Michelle Sorensen, M. ED
Founder of the Resiliency Clinic and registered clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience.
Michelle Sorensen, the founder of the Resiliency Clinic, is a registered clinical psychologist with 25 years of experience providing counseling and psychological services for a wide range of personal problems and clinical issues. In her role as the clinical director of the Resiliency Clinic, Michelle supervises the clinical work of the team of over 20 therapists, and provides ongoing training and support. As the clinical supervisor, she is always available for questions and concerns from clients.
Michelle has reduced her clinical practice to focus on running the clinic, and cannot accept new clients. However, clients who reach out via the website, email or phone, will usually hear back directly from Michelle to help match them to a therapist. This personal approach is a core value at Resiliency Clinic.
Michelle believes in a collaborative model for therapy, based on her view that there are two experts in the room, both client and therapist. She sees the role of psychologists and psychotherapists as being very active, taking the lead when clients need guidance, and promotes this approach at the clinic and in her own clinical work.
Michelle has been registered with the Ontario College of Psychologists since 2006, first as a Psychological Associate and now as a Psychologist. Michelle is also a member of the Ontario Psychological Association. She has been in private practice since 2002, initially under the supervision of other psychologists.
She completed her Bachelor of Arts, Honours with first-class standing in 1997 at Queen’s University, and then graduated from her Master in Counselling Psychology at OISE at the University of Toronto in 2000.
