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 Lead of Acorn and Anchor, I personally vet the therapists who practice here. Therapists have trained under my supervision, have experience as private practitioners, and/or agree to a personal supervision model to suit their needs, within my practice. Additionally, like me, therapists also practice using an integrative approach and other evidence-based methods. I have over 25 years of experience providing supervision to MSW/BSW Practitioners and students, and I continue to offer professional supervision and consultation to both.
We currently have 2 MSW student interns from University of Toronto, Faculty of Social Work at the Centre. Ask about 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. Some practitioners have limited availability for both online and in-person sessions.
We are located in a shared space with, and above, 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).
