Hi, I’m Karen Goslin

I am a Clinical Social Worker providing psychotherapy in a private practice in Toronto, Canada. I have over 30+ years of experience working with Individuals, Couples, Families, Children, and Teenagers who are dealing with a range of issues. I provide comprehensive assessments and customized programs to ensure the clients I work with have clear strategies to create the important changes they are looking for and needing. I rely on the approaches below to achieve results.

Clients tell me what sets me apart is that when their therapy is complete, they have SPECIFIC strategies that they use to make the changes in their life that make a REAL difference to them!
