Michael Garfinkel

Michael is a psychotherapist who supports people with anxiety, OCD, and relationship challenges in finding relief. He has a Masters in Social Work from New York University, specialising in adult psychotherapy.

Growing up in Vancouver, Michael struggled with anxiety and depression in his early twenties. Driven to seek solutions, he spent years studying plant medicine and meditation abroad. Through those experiences, he learned that there is not one miracle cure, but rather an array of skills and practices we can harness to cultivate our wellbeing.

In his clinical work, he draws from a range of modalities, integrating CBT with mindfulness. He has specialized training in EMDR for trauma and ERP for OCD. His approach is warm, relational, and relaxed. He’ll support you in growing beyond your old limiting patterns into a more fulfilling experience of life.

Eric Morrissette

As a non-directive practitioner, I honour your autonomy and deep inner resources for healing. I see my role as travel companion, following you into unchartered territories. I’m here to help you find your path and bring into awareness unnoticed elements in the landscape of your journey. My goal is to support you reconnecting to your own wisdom and resilience.

My specialization in psychoanalytical therapy means that I believe the Unconscious is very important and that transformation comes through awareness of how past experiences have shaped us and dictate our trajectories. For me, healing comes from striving towards wholeness, bringing into light and connecting to parts of ourselves that have been left in shadow. I am here to support you in rewriting your story from a place of deeper insight, acceptance and compassion.

I believe psychedelics have the capacity to manifest deeper layers of the Unconscious that are otherwise not readily accessible. As medicine guiding us back to our own wisdom, they can connect us to our authentic self and to the greater whole. Experiences of altered states of consciousness can be magnificent but also challenging. Whatever comes up, my calm and grounding presence will help you in your quest for healing, meaning, and creativity.

I am a registered psychologist with the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec since 2010. Specializing in the psychoanalytical/psychodynamic approach, I have 15 years of experience working in a psychiatric setting, offering individual and art mediated group psychotherapy.

En tant que praticien non directif, j'honore votre autonomie et vos ressources intérieures pour la guérison. Je vois mon rôle comme celui d'un compagnon de voyage, qui vous suit dans des territoires inexplorés. Je suis là pour vous aider à trouver votre propre chemin et à prendre conscience d'éléments inaperçus dans le paysage de votre parcours. Mon but est de vous aider à vous reconnecter à votre propre sagesse et à votre résilience.

Ma spécialisation en thérapie psychanalytique signifie que je crois que l'inconscient est très important et que la transformation passe par la prise de conscience de la façon dont nos expériences passées nous ont façonnés et dictent nos trajectoires. Pour moi, la guérison passe par la recherche de la complétude, la mise en lumière et la connexion avec des parties de nous-mêmes qui ont été laissées dans l'ombre. Je suis là pour vous aider à réécrire votre histoire dans la lucidité, l'acceptation et la compassion.

Je crois que les psychédéliques ont la capacité de révéler des couches plus profondes de l'inconscient qui ne sont pas facilement accessibles autrement. En tant que médecine nous guidant vers notre propre sagesse, ils peuvent nous mettre en contact avec notre soi authentique et avec le plus grand tout. Les expériences d'états altérés de conscience peuvent être magnifiques mais aussi éprouvantes. Peu importe ce qui émerge, ma présence calme et ancrée saura vous aider dans votre quête de guérison, de sens et de créativité.

Je suis psychologue inscrit à l'Ordre des Psychologues du Québec depuis 2010. Spécialisé dans l'approche psychanalytique/psychodynamique, j'ai 15 ans d'expérience en milieu psychiatrique, où j'offre des psychothérapies individuelles et de groupe à médiation artistique.
