Gloria Liederman comes to the Chrysalis Centre with over 20 years of clinical experience, serving residents of York Region, since 1992. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology from McGill University, and her M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Concordia University. She is registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario and currently offers services to adults and couples. Gloria received training in assessment, psychodynamic, and couples therapy at the Montreal General Hospital. In her 13-year position as staff therapist at Family Services York Region (previously Markham-Stouffville Family Life Centre), she assisted people with a wide range of mental health concerns including depression, post-partum depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, life transitions, self- esteem, assertiveness, stress management, historical childhood issues, and relationship difficulties. As part of the York Region Abuse Program (YRAP), Gloria co-facilitated treatment groups, for a number of years, for women survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Gloria’s therapeutic approach can best be described as “integrative” in nature. Although her main orientation is Client-Centered, she draws on Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) Emotionally-Focused (EFT) and Systems-based therapies to tailor therapy to the needs of her clients. Her relaxed, straight-forward and supportive manner puts clients at ease.
