Talk Therapy in Toronto

Talk therapy benefits

Therapy is well recognized as a tool for overcoming pain from your past which may show up as anxiety, depression or addictions. It can also help you define your goals by clarifying who you are and what you want from life. You don’t have to have had a major trauma or life event to benefit from therapy as it can support and help foster better emotional wellness in your daily life.

Talking with a professional can offer you
alternative perspectives to your thoughts and moods and how you relate to others and can offer feedback and insight on how your emotions and thinking are impacting you.

By being
proactive about your mental health, you can address issues as they arise so they don’t become bigger problems.

I can offer you relief from your symptoms, help you
feel like yourself again and restore your quality of life.

If this resonates with you please reach out to me to
schedule a free consult.
Could you use someone to talk to, who really gets you? Someone who understands and can offer you their ear and a perspective that might just make things easier to bear.

If you have thoughts, feelings, moods and actions that are adversely affecting your day-to-day life, relationships and the ability to enjoy life,
you could benefit from therapy.

While friends and family can offer support or give advice —
this is not therapy and you can be honest with your therapist without having to worry about what others think or offending anyone.

I am truly interested in how you are doing when I ask you. I am also trained to notice and understand what you say, how you say it and what you might omit — which helps me help you.

It is a common
misconception that something must be seriously ‘wrong’ with your mental health in order to benefit from therapy, and although those who do experience mental health challenges can certainly benefit, many people find it to be helpful to have therapy at some point in their lives.

We can all use a safe place to talk openly and confidentially, receive support through our everyday challenges, discover and expand our sense of self and the ability to be in relationship with others.

Psychotherapy can be
short-term (a few sessions), dealing with immediate issues, or long-term (months or years), dealing with longstanding and complex issues. Research has shown that people who receive psychotherapy experience symptom relief and are better able to function in their lives.

My main tools when working with clients are based in
talk therapy and the arts which include The Clearing Method, Compassionate Inquiry, Expressive Arts and Dreamwork. I offer a blend of psychotherapeutic services that tap into the broad training I have received and are based on my clients’ presenting issues, their goals for therapy and their treatment preferences.

I enjoy working
collaboratively with each person in the exploration of their unique inner worlds and offer empathic undivided attention and care.
