You may feel dissatisfied with your life. Perhaps you have a difficult relationship with someone you care about. Or maybe you experience anxiety, anger, frequent stress or even depression.
You may have gone through a traumatic life event that has left you feeling either overwhelmed with difficult emotions or completely detached from them. You wonder if there is something wrong with you as a result, or maybe you are in search of ways to better cope with all that has happened.
You have arrived at a point in life where you realize that addictive behaviors such as uncontrollable use of alcohol, drugs, prescription medicine, or gambling, excessive shopping, binge eating, including co-dependency (the feeling that you ought to change other people) - are no longer helpful and are adding to your existing problems.
Your life may be chaotic, stressful or you are in transition. You may be suffering from loss or feel fundamentally restless.
I believe people have the innate capacity to self-understanding and psychological health. My own personal therapy and spiritual journey have been invaluable experiences and have shaped the holistic therapeutic approach I use in my practice to help you discover a natural pathway toward healing that is effective and lasting.
I was born in Romania, graduated from the University of Bucharest with a Master of Science degree in Engineering and moved to Canada at the age of 33. The loss I experienced by leaving behind my homeland and my professional career opened up the space for a new beginning. After a period of soul searching through this transition, moving forward meant creating a new meaningful life for myself.
My therapeutic approach draws on training in Client Centered Psychotherapy, Bioenergetics, and Energy/Spiritual Healing studied at the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto. In addition to my core training at the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto, I have expanded my professional skills by completing the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training in Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory at Ryerson University and the Addiction Care Training at McMaster University.
I work with individuals, couples, and families who struggle with the consequences of addiction, anxiety, depression, and frequently related medical issues.
I look forward to developing a caring and professional relationship with you, and helping you move toward greater inner peace, self-acceptance and a stronger sense of self.
