About Bruce Dow
We all need access to the compassionate presence of another. The work we will do together will be free-from-judgement and will invite the kind of bravery that only comes as trust is built.
In my clinical work, I use an integrative, client centred approach in the treatment of addiction, anxiety, body, gender identity and sexuality, career stress, depression, eating disorders, family issues, porn addiction, relationship issues, sexual abuse, sexual problems, and trauma.
Together we will explore which modalities best suits your needs: Attachment Theory; Emotion Focused Therapy (EFS / IFIOS); Existential Psychotherapy; Family Systems Therapy; Internal Family Systems (IFS); Narrative Therapy; Sex Therapy; Spiritual Direction; or Trauma-Related Dissociation interventions.
My master’s degree in intercultural psychotherapy and multi-faith psychospiritual care (Knox College, University of Toronto, Spring 2023) has brought to my practice a cross-cultural, all-faith awareness of the effect that cultural and spiritual experience may have one’s overall wellbeing -- both positive and negative. If cultural challenges or religious wound are part of your experience, they can be part of your healing.
I am known for my work in the performing arts for bringing awareness to issues of addiction, childhood trauma, eating disorders, gender identity and experience, mental health issues, and 2SLGBTQIAP+ dynamics. I continue to serve as an active member of outACTRAto (ACTRA) and the Association of Acting Coaches and Educators (AACE) in promoting advocacy for social, physical, and emotional safety in the performing arts and performing arts training.
