Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issue, addiction, trauma or a spiritual concern, Misha will not only help you better understand and heal your unique problem, he will help you recognize and develop inner strength you already have.
In his private practice in Victoria, Misha integrates a variety of therapeutic approaches and is able to offer one that may best suite your needs.
For example, he may invite you to become mindful of your thoughts, feelings or body sensations in the moment, explore your past and present relationships, use educational approach and share his own experience with you when appropriate. Misha also employs ceremonial ways of expanding consciousness for deeper healing and spiritual exploration. Whatever the approach, Misha strives to not be overly reliant on techniques, but rather on his ability to be genuinely and creatively present moment by moment.
