Nolan Blodgett, MSW, RSW

As a trans and queer identified person who was raised in rural Ontario, I am eager to leverage my lived experience and professional training to provide a safe and inclusive therapeutic space for individuals to explore their experiences of internalized shame and oppression.

I have completed a Master of Social Work, specializing in Mental Health, at the University of Toronto in 2019 and am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (License #833175) and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. Prior to this, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Trent University (2017).

I have experience working with youth and adults with an emphasis on trans and gender diverse folks and the LGBTQ2S community. I have supported clients with a range of presenting issues, including anxiety and depression, body image, eating disorders, gender/sexuality-related issues, personality disorders, intergenerational trauma, complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and substance use. My approach is grounded in a trauma-informed, intersectional anti-oppressive framework and I aim to foster resilience and empowerment using a warm, collaborative approach to support folks in meeting their goals.

Kelly O'Sullivan, MSW Student

I'm Kelly O'Sullivan, a queer cis woman, in my final year of a Master of Social Work graduate degree at the University of Toronto.

 

As a registered yoga teacher with training in hypnotherapy, meditation, breath-work, and other somatic practices, I embrace a trauma-informed, embodied, multi-dimensional approach to therapy.

 

My therapeutic approach is grounded in a wholistic framework. Informed by emotionally focused therapy (EFT), neuroscience, Indigenous-based learning, and other traditional healing practices, my work centers around collaboration, cultural safety, and intersectionality. I recognize and understand the profound impact of oppression and colonization on individuals and communities.

 

With over two decades of experience working in the downtown Toronto east community as an advocate, helper, and crisis intervention counsellor, I returned to school as a commitment to continuous growth and learning. I predominantly work with adults from marginalized groups, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, and survivors of trauma. I believe in the resilience of those who have endured abuse, trauma and harm, recognizing the innate capacity of our bodies, minds, and spirits to heal when provided with support, a sense of safety, and a compassionate space.
