Welcome! Thanks for visiting my profile. Due to lived experience of mental health concerns and oppression of various levels, I am passionate about helping people grow in many aspect of their lives. I am a passionate Registered Social Worker who cares deeply about social issues and the impact they have on vulnerable populations, such as children, immigrants/refugees, women, BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, those in poverty, and those incarcerated. I especially enjoy working with Black Indigenous Persons of Colour (BIPOC), on the topic of mental health/illness and its intersectionality with gender, race, sexuality, age, disability, immigration/socio-economic status, and oppression. My approach is trauma-informed, non-judgmental, and empathetic. Thank you.

Establishing an environment where clients feel safe to share their story is of paramount importance. My approach to therapy is from a trauma-informed lens, a person-centred approach, and by utilizing evidence based modalities. I have experience journeying with clients from diverse backgrounds and with those who have experienced trauma, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, and with patients and their families in an in-patient setting. I am an integrationist, because I believe that therapy is not a one size fits all approach. I have a certificate in trauma-informed CBT, Levels 1 & 2 in EMDR, EFT Externship, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP II), Prepare-Enrich, and have utilized other modalities such as Bowenian Family Systems Therapy, Existential Therapy, and DBT in an integrative way. I have also worked with survivors of sex trafficking for over a decade. Your story is unique. I would be honoured to gently hold your story and journey alongside you, as you navigate through your life’s challenges. Be prepared to be gently challenged, and work on moving you closer to your therapeutic goals through talk therapy and/or experientially through EMDR.

NOTE: Not currently accepting new clients. I work with Black and racialized clients who are discontent, distressed, or stuck as a result of molding themselves to fit expectations others have of them and struggle with being themselves in their relationships and other contexts they are a part of. I help you become more secure in who you are: your authentic selves and self-expression so that you can cultivate relationships with yourself and others that honour these things. As a Black woman and trained Couple and Family Therapist, I approach therapy relationally and systemically. This means that I pay attention to how your contexts (e.g. society, culture, relationships, etc.)-past and present- influence your experience in various aspects of your life, including your mental wellbeing and relationships. I work with you to support you in moving from where you are now to where you want be; we examine what might be getting in the way of you reaching that place and how you can navigate these challenges in ways that honour your intersecting identities and values. My approach is grounded in the values I hold around intersectionality and social justice, anti-oppressive and trauma informed practice, humour, and the therapeutic relationship. I invite you to schedule a free 15 minute consultation call to see if we would be a good fit.

Hello, my name is Simone Donaldson and I believe that we often forget that we already possess the answers , strengths, and capability to navigate difficult times, and my hope is to guide people to and through these answers. I also believe if we reminded ourselves that we are inherently valuable and created for a purpose, we would tap into our most healed selves, allowing us to thrive. Psychotherapy is transformational work for the mind, body and soul. I have seen personally and professionally where mental health support can truly change whole lives, and when neglected, completely deteriorate lives. I entered this work, because even at a young age, I was always drawn to ensuring others felt seen, heard, valued and well. I am both an advocate and nurturer at heart. I have my Bachelor’s Degree from Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) and Master’s from Dalhousie University, which has significantly helped shape my practice, along with lived experiences. I address a variety of concerns including anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship conflict, grief, racial trauma, and domestic violence to name a few. I am an eclectic worker and use a variety of modalities which include Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) & Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). I am truly excited to support you on your healing journey.
