Fiona Thomas

I am completing my doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Ryerson University and completed my predoctoral residency with the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium. Prior to pursuing my PhD in clinical psychology, I completed an MSc at the London School of Economics in Health, Community and Development and obtained a Certificate in Global Mental Health from the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma (Harvard School of Public Health). I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association, Ontario Psychological Association, and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.

I have worked with adults, couples, adolescents, children, and families across a variety of settings, including several hospital and community-based settings. I have a particular interest in working with PTSD and complex trauma with adults, couples, and families, as well as at the prenatal and postnatal stage for expecting and new mothers. I have experience providing assessment and treatment for a range of presenting issues, including mood and anxiety concerns, behavioural and emotional difficulties, attachment disturbances, psychosis, alcohol and substance-use difficulties, and life and family stressors. I have also had the privilege to provide mental health support to Canadian Veterans.

In addition to my clinical work with McKenzie Psychology, I am currently completing a postdoctoral fellowship in PTSD and implementation science on a joint project between Ryerson University and Stanford University.

I bring a systems perspective to my clinical work, understanding that we all have different starting points and circumstances. The principles of equity, diversity, inclusivity, and anti-oppression are intrinsic to my approach. I welcome the opportunity to work alongside individuals from all backgrounds, identities, and abilities. I strive to be genuine, curious, and collaborative in my therapeutic approach. Watching clients learn to harness internal wisdom to facilitate healing, improve resilience and achieve meaningful change is a privilege and the most rewarding aspect of my clinical work.
