MSW, RSW, Registered Social Worker
Lori Epstein Offers Counselling / Psychotherapy Services
I am a Registered Clinical Social Worker with over 22 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I provide counselling and psychotherapy making use of evidence-based therapies. My approach is warm, non-judgmental, empathetic and supportive. I work from a collaborative and strength-based perspective and help clients attain optimal mental health by creating a safe space in which they feel validated. I treat clients with various issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief and loss, separation and divorce, illness and personal injury.
I completed my Bachelor of Social Work at McGill University and was awarded my Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto. I am trained in EMDR, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. Additionally, I consider myself an Informed Internal Family Systems therapist.
I have many years of experience working as an in-patient social worker at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre as well as Lyndhurst Centre, now part of University Health Network. I worked with patients and their families around illness and injury, specifically spinal cord injury. Most recently, aside from my private practice, I have been working with a family health team providing counselling to individuals and couples with complex issues.
Within my private practice located in Newmarket, Ontario, I provide in-person counselling and virtual counselling services.
