Andrea Krygier
Clinical Psychologist

Hi, I’m Andrea Krygier and thanks for joining me! With nearly three decades of dedicated practice in Psychoanalysis, I bring forth a wealth of experience rooted in compassion, respect, and expertise. My journey in this field has been a profound exploration of the human psyche, driven by a deep-seated desire to alleviate suffering and foster profound healing.

Specializing in a diverse array of mental health concerns, I have cultivated a therapeutic approach that transcends mere treatment; it’s a holistic journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Each session is a sacred space where clients are invited to explore the depths of their emotions, fears, and aspirations, guided by my unwavering support and expertise.

At the core of my practice lies a profound commitment to helping individuals navigate the complexities of existence. From depression and anxiety to PTSD and chronic illness, I specialize in empowering clients to embrace life’s inevitable pains while liberating themselves from unnecessary suffering caused by distorted perceptions and interpretations.

The following graphic borrowed from the principles of Stoicism illustrates the difference between pain versus suffering that characterizes the psychoanalytical work I do with my clients.

Imagine facing the loss of a job – a daunting prospect fraught with uncertainty and anxiety. In such moments, it’s crucial to discern between the inherent pain of the situation and the additional layers of suffering stemming from self-doubt, fear of inadequacy, or unhealthy coping mechanisms. Through the transformative power of psychoanalysis, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, unraveling the intricacies of the human mind and paving the way for profound growth and resilience.

Drawing from a rich tapestry of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive-behavioral, narrative, and culturally sensitive perspectives, I tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each client. Whether grappling with marital separation, navigating fertility issues, or confronting existential crises, I provide a safe and nurturing environment for individuals, couples, and families to explore, heal, and grow.

My methodology is not one-size-fits-all; it’s a collaborative process informed by empathy, understanding, and clinical expertise. Together, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, illuminating the path towards a brighter, more enriched quality of life.

Fluent in both English and Spanish, I offer virtual therapy sessions to accommodate diverse backgrounds and lifestyles. Whether you’re seeking relief from chronic fatigue and pain or navigating the complexities of LGBTQIA struggles, I am here to guide you with compassion, wisdom, and unwavering support.

I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to embark on this transformative journey with you, fostering a therapeutic alliance grounded in empathy, understanding, and profound insight. Together, let’s navigate the depths of the human experience and emerge stronger, wiser, and more resilient than ever before.

Kari Adams
Clinical Psychologist

Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! I am a Registered Psychologist and I work with individuals and families to help you heal from past traumas, improve relationships, manage stress, and enhance overall well-being.

I’ve been working in the helping field for the past 15 years, and have supported people with a variety of concerns including: trauma; anxiety; depression;  family challenges;  burnout; stress;  emotional regulation; self-esteem; and life changes. My approach to therapy is person-centred, trauma-informed and compassionate. I believe it is important to get to know someone as a whole person:  who you are outside of your struggles, and what identities you hold in your relationships and interactions with the world.  In our work together, we will explore what got you where you are today, while drawing on your unique strengths and resources in working towards the future you want.

I am trained in a type of trauma therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) that can be used to address trauma-related conditions like PTSD, as well as a variety of other concerns, including depression and anxiety. I also have training and experience in Family Therapy, which allows me to work both with individuals who are seeking more insight into the family patterns that influenced their lives, as well with families who may be looking for new ways to solve problems, resolve conflicts, and create more adaptive patterns in their relationships with each other.

Murray Molohon
Clinical Psychologist

Hey there, I’m Murray Molohon. For more than three decades, I’ve had the privilege of helping individuals and couples navigate life’s challenges with compassion and understanding. My journey as a therapist has been one of growth, learning, and above all, a deep commitment to supporting others on their path to healing.

What sets me apart as a therapist is my unwavering belief in the power of connection and empathy. I approach every client with an open heart and a listening ear, creating a safe space where they can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences without judgment.

Throughout my career, I’ve honed my skills in a variety of therapeutic approaches, from cognitive-behavioral techniques to mindfulness-based interventions. But perhaps what I’m most known for is my ability to tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each individual or couple I work with.

Whether it’s helping couples rebuild trust and intimacy, guiding individuals through periods of anxiety or depression, or supporting families in crisis, I’m deeply committed to helping my clients find strength, resilience, and hope.

One of the things I’m most passionate about is working with couples to enhance their relationships. I believe that healthy communication and emotional connection are the foundation of a strong partnership, and I’m dedicated to helping couples cultivate these skills in their own lives.

But my work isn’t just about addressing problems; it’s also about helping my clients discover their own inner resources and strengths. I see therapy as a collaborative journey, and I’m here to walk alongside my clients every step of the way, offering guidance, support, and encouragement as they work towards their goals.

In essence, my goal as a therapist is simple: to create a space where my clients feel seen, heard, and valued, and to support them in discovering the strength and resilience they already possess. If you’re ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, I’m here to help you take that first step.
