Headway Mental Health

Registered Psychotherapist, Joshua Dvorkin, MPsy, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying),
As a dedicated psychotherapist, I specialize in providing compassionate support and guidance to individuals living with HIV/AIDS. I understand the unique challenges and emotional complexities that come with this diagnosis, and I am committed to helping my clients navigate the physical, psychological, and social aspects of their journey. With a deep understanding of the stigma, fear, and isolation often associated with HIV/AIDS, I create a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals can explore their emotions, fears, and hopes. Together, we work collaboratively to address issues such as disclosure, self-esteem, coping with medication, managing relationships, and navigating the healthcare system. Utilizing evidence-based therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-informed care, and mindfulness techniques, I help my clients develop effective strategies to cope with the challenges of living with HIV/AIDS. I also provide support in addressing emotional distress, depression, anxiety, and any other mental health concerns that may arise. Through our therapeutic relationship, I aim to empower individuals to enhance their overall well-being, build resilience, and find a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives beyond their diagnosis. My ultimate goal is to help my clients embrace their strengths, foster a sense of self-acceptance, and live fulfilling and empowered lives, breaking free from the limitations and stigma often associated with HIV/AIDS.

Although we have come a long way in the treatment and management of HIV/AIDS, there is still a lot of stigma around a positive status. I am also holding that HIV/AIDS disproportionately affects men who are into men (2SLGBTQIA++) and drug users who make up a large proportion of my clients. I am here to provide stigma free support and solidarity.

Registered Social Worker, RSW
Our team members are all 2SLGBTQIA+ identified and are happy to support folks living with HIV/ AIDS. We understand the shame and stigma that can be attached to this diagnosis, but also know how to encourage folks to live a happy, healthy and full life anyway! Depression is all encompassing. It affects all aspects of our life including our physical health, our emotional state, our thinking patterns, our behaviours and reactions, and our relationships. We often lose interest in participating in life and this can lead to feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness. Although we can feel like a lost cause at times, there is always hope! Working together in therapeutic relationship, we can can help you reconnect with your joy in a supportive and compassionate way. If you want to start living more fully again, book a free consultation or book a session today!

Toronto, Ontario therapist: Centre for Psychology and Emotional Health, psychologist

Centre for Psychology and Emotional Health

On our team is Carmine who was an activist, advocate, outreach worker, and counsellor in the LGBTQ communities in Milano and in Toronto. He has experience working with individuals struggling with issues around coming out, body image and disordered eating, exploring their gender identity or sexual orientation, or newly diagnosed with HIV. He has also worked with couples navigating the complexity of same sex relationships. In addition our team includes Bill who led a randomized-controlled trial of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for gay men living with HIV that was the first to indicate psychological improvements for mindfulness in this population. This study inspired him to explore integrating self-compassion more deeply into mindfulness-based interventions to better address harsh self-criticism, shame and inter-personal injuries, leading him to develop EFMT.
