Alisa Mcclain

Social Worker | Ontario

Hello, I’m Alisa. I am a queer, neurodivergent, polyamorous, feminist, and cisgender white woman who is committed to anti-oppression, social justice, and the self-reflection and lifelong unlearning this requires.

I have been practicing social work since 2012 with a focus on issues related to queer and trans folks, body neutrality, harm reduction, and body-based trauma recovery modalities.

I aim to position myself as a co-collaborator in your journey and will follow your lead. Using a feminist power-sharing framework, I believe that the therapeutic alliance and a genuine, authentic, caring, and attuned relationship is the foundational element of successful therapy, and so I will work hard to earn your trust and build that alliance with you.

Are you:

  • Queer or trans?
  • Neurodivergent/diverse?
  • Non-monogamous?

Specific foci include:

  • Utilizing EMDR for trauma recovery
