Carey Lawford, MSW, RSW / Psychotherapist
(They/Them Pronouns)

I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with 12 experience providing assessment and psychotherapeutic services. I have a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) from the University of Manitoba and a Master of Social Work (MSW)  from the University of Toronto. In addition to my independent practice, I have a clinical role at a large mental health teaching hospital. I hold Adjunct Lecturer Status in the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto. My practice is an affirming space for diverse communities, including gender and sexually diverse clients and allies.

Treatment Approach
My approach is integrative and evidence informed, drawing primarily from a psychodynamic and relational framework. I am attentive to how your past and early life experiences, and social context, have influenced you.
