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.

We need to allow beauty, softness and gentleness to come.  
We need to celebrate this tremendous capacity for enjoyment that we have.  The body needs to be open to go from the discomforts to the longing, from the longing to the searching, and from the searching to the finding;
finding and completing.
