Chris Pankewich RP | Registered Psychotherapist | Men Therapy Toronto

Chris Pankewich MACP, RP (Qualifying)
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

FEE$140 per 55 Minutes
NEW CLIENTS:  YES. Accepting New Clients
LOCATION:   Virtual Only (Online Video Sessions)

At the core of my work with clients, we seek to explore our unique responses to three fundamental questions: What changes do I want or need to make in my life? What actions can I start taking to make this a reality? What is getting in the way of achieving this? These three questions connect directly with the most important areas of life, from the relationship we have with ourselves / others to career success and desired lifestyle changes. The process of understanding both the internal and external factors that relate to answering these questions involves uncovering the hidden barriers that hold us back.

I find it very effective to explore how the stories we tell ourselves about our lives may be affecting our capacity for change. This involves connecting with the emotional and energetic blockages to change. Deep down, we all know what is truly best for ourselves but our daily environment can make it easy for us to slip into distraction and disconnection.

My role is to help support your therapeutic exploration rather than lead it. By incorporating elements of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Techniques, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and a healthy dose of humour, I seek to match your unique needs with a custom blend of tools & techniques to carry forward.

I have also personally gained a great deal from being a client of skilled psychotherapists. It has been a central component to my own mental health journey which continues to unfold and transform each day. For years I struggled with feeling anxious about the future, regretful of the past and powerless to take control of my own path. I have learned that I also benefit greatly from an active lifestyle that includes a dedicated yoga practice, recreational sports with friends, and spending as much time as possible outdoors.

Brian Moskowitz Therapist at Men Therapy Toronto

Brian Moskowitz RP (Qualifying)
Master’s (Candidate) Practicum Therapist

FEE$80 per 55 Minutes
NEW CLIENTS:  YES. Accepting New Clients
LOCATION:   Virtual Only (Online Video Sessions)

Brian Moskowitz is a practicum student, on track to complete 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.
