Andrea Skitch MSW RSW
I'm a registered Social Worker who is trained in psychotherapy. I currently provide psychotherapy (a.k.a. counselling) to individuals and couples in Toronto, Canada. I use a variety of techniques, including psychodynamic, narrative, solution-focused, and emotion-focused. I am also currently coming a trained EMDR clinician and can offer the service to some individuals. EMDR is a very effective and powerful treatment for some issues. You can read more about it here. And, you can read more about me and my approach here.
Engaging in therapy will help you to uncover feelings and insights about life and the problems you’re facing, and increase awareness of your wants and needs. You will learn to trust your feelings and instincts more, find ways to operate in more genuine and authentic ways, and feel more confident in yourself both in knowing your limitations and your strengths. You will feel empowered to have the kind of relationships you want by increasing closeness and connection in your intimate relationships, and providing you with skills to comfortably assert your needs and find solutions to life’s challenges.
Why Social Work?
Workers are trained ‘helpers’. We are regulated by the OCSWSSW
and have ethical obligations to adhere to in order to protect the
wellbeing of our clients. Social Workers are trained to see individuals
and problems in a context.
The way we listen, and the questions we ask, formulate the whole
picture from which a person comes from. For example, a person’s family
structure, culture, economics, religion, history, and environment create
a story in which the person finds themselves. Often, solutions to
better living come from understanding this context, and identifying
victorious moments a person has experienced within it.
