Lisa Schwartz

MSW, RSW

CHILD AND FAMILY THERAPIST

Lisa Schwartz is a Registered Social Worker and has been working with children, adolescents and families for nearly 10 years. She completed her Masters of Social Work from the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto in 2013. Prior to this, she studied psychology at Western University and graduated with an Honours Specialization Bachelor Degree. Lisa’s clinical training and majority of her work experience has been in family therapy and children’s mental health at SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health (previously the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre) in Toronto. In her 8 years working there, she worked with hundreds of children, adolescents, and families with diverse social, emotional and behavioural needs through individual, family, and group therapy. One of her passions was leading the anxiety group for young people aged 10-12 years, which she co-facilitated for several years, including adapting it into a virtual program during the pandemic. In addition, more recently, she saw a gap in the program and co-created and led a parallel parent group using skills from EFFT to support and empower caregivers to learn skills to best help their children with anxiety. She also helped to launch and facilitate the EFFT Caregiver workshop and bring the EFFT model to SickKids CCMH with the guidance of Dr. Mirisse.

Lisa works with children, adolescents, families, parents and young adults at FPC. She uses an integrated approach and draws from her experience and training in various modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Brief and Narrative Therapy, Emotion-Focused Family Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. In addition to working with children and families, she works with adolescents and young adults experiencing a range of challenges including anxiety, mood disorders, school and work related stress, family conflict and relational issues, emotion regulation, life transitions, and more. She uses a caring, compassionate, and individualized approach with clients to support them in achieving their specific goals for therapy.
