I am a Registered Psychotherapist (CRPO) and member of the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association, located both in Downtown Toronto and with an Ontario-wide virtual clinic that offers online services. I have 20 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 LGBTQIA2S+. 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.
Lisa Shouldice MA, RP, CCP Psychotherapy began as a downtown Toronto solo private practice in 2013. The vision was a trauma specialized practice that served LGBTQIA2S+ and multi-cultural communities. This expanded into a mental health clinic in 2023 to ensure all client needs were met, with the founder choosing new team members that believed in the original vision and are experienced and specialized in these same areas. The expanded vision includes Ontario-wide online and in-person therapy in Toronto. Our clinic has associates that can work with you to help you meet your therapeutic goals. It also allows us to offer wrap-around services to better serve you.
