Caitlin Black, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) (she/her)
Processing emotions and navigating through adversity can be very challenging and overwhelming. My purpose is to provide a supportive and compassionate space where it feels possible to approach these emotions while developing the motivation and belief in your ability to enact powerful positive change in your life.
I have helped clients explore tools and strategies that have improved their self-esteem, sense of self, and healthy communication and boundaries that support their relationships. I have also supported clients in finding new meaning as they recover from trauma, deal with loss, or experience breakups or divorce. I additionally support clients’ abilities to manage other external stressors such as family, work, health, and cultural systemic barriers.
My approach is foundationally grounded in psychoanalytic psychology, but is also informed by trauma-focused modalities, anti-oppressive approaches, cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, sensorimotor approaches, and mindfulness-based practices.
I am designated as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in good standing with The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have a BA in psychology from UBC, a BA in fine arts from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and I have completed graduate studies at Toronto Art Therapy Institute where I studied art therapy and psychotherapy. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, ADHD, eating disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, divorce, trauma, life transitions, postpartum depression or anxiety, Indigenous adults, and LGBTQ+ related concerns. I work with children, adolescents, adults, parents, and families.
I am invested in listening to your story with an open mind, compassion, and non-judgment. I look forward to meeting you and making steps towards your goals and hopes for the future.
