My name is Nancy Lipson. I am a social worker and therapist that specializes in eating disorders, body image issues and self-esteem issues.
My practice is conveniently located at the Mount Pleasant Therapy Centre in Toronto's midtown. I welcome referrals from a variety of health practitioners and can assure you that they will be treated with the highest degree of care. I pride myself on supporting those coping with eating disorders, body image issues and self-esteem issues and look forward to working with your clients.
To better health,
MY STORY & CREDENTIALS
I understand the importance of being listened to, truly listened to. I believe feeling a connection with another person has the power to help us understand ourselves better and helps us grow.
My skills in connecting with people led me to return to school to complete a Master’s in Social Work, with the goal of becoming a therapist. In addition to my 7 years working as a research coordinator, once completing my Master’s I worked at Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and North York General Hospital in eating disorders for 8 years.
I also work at Markham Family Health Team. I have training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I continuously attend professional development opportunities to keep up my knowledge and skills.
MY PRIMARY FOCUS
Expert therapy for eating disorders, body image issues and self-esteem issues, drawing on techniques I have learned from my training in Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness.
MY SECONDARY FOCUSES
Therapy for the areas associated with eating disorders, body image issues and self-esteem issues including perfectionism, depression, anxiety and grief.
