    Attia Zaidi B.A (Hons), B. Ed, MSW, RSW, RP

    I am a registered social worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and hold a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto. In addition, I have a Bachelors of Education from OISE (University of Toronto) and a B.A. Honours degree from York University.

    With over 15 years of professional experience, I have worked extensively with families, children, adolescents, and adults.

    Working as a secondary school teacher both locally and internationally, I quickly discovered I had an ability to provide compassionate support to students while offering empathetic and helpful insight. Helping counsel and provide guidance to young adults motivated me to alter my career choice from teaching to counseling and psychotherapy. I have had the privilege to help many people both individually and in their relationships.

    My work is based on individual client needs and preferences. I have expertise in various modalities and treatment areas, including:

    Trauma and Disassociation

    Attachment disruptions and repair

    Addictions

    Anxiety and stress

    Depression

    Mood disorders

    Other mental health concerns

    ADHD management

    Family therapy

    Relationships and marriage

    Conflict management

    Suicide/self harm/self destructive behaviours

    Life transitions
