I’m Mitchell Smolkin – a psychotherapist, author and speaker who promotes the idea of finding dignity in your suffering in order to become closer to others and yourself.
I have worked internationally with thousands of individuals, couples and families as well as organizations and businesses, bringing together the latest and most inspiring thinking from neuroscience and the philosophy of psychology in order to better understand how to work through blocks to embodied connection.
Prior to turning my attention to writing, public speaking and consultation, I built a successful international psychotherapy practice on two continents and was the managing director for a foundation as well as a senior producer at Canada’s largest performing arts centre in the heart of Toronto.
Presently, you’ll find me hosting my show, The Dignity of Suffering. I also speak at conferences and to organizations when I’m not writing, running, doing yoga or discovering the next craft beer.
