Summer Thorp, MSW RSW:
Stories have always intrigued me because they helped me to understand how other people think and see the world. My interest in stories led me to social work and therapy because I saw the power of personal narratives to limit or expand what my clients thought possible.
I am also a natural systems thinker, and I am always seeking out opportunities to learn more about how people organize their internal and external lives. My interest in systems led me to train as an IFS Therapist.
The focus of my practice is periods of transition. Transitions occur at all stages of life. They can include a new diagnosis, the loss of employment, the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a new sexual or gender identity, recovery after illness, or a faith crisis. Periods of transition can be intimidating and challenging, and I am here to support you as you write new stories to reframe your life.
My work with clients is a mix of narrative, somatic and IFS. I completed my IFS Level 1 training, and I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.
I am interested in exploring with you how your past and current experiences impact you mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and how I can support your healing journey. If you’re wondering if I can help you, please contact me and we can determine together if I am the right fit for you.
Michelle Gibson, MSW RSW:
As a practicing Psychotherapist and Registered Social Worker (OCSWSSW) my goal is to create a space from which you feel safe to explore what is holding your back from the life you would like to be living. My practice is guided by the hope of offering you a space for healing in a judgement-free and open setting. When we are offered the space for connection, our system can open up to explore parts of ourselves that are otherwise blocked by defences, pleasing and performance. I would be honoured to hold this space with you.
I work with most concerns that bring someone to counselling including stress, trauma, sex and sexuality, identity, grief and loss, anxiety and transitions along the life course. If your story includes parts that feel unfinished, burdened or stuck, than I am likely a good fit for you. I work collaboratively with my clients primarily from an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy model (Level 3 and advanced trainings). This means that therapy most often involves working to explore what is happening inside rather than focusing on what is happening around you in your life. Sometimes I pull in knowledge from other therapy types including EMDR (Levels I, II, and advanced trainings), somatic therapy, and emotion focused therapy, to assist my clients in exploring their concerns. While IFS is my main model of use, I am privileged to have knowledge of and experience in many other models that can be used to assist us in the therapeutic process.
