Is there a tug inside you, aching for your life to be different or better? Conflict between your inner voice, that whispers its wisdom, and influential norms that impress you with what you “should” do? You may be questioning your sense of belonging in this world. Worries of whether you’re good/smart/capable enough. Existential concerns of whether you are doing yourself, or your spirit, justice. You may wish to free yourself from patterns learned in childhood, or the professional culture you now find yourself a part of. At heart, you wish to experience a peaceful sense of self, joyful relationships, and meaningful work.

"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.

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.

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.

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.
