My approach is a blend of creativity, presence, understanding, intuition and embodying. This kind of integrative therapy allows you to experience the healing nature of living fully in the present, and to return to your body as a source of knowledge and wisdom–for personal growth and integration.
About Danièle Massie, RP
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP), Certified Gestalt Therapist (trained at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto), as well as a Level II Emotional Freedom Techniques™ / EFT Practitioner (EFT Cert. II, AAMET). In addition to seeing adults for individual sessions, I offer workshops and group therapy to men and women who are interested in a creative, experiential and holistic approach to therapy. I specialize in trauma resilience as well as in working with clients who have a sensory processing sensitivity (HSPs), an innate trait in 20% of the population. As a Highly Sensitive Person myself, my somatic, mind/body approach, Moving To Change Psychotherapy, integrates over 30 years of growth, learning, and healing via mindfulness, contemplative movement practices (Authentic Movement and sensory awareness work), creative expression, as well as an interest in the art of everyday living and time spent in nature. I continue to be moved and inspired by the courage, creativity, resilience and tenacity of my clients as they seek more balance, meaning and authenticity in their lives. I am a clinical member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), The Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT), as well as the international Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy (AAGT). I work in both French and English and have been in private practice in downtown Toronto since 2005.
