Background and Credentials

photo of Ruth KazdanI have been working as a psychotherapist since 2000.

My main training took place over a number of years at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto, and I continue my education with workshops, conferences, courses and seminars.

I participate in two peer supervision groups, and volunteer as a board member with the Psychotherapy Referral Service.

I am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and a clinical member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy, and of the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists.

I have a BA in English Language and Literature. Before training to become a therapist, I worked as a musician and piano teacher.

I have practiced yoga and meditation for many years, and, if appropriate, I incorporate mindfulness as a therapeutic technique.
