Owner & Clinical Director

I’m Elana Sures,

A recovering self critic turned self actualization expert.

Most people are experts when it comes to identifying the external problems that are making them miserable: the disengaged partner, the narcissistic boss, the defiant kid, and the corrupt government. It’s easy for all of us to externalize the source of our grief or pain.

But no therapist can change the problematic people in your life (that’s between them and their therapist!). However, we can help you identify how you feel, and what you want or need, and start exploring what meaningful action you can take to feel more in control of your life.

We can help you take the steps to build your own self-awareness, recognize the patterns and behaviours that keep you stuck and create the change you need to live the life you want.

we hold space for you.
