My name is Michael Sa’d M.S.W., R.S.W. and I am an experienced Registered Social Worker, specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I am committed to providing compassion, understanding, and support to help you through difficult life transitions.

I have a Masters of Social Work (M.S.W.) from the University of Toronto, and I specialize in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and certified as a Solution-Focused Therapist (CSFT). I use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) when working with trauma.

I work with individuals from various backgrounds, across different life cycles, and transitions. I have worked in multiple professional settings such as York University, the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH), and private mental health settings.

In my therapy practice, I use an integrative approach that is trauma-informed and combines eclectic counselling and psychotherapy strategies to help you reach your personal goals. I can help you utilize your strengths and experiences while at the same time, provide support and practical feedback to help you effectively address personal life challenges and long-standing unhealthy patterns.  My therapy style is highly tailored and personalized to each client.

I specialize in working with;
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-esteem
  • motivation
  • perfectionism
  • identity issues
  • life transitions 
  • marital and relationship issues
  • trauma
  • anger management 
  • grief and loss
  • body image and disordered eating
  • substance use and misuse 
  • academic concerns
  • career and work-related issues

In addition to working with individuals, I specialize in working with couples and families in helping them improve their communication and develop an understanding of the patterns that reinforce reoccurring issues.  

The benefits of working together can allow you to overcome your unique challenges and help you improve your self-confidence and develop lasting relationships.

With compassion and understanding, I look forward to joining you in helping you build on your strengths and improve your quality of life.
