lost in direction, low self-esteem, financial and relationship troubles? And are you unsure as to why you are feeling this way? Would you like to change certain behaviours but can't seem to move forward? With "HEAL THE SOURCE" Therapy, we connect directly with the core source of the issue (usually stemming from childhood) that is always linked to an emotion through exploratory questioning, engaging the unconscious mind with empathy and compassion. Once we acknowledge the source, we can begin to work with creating new ways of being and integration.

I've come to this professional life as a therapist after years of teaching English (ESL) and working as a professional musician. Many of us these days are feeling depressed and/or anxious about life and how to move forward. We are looking for direction in our lives and relief from our problems, big and small. I know that it requires courage to trust another with your story, but there is so much to be gained from speaking with a trained listener. Together, we can work to discover a deeper sense and better understanding of who you are as a person. When you're ready, I'll be ready, and we can work to change your life for the better.

The therapeutic encounter fosters acceptance of what has, or has not happened to you in your life. It's a transformative experience that allows you to know yourself profoundly and helps you move forward in your life. I use the psychoanalytic approach, which is based on working through your internal conflicts and puzzling self-sabotaging behaviours. Using dreams, free association and working with the "here and now" of our relationship, we work together to address what prompted you to seek help.

Life can seem truly overwhelming at times, especially in our day and age when global concerns may compound our more personal stressors. Many people have carried the weight of distressing, sometimes traumatic, events with them throughout life, only to find one day that this weight has become crushing. Even those who have gone through life with relative ease may suddenly feel overwhelmed by difficult situations, such as physical or mental illness, the death of a loved one, relationship or parenting problems, divorce or other life transitions.

Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.

Our efforts to protect ourselves from painful feelings often lead to greater suffering. Fleeing from our emotional truth, we unconsciously perpetuate the very distress we seek to avoid, repeating unhealthy relationships or self-destructive patterns of living. We may find ourselves overwhelmed by anxiety, anger, despair or emptiness, feeling like our lives are not our own. It takes courage to explore our feeling-life and face the emotional truth of our past and present. I offer a safe, reliable and uniquely human environment in which to cultivate future possibilities of integration, spontaneity, creativity and self-realization, to fully inhabit life.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Central Toronto, Toronto, 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 Central Toronto, Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.
