Lisa Shouldice MA, RP, CCP, Psychotherapist

Individual, Couple & Family Counselling / Psychotherapy

Get Inspired to Change Your Life.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (CRPO) and member of the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association, located in Downtown Toronto.   I have 14 years of experience with diverse populations and issues.  People choose to work with me because I am a loving, caring and honest person that loves my job, and feel honoured to hold and create space for you.  I work with people who have experienced trauma and mental health concerns in their lives, who may have been diagnosed with a Personality Disorder.  I am a spiritual person and have always enjoyed working with different cultures.  I have facilitated healing and counselling for many gay, lesbian, transgender and two-spirit people throughout my career.  I am married to an amazing woman as well.  Sometimes it is important to have a psychotherapist that is not only open-minded and non-judgmental, but also knows the dynamics and possible daily struggles of being LGBTTIQ.  I feel confident this is an area I can be a strong support for you.  Everyone has a story and I would love to hear yours.  I have a passion for personal relationships and I will be there every step of the way.         

Therapy can be either short-term solution-focused or longer-term emotion-focused, depending on personal need/preference &/or insurance coverage.  I am comfortable with both approaches.


  • Trauma Therapy and related concerns from a past history of sexual, physical and emotional/psychological abuse

  • Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Two-Spirit LGBTQ Therapy

  • Multi-cultural Therapy, specifically Aboriginal and Middle Eastern cultures

Therapeutic Services I also offer:

  • Lesbian Gay LGBTQ Sexual Identity, Orientation & Gender Identity Challenges

Rates: I offer an initial 30-40 minute consultation session that is free.  An hour of psychotherapy is $140. Please contact me with further inquiries.  There is some sliding fee scale available.  The psychological services I offer are supervised by a Registered Psychologist and are covered by most insurance plans.  I am an NIHB/FNIHB-approved Psychotherapist, so if you are Aboriginal you may be eligible for this funding.
