Ron Lorenzo, M.A., M.S.W., R.S.W. (He/Him)

Originally from a business management background, I later found my calling in mental health, leading me to obtain masters degrees in both Counselling Psychology (Ateneo de Manila University) and Social Work (University of Toronto). Since 2006, I have provided counselling, psychotherapy, and group facilitation both in private practice and as part of various community mental health agencies.  I am currently a part of the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) and a registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).

MY APPROACH

In doing my work, I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities that I am trained in: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems-Informed EMDR, Ego States Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, Attachment-Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy, Mindfulness, Meditation, and Reiki. 

 

I acknowledge that many people consider their spiritual life as crucial to their mental, emotional, and physical health. If this is the case for you, I will create opportunities for you to reflect on your spiritual life and identify protective factors within it to help support your general well-being.

 

We will come up with a general plan for your treatment, however, we will also adapt the plan to what is needed in the moment. We will do the work together and we will frequently fine tune how we conduct our therapy.
