"I know it can be a little overwhelming searching for the right support. Chances are you've been doing your best to figure it out on your own and now you're ready- or at least curious- to see how therapy can help you make and feel the changes you're looking for. I work specifically with adult children of alcoholics, co-dependency and perfectionism as well as clients with a history of depression, poor self-esteem, and anxiety. We'll work together to help you gain the skills, understanding and self-acceptance needed to create positive change."

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in 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 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.
