Sliding Scale and Low-Cost Therapists
There comes a time for each of us when looking away from our problems or ignoring our needs stops being an effective way to live our life. When the sadness, stress, anxiety, anger or confusion is too much for us to carry on our own. We may imagine that the past was easier or the future will be better, but where we stand now it just doesn't seem possible to live how we know we need to live. When most of us think of our days, we want to feel present, excited, and the feeling of living our most fulfilling and happy life. While no one can promise these things for certain, what I can offer is an introduction to a process. A process where in working together we can explore and practice, be challenged and supported, express authentically and learn from our fears, desires and actuality.
I come from a Gestalt therapy approach which incorporates and eclectically uses meditation, existentialism and body based work to bring about: responsibility for ourselves and others, honesty of expression, and the present therapeutic relationship to challenge and inspire authenticity. Every interaction is different between client and therapist, even quite likely from session to session. We will always attempt to begin where there is support and willingness to work, so that we can honor each person's individual pace, and encourage with persistence, creative growth.
If this sounds interesting to you, please send me an email and we can discuss further to see whether this therapy will be the best fit for you. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation. My office is located in Mississauga near Matheson and Hurontario.
