Gerry Philipps-GangeRegistered Psychotherapist

I’ve been assisting individuals, couples, and families in professional role for over 20 years and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the therapeutic encounter.

I have both a B.A. and B.Sc. from the University of Toronto and completed a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Adler University – Chicago. I am a member of the North American Society for Adlerian Psychology, the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT), Canadian Association of Marriage and family therapy and The Ontario Association Of Consultants Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP). I am registered with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario.

I definitely look beyond the medical model of psychology and work with a non-pathologizing view of the person. My approach to Psychotherapy is integrative as I draw on a number of psychological traditions as determined by the needs of my client. I also incorporate mindfulness based techniques, progressive relaxation exercises, narrative therapy interventions, two-chair techniques,role play, guided/self-guided visualizations, C-B-T, systematic desensitization and graduated exposure exercises.

In addition to individual Psychotherapy I provide counselling to families and couples using a systematic approach. (Gottman, Adler) For over 15 years I’ve been providing weekly anger management sessions in Scarborough and East York. In my practice I work with a Clinical Psychologist and a number of Psychotherapy trainees.
