I am Deborah (Debbi) Callander, your Psychotherapist, registered with the College of Registered Therapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have a Baccalaureate degree in Psychology and Political Science from Carleton and York Universities.
Over the years I have undertaken a great deal of continuing education and recently I have grauated as an Internal Family Systems Level 1 therapist. My real training has come from my clients in almost thirty years of practice.
Throughout that time my practice has been focused on complex trauma (CPTSD) and all the corollary problems people face trying to cope, for instance substance and behaviour addictions, intimate partner violence, depression, anxiety, trouble with the justice systems and more. These ways of trying to cope have consequences in terms of losses and pain.
I use many modalities of Psychotherapy in addition to IFS as an integrated therapist.
My work is led by you my client, based on your goals, and seeks to enhance your capacity for living your best life.
I am also trained as an Interventionist to help families with a loved one in trouble and I do this with my other practice and partners in Circle of Care Recovery.
I am networked with many of the services and systems you may need in your recovery
