 As a practicing Psychotherapist and Registered Social Worker (OCSWSSW) my goal is to create a space from which you feel safe to explore what is holding your back from the life you would like to be living.  I work primarily with the impacts of occupational stress, relational and childhood trauma, perinatal, postpartum and infant loss experiences, and working with other helping professionals. However, all parts and experiences are welcome! If your story includes parts that feel unfinished, burdened or stuck, than I am likely a good fit for you.

I work collaboratively with my clients primarily from an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy model. I am also trained in and use EMDR, somatic therapy, ego state therapy, attachment therapy, hypnotherapy, and mindfulness. Each of these approaches has their time and place in therapy and we work with your needs and preferences to determine best fit.

In addition to psychotherapy, I am an adjunct professor and I regularly facilitate workshops throughout Canada.

In my spare time, you can find me travelling, enjoying the outdoors, reading, and spending time with my partner, daughter and dog Otis.

If you’re wondering if I can help you, please contact me and we can determine together if I am the right fit for you. You can reach me at [email protected].

Summer Thorp London Therapist

Summer Thorp, MSW, RSW

Stories have always intrigued me because they helped me to understand how other people think and see the world. My interest in stories led me to social work: as I worked in the community, in the non-profit sector, I learned the power of personal narratives to limit or expand the opportunities that my clients chose to pursue.

Stories have always intrigued me because they helped me to understand how other people think and see the world. My interest in stories led me to social work: as I worked in the community, in the non-profit sector, I learned the power of personal narratives to limit or expand the opportunities that my clients chose to pursue.

I began my education with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Justice and Peace Studies. Next, I earned a Master of Education, with a focus on Indigenous post-secondary education policy, and a Master of Social Work, with a focus on direct practice. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

My work with clients is a mix of narrative, strengths-based, compassion-focused, IFS, solution-focused, and somatic therapy. I am also a certified online therapist. I am interested in exploring with you how your past and current experiences impact you mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and how I can support your healing journey.

The focus of my practice is periods of transition. Transitions occur at all stages of life. They can include a new diagnosis, the loss of employment, the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, the start of a new career, recovery after illness, or a faith crisis. Periods of transition can be intimidating and challenging, and I am here to support you as you write new stories to reframe your life. If you’re wondering if I can help you, please contact me and we can determine together if I am the right fit for you.

Outside of work you can find me browsing farmers’ markets near and far for new taste adventures, handwriting letters to family and friends, and dancing like nobody’s watching.

Trehani Fonseka London counsellor

Trehani Fonseka (Inactive/On Leave)

I am a Registered Social Worker (OCSWSSW) and therapist (inactive/on-leave). I began my career in research after obtaining an Honours Bachelor in Health Sciences from McMaster University, and a Master of Science with an adjunct neuroscience specialization from the University of Toronto. I have 12+ years of experience studying biopsychosocial markers of mental illness and treatment response, in addition to engaging in outreach/knowledge translation projects to improve the accessibility of mental health services and information for clients and families. However, this purely academic lens made me feel as though something was missing from my work, so I obtained a Master of Social Work from King’s University College at Western University where I received clinical training in mental healthcare for young children, youth, and adults.

READ MORE

As a therapist (‘inactive/on-leave’), I offer counselling to youth (ages 12-30) who present with a variety of concerns, such as those pertaining to anxiety, depression, emotion regulation, relationships, and school/work. I work with clients to co-create a therapeutic plan by exploring factors that may contribute to the issue(s) at hand but also personal strengths and coping strategies that can be leveraged within recovery. 

My therapeutic approach is highly relational, as I believe that connection is integral for healing. Yet, I also draw on CBT, DBT, solutions-focused, and internal family systems therapies, among others. Due to my interdisciplinary nature, I further integrate medical science by offering psychoeducation on the role of the brain in symptom onset and treatment.

Taking steps toward healing can be an intimidating process but you do not need to do it alone. If you’re wondering if I can help you, please contact me for a free 15-minute phone consultation and we can determine together if I am the right fit for you.

Fun fact: When I am not working, you can find me tackling a home décor or photography project, lounging with my pups, or watching movies with my family.

Leanne Eby MSW, RSW

Taking the leap to start therapy for you or your child can feel overwhelming and scary, I totally get it!  I am really proud of you for making this first step as it takes tremendous strength, bravery, and courage. It seems like we’re all struggling to rebuild particularly after the unkindness of the last few years.  As such, my therapy practice offers individuals, across the lifespan, a safe, respectful, non-judgmental, comprehensive, and highly individualized approach to therapy.  I approach working with both children and adults from a place of creativity, kindness, play and connection.  Mindfulness and cognitive behavior therapy are my modalities of choice, however, I am willing and able to explore whatever method you find most helpful.

CHILD-CENTRED THERAPY

Being a kid can be so hard, especially with all the new challenges they have recently faced.  Research has consistently shown that a child’s mental health has a strong impact on how a child thinks and feels about themselves and their outside world, creating the very building blocks for adult functioning and well-being.  Whether your child has suffered trauma, is struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, conduct disorder, Autism Spectrum, or any other concerns that are impacting his/her/their development, I’d be happy to assist in their journey to wellness using my nearly 20 years of direct frontline experience (both professional and personal) working with children of all ages.  While “traditional” therapy relies heavily on language skills, my comprehensive, kid-centred, creative, and highly personalized approach allows your child to explore their interests/skills while promoting their executive functioning, developing social skills, practicing coping skills, building competencies, and prompting a holistic approach.  I am here to tailor a specific therapy program to your child’s needs rooted in warmth, compassion, and understanding.  Whether they like drawing, playing, creating, or building, let’s start their journey to mental wellness together.

ADULT THERAPY:

Our roles as adults, significant others, parents, guardians, caregivers, employees, etc never seem to end and will often take us on journeys we have never imagined.  Sometimes we are unhappy with where this journey has led and would like to make changes but just don’t know where to start.  As a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist I provide support to individuals at critical points in their lives across their lifespan.  With many years of experience in mental health, I work from a trauma-informed, client-centred practice, shifting the focus from “what is wrong with you?” to “what happened to you?”  My down-to-earth approach is rooted in kindness, compassion, and understanding with a highly individualized therapy program.  Whether you prefer a more traditional therapeutic approach or would like to try something different (e.g., doing therapy while taking a walk in nature, called a WALK ‘N TALK), I am willing and open to explore a treatment that works for you and your preferences.
