Welcome, I am a clinical and counselling psychologist who values working collaboratively with clients towards their goals. I welcome the opportunity to connect, meet, and discuss whether our LGBTQ+-positive service is a good fit for your needs.
Taking a holistic approach to mental health and life development needs, I work with families, children, adolescents, and adults towards addressing their functioning, relationships, mental health, identity, addictions, education, and career development needs. With competencies in both clinical and counselling psychology, I can assist individuals across a wide range of areas, including mood and anxiety issues, trauma/abuse, addictions, family, parenting/Co-parenting, and relational difficulties, gender dysphoria, gender and non-binary identity concerns, gender transition, sexual identity/coming out, as well as educational challenges and general life transitions like bereavement, career change, job loss, etc.
I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario with over 14 years of experience conducting research, providing psychological assessment, treatment, and counselling services to children, adolescents, adults, and families. I also focus on working with parents using an attachment-focused approach and am a certified Circle of Security Parenting facilitator. I earned Ph.D. and Master’s degrees at the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and have worked in both private practice, community counselling, mental health and addiction treatment hospital settings. I am an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto and support students in their graduate studies research, as well as to pursue research opportunities as part of their work and training at Step Stone Psychology.
I feel fortunate to have a team of conscientious, dedicated, and talented clinicians working in our unique practice together. We are committed to providing professional, sensitive, and evidence-based services to you and your family, as well as specialized training to students and registration candidates. I look forward to meeting you.
All the very best,
Dr. Barbara Mancini, Ph.D., C.Psych
