Pastoral Counselor Therapists in Toronto, ON
"I counseled clients at non-profit organizations and hospital Psychiatry Department (1996-2014) in Toronto. Some of my clients had stress, mental health issues (e.g. Depression, Eating Disorders), emotional-behavioral issues and/or problems with the criminal justice system (e.g. assault, mischief, DUI). The symptoms of stress often affect personal functioning in marriage, family relationships, work and/or social settings. My mission is to help individuals to reconcile with themselves, family and the society. Through counseling, I strive to guide individuals on the road to learning self-sustainable coping skills for managing one's life and relationships positively."

"Sadness, depression, anxiety or anger can interfere with our enjoyment of life and keep us stuck. Our inability to tolerate these feelings can lead to addictive patterns or behaviours which threaten to take over our life. Sometimes we establish a pattern of unhealthy relationships and can't understand how we have ended up there, once again. My style is supportive, compassionate, warm and honest. I will provide you with helpful feedback about how you get in your own way and I will work with you to find a new path that fits for you."
"It is said that two heads are better than one but for many this is hard to accept. You may be very successful in certain parts of your life and this may make it easier for you to push other, troubling issues aside. This strategy never works indefinitely and ultimately your issues will begin to manifest in other areas of your life.Therapy can help. It will leave you better able to understand your challenges and, perhaps more importantly, to face them with new vigor."
"More than a listener, my intention is to actively engage clients in an experiential process to move through the difficulties they are facing and find healing.

I help you to unstick your stuckness, and to connect to your happiness in the here and now. I help clients find meharmony. Explore the relationship you have with yourself and experience the positive ripple effect."

"We're born into a world of stories about reality and about us. Our friends and our parents tell them to us. School, work and media tell them to us. And we start telling them to ourselves. In a time of mass media deception, false role models, unreal images, and dysfunctional families, our inner truth gets more and more hidden. The re-discovery of who we are is crucial for living a meaningful life. In Groundwork we become co-coonspirators in finding the real story about you, finding the authentic grounds of your existence, and helping you choose to be real."

"Certified for children, adolescents and adults, I see people from ages 5 through 60. The combination of Clinical Psychology and School Psychology covers the spectrum of life's challenges.

Examples are child-parent attachment struggles, behaviour, learning disabilities, mood disorders, PTSD, ADD/ ADHD, psychological aspects of sleep, school behaviour, mood, OCD, language disorders (together with a speech-language pathologist), developmental delays, school motivation, concussion and developmental trauma such as in internationally adopted children."
"In our lives, we often find ourselves stuck. We find it difficult to stop feeling, thinking, or behaving in ways that are no longer useful. Our interpretations of past experiences, beliefs about ourselves, others and the world, can sometimes hold us back from enjoying the present and imagining a better future. We want things to change but are uncertain how to change them. We need time, space, and guidance to transform ourselves and forge a new path. As a psychotherapist, I facilitate your journey and guide you towards your personal goals by empowering you to remove emotional and psychological roadblocks."
"In psychotherapy, I foster a motivation for change and strengthen hope that things can get better and life can feel worthwhile again.

I have extensive training and experience working with individuals struggling with the long-term effects of trauma, abuse, and neglect, including the assessment and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Dissociative Disorders."

"There can be a whole lot of feelings about seeing a therapist. It can feel daunting, frightening, and even embarrassing. Beginning therapy can also be an unimagined relief. It was for me when I began my own therapy almost twenty years ago. Reading these profiles means you have already taken an important first step in seeking that relief from whatever unhappiness or confusions you are feeling in your life and that you know it can be different. We are all an accumulation of our experiences. It is how we live with those experiences that can be the cause of so much pain in our lives. Therapy does not make those experiences go away, but it can help develop a new relationship to and understanding of them, within which we can find ways to live with more joy, vitality and ease in our lives."
"Are you wanting something better, but don't know where to start? I can help you get unstuck, find answers, solve problems and feel better. Whatever is holding you back, I can help you explore it, understand it and put it behind you so you can get on with enjoying life. I'll watch for your negative patterns and in my direct-but-gentle style I'll help you recognize them and change them. You'll find me patient, open-minded and easy to talk to, especially with sensitive topics that you may be ashamed of or embarrassed about."
"The decision to begin therapy is one that takes courage. I want to commend you on taking this first step and searching for someone that can help. Perhaps you have been experiencing feelings of anxiety, sadness, confusion, a lack of motivation or other feelings that just don't feel right...or maybe these feelings describe someone that you know and care about. I believe I can help. And I hope you will take some time to look through this website and consider the counselling services that I have to offer. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have."

""I believe that people have the answers to most of their problems. Sometimes, however, there is something -- perhaps some emotional baggage or an obstacle of some kind -- that has obstructed their view of these answers. In my work, I help clients to clear away the obstacle(s) so that they can once again see the answers for themselves and move forward with their lives."

That might mean figuring out what you want (harder than you think), making a career change (both scary and exciting), dreaming up a business of your own (where to start?), or taking it to the next level (gut-driven strategy). In short, I help people get to the place they aspire to be - at work and in life...because everyone (yes, even you!) can pursue mind-blowing work that thrills and delights."
