Brian Moskowitz is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualiyfing) having completed his master’s in counselling psychology in April 2022 (Yorkville University). Through practicing meditation over the last 15 years, while engaging in his own therapeutic journey, Brian has cultivated an appreciation for the growth and healing that can occur by building awareness and self-compassion.

His experiences with addiction and recovery have demonstrated to Brian how every person has the capacity to unburden himself and discover new enlivening aspects of his personhood, no matter his situation.

By meeting the client where he is at, Brian engenders a supportive environment, providing clients the opportunity to encounter the emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives that keep them stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour. Setting an empathic, yet structured tone to each session, Brian is able to gently guide those seeking resolution toward discovering their own solutions. Brian has found that by helping clients build a deeper awareness of their mind-body connection, they develop greater self-regulation, a healthier sense of self and more satisfying interpersonal relationships.

Brian has served in the military, comes from a journalism and corporate communications background, and is married with 4 step-children, and a cocker spaniel.
