Annette Poizner, MSW, Ed.D., Registered Social Work
Is there an infrastructure of self that each person can tweak to enhance function and mental wellness?
I'm a social worker with a Doctorate in Education completed at the University of Toronto, specializing in Counselling Psychology. I'm a Registered Social Worker in the province of Ontario, and within that license, practice psychotherapy.
I've been in private practice for 20+ years, working with OCD, and difficult to treat conditions. I have had success with some difficult-to-treat conditions.
I co-founded the Milton H. Erickson Institute of Toronto with two colleagues. I have advanced training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Processing), Ericksonian therapy and hypnosis.
My work has been featured in dailies and trade magazines across North America. I have presented widely in academic and clinical circles. I'm a published author.
I'm a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals and the Canadian Association of Spiritual Care.
