SHEILA GILL, RP, MA
My name is Sheila Gill (she/her), and I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am an active member of the International Association for Psychoanalytic Self Psychology and the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists. Born and raised in the prairies, I moved to Toronto in 1997 to attend the University of Toronto. Here my life partner and I have raised two sons, now young adults. Our multi-generational household includes a cheerful nonagenarian, and two dogs who love long walks in all types of weather.
I bring to psychotherapy a love of people and a deep care for their wellness. My earlier academic work in equity and postcolonial studies (OISE/UT) challenged race-based oppression in Canadian society. My personal and professional search for creative, healing responses to the complex struggles we face ultimately has drawn me into the mental health field.
I am here to provide nonjudgmental support to individuals and couples yearning to grow, heal, and transform. I am particularly committed to working effectively with neurodivergent youth and adults, as well as individuals impacted by adoption. Approved as a service provider by Rainbow Health Ontario, I warmly welcome to my practice members of the LGBTQ2S+ communities.
In my experience, an empathic therapeutic relationship encourages old patterns to emerge as fuel for new, life-affirming ways of being, with yourself, and with others.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about how we can work together.
