Private Sessions

Using neuroscience, psychedelics and spirituality you can heal your past to create your present. The following is what I offer:

Individual Psychotherapy

At Private Therapy Toronto we know that healing and expansion is necessary in order to move into a life of authenticity and purpose. Utilizing the latest research in neuroscience, metaphysics and spiritual practices you are guided through your crises and obstacles into awareness and understanding of the origins of your depression (pain), anxiety (fear), relationships (attachments) and moving to a place of consciousness and wholeness.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a form of therapy that has been extensively researched in healing past traumatic events that continue to bring disturbance and reaction in the present. In session clients are asked to focus on the specific event with attention given to the negative image, belief, and body feeling related to this event. Clients are then asked to focus on a positive belief that would indicate the issues was resolved. While focusing on the upsetting event, the therapist will begin sets of side-to-side eye movements and the client will be guided to notice what comes to mind after each set. Experiences include shifts in insight or changes in images, feelings, or beliefs regarding the past event.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapists in Training (Zoom online available in Ontario)

IFS is a form of therapy that connects the individual, the Self, to different parts of their internal system that are responsible for holding beliefs, behaviours, and ways of being. Some parts are adaptive and oriented to time and space, driving our successes and achievements. Others are holding past traumas, feelings of fear and shame trapped in the past and tethering us to our pain. And others still are tasked with protecting us from getting close to that pain, causing us to behave in extreme and maladaptive ways. This revolutionary and evidence based therapy provides a map and a model towards wholeness and harmony.

Therapist Consultation - The Outer Reaches of IFS

Supervision is available to therapists seeking support and education in regard to unattached burdens, legacy work and guides/passengers. Private Therapy Toronto has a focus and speciality in this area and unfortunately too many clinicians avoid this essential domain of healing. As a clinician you will expand your knowledge and be supported in leading your clients into the outer reaches of their internal system with Curiosity, Courage and Confidence.

It is recommended that therapists seeking consultation have completed at least the Stepping Stones IFS course offered by Derek Scott.  Consultation fee is $200 for private consult or $100 for shared session.

Therapy for Men

Therapy can be a safe place for men to work through issues of conflict, intimacy, or feelings of underachievement. When men experience pressure and stress they often don’t feel comfortable seeking support or sharing their challenges with colleagues, friends or family for fear of being perceived as unsuccessful or “weak”. Some men turn inwards, experiencing anxiety and depression, withdrawing from those they care about and sometimes turning to alcohol or drugs. Some men turn outwards, lashing out at others, their anger and irritability easily triggered by the slightest provocation. Most men fall somewhere in the middle of this spectrum while some find themselves going from one extreme to the other. Ultimately, more and more men are taking proactive steps and seeking private counselling regarding their professional and private lives. I offer a supportive and confidential space to explore your difficulties and challenges in order to more clearly carve out a path to resolution and health.
