****No longer accepting Clients****Life can be overwhelming, unfair and full of the unexpected. As we seek change in our own behaviour and circumstances, we are often met with unexpected pain, anxiety, and anger that can be difficult to manage. Psychotherapy is a process in which we address obstacles in life and set goals to healing, understanding and moving forward. There is not challenge in life, big or small, that doesn't deserve the thoughtful reflection of therapy.

“In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way." - Yoda. Welcome to my profile, and congratulations on starting the first part of your process by looking for someone to help you move forward. A good client-therapist fit is essential for opening up. So I urge you to please click on the Website link so you can get a better feel for my tone and approach. I come from a strong academic and training background, but therapy isn't as clinical as you may imagine. My clients frequently remark on how opening up is much more comfortable than they anticipated.

Our emotions and body sensations offer us important insights into what is working or not in our lives. Paying attention to our thought patterns and the messages we receive from our body/mind helps us to direct our lives to increasing happiness, calm, and fulfillment. It can be difficult to do this on our own, especially at times of feeling a loss of control or intense distress and confusion. A therapist can be a healing mirror and the relationship can provide a safe connection in order to explore life issues together.

In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). Particularly, ones who have trauma, body image issues, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and creative interventions.

Sometimes I ask a lot of questions in order to understand, to the best of my ability, what things are like for you. In working together to help me understand your story, usually what happens is that things start to make more sense for you too. Confusion often gives way to clarity. Feelings such as anxiety, anger, depression and isolation often subside as well.

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.
