A word about therapy:

Michelle L. Guy, CYC, MSW, RSW

Therapy can help clients to make brain and body connections for self-regulation, understand and adapt behaviours that might impact how they feel about themselves and the world around them, and reduce danger responses in the brain (fight, flight, freeze and fawn). Therapy can lead to processing and reframing early childhood experiences in the brain, so that clients can reduce triggers of anxiety, fear and danger messages. 

As Clinical Director of Acorn and Anchor, I work alongside personally vetted therapists who have trained under my supervision as private practitioners and who also practice using an integrative approach and other evidence-based methods. 

I also provide practicum supervision to MSW students from FIFSW at University of Toronto (see our "About" section). Ask me about our reduced fees for supervised sessions with an intern. 


We've always provided both in-person and online video therapy. Online session options can be useful for busy families, those who may feel too anxious to attend at office appointments, and youth and families who do not reside in the Toronto area. 


We are located in a shared space with Stamen and Pistil Botanicals - a beautiful and relaxing space for some "nature therapy" too! - (Offices in the North side of the store, 1562 Bloor St.  West, Toronto, ON). 

Please contact us for more information about our services and therapists.
