Transforming Suffering into Growth
Online Therapy in Ontario
There are many reasons why people seek out psychotherapy. It is a common belief that therapy is only for those in crisis. This is far from the truth and in fact, many people find that psychotherapy is the missing piece in their wellness routine.
Psychotherapy is a safe place where you can express and understand your feelings, and work through issues in your life to gain clarity without judgment. Talking through your problems and emotions with a licensed psychotherapist allows you to make connections, gain insight and find solutions.
If you have experienced loss, if you have been in painful relationships, if you are experiencing panic attacks or struggling with your anger, let me help you. If you have experienced a traumatic event, whether you have been diagnosed with PTSD or not, there is a place for you. If you are feeling stress or anxiety about work, life, school, kids, or any number of things, your problems matter. If you have been using substances to self medicate, to numb your pain or just to zone out and want to explore other options without judgment, I am here to listen. If your struggles are related to family dysfunction, unresolved issues of the past, gender, sexuality, body image or anything I have not mentioned, there is a safe space for you here.
What are the Benefits of Psychotherapy?
In psychotherapy sessions, a therapist may work with a client to identify recurring patterns in relationships, emotions, or behaviours.
Psychotherapy provides you with the tools to understand yourself and others. With a commitment to therapy and a positive therapeutic relationship, insights are gained that equip clients with psychological skills that grow stronger with use. The benefits of therapy not only endure after therapy ends but increase with time.
