Hello, I’m Pamela Gilbert and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist in midtown Toronto. I have a unique and multi-dimensional background that informs my holistic approach to therapy. My life experience, career background and therapeutic training come together in the work I do with my clients.
My clients are millennials, creatives and artists, students, professionals, and individuals exploring therapy for personal growth. My practice is diverse in age, gender expression, race, and cultural background.
10 years ago, my teenage son took his first steps to recover from a mental health and addiction crisis. To find support for him, I consulted with doctors, therapists, addiction counsellors and treatment centers. With my family, I embraced support groups, family programs, and did all I could to surround my son on his journey. It was the catalyst and inspiration to change my career. I went back to school the first time in 2014. Thankfully, my son is doing well.
