Hi I’m Anton, I use the pronouns he and they. I am a gay transgender therapist with a passion in supporting folks who can’t say no, need to keep busy, have intimacy problems, depression, or have experienced childhood sexual abuse. I started my own healing journey with therapy at 16 to help me with my abusive childhood.
I was that kid at school that other kids would come to with their secrets. I have been told that my character ‘texture’ is that of a woodland faerie, and that my gift is that of ‘beginners mind’, Jack Kornfield wrote “Through beginner’s mind we learn to see one another mindfully, free from views. Without views, we listen more deeply and see more clearly.” I am able to see, hear and feel you without judgement.
I believe each of us can follow their true path to happiness; in 2015 I transitioned from female to male; I relocated to Toronto to live my dream life of living as a gay man, and I am happily immersed in the queer community, which includes singing in a LGBTQ community choir and doing volunteer work.
I operate from a holistic & spiritual perspective, preferring to work with you as a timeless spiritual being on a sacred journey of personal exploration, rather than the old-fashioned belief that you are ‘broken’ and need fixing.
I am a spiritually focused person, closely connected to nature. Both highly intuitive and empathetic, I believe there are no coincidences, only synchronicities. – meaning there is a hidden deeper meaning to those moments.
I have “dipped my toe” into the religions/philosophies of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Paganism, Spiritualism, and Métis spiritual traditions. I have read three Bibles – Gideon’s and both the Old and New Testaments. I have developed my own perspective on religion, what the Divine really is, and how we can become “enlightened.” That being said, I don’t feel the need to impose my beliefs on anyone else.
