Welcome Lisa and Suzette!

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our two latest therapists, Lisa Schwartz and Suzette McLarty

Suzette has been working in the Mental Health and Addiction sector for over 18 years. She has practiced at an acute care hospital setting where she provided psychosocial support for clients with addiction/concurrent disorders. Working from a harm reduction, trauma-informed framework, Suzette has helped individuals develop skills and access resources needed to increase their capacity to be successful in their recovery. She believes in treating the whole person and tailors treatment to meet each individual’s needs and treatment goals.

Lisa’s areas of practice include stress, anxiety, emotion regulation, parent-counselling, self-esteem and confidence, grief and bereavement and relationship and family difficulties. In her full-time position as an Individual and Family Therapist at the SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health, Lisa has experience in working with clients with diverse backgrounds and various emotional and relational difficulties. Lisa has training in different therapeutic modalities which she draws from in supporting clients. She also incorporates mindfulness and self-compassion based practices into her work with clients.

We are so excited to have these brilliant women on board and we can't wait to be a part of their journey and support them as they grow with us.
