About Dale

I have several years of experience in private practice and have worked in a variety of settings, including a family agency, addictions facility, and with school staff and parents.

I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master degree in Social Work in 1971. Since then I have received a certificate from the Faculty of Medicine at University of Toronto in Advanced Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I have also taken extensive courses in group, bereavement and couples work.

I am a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers and the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (Registration #321306).

My work has been published in the Bulletin for the Society for the Advancement of Clinical Social Work (2000) and in Best of the Bulletin (2006). The Canadian Group Psychotherapy Association presented me with the Martin Fischer Scholarship Award in Calgary (2004) for writing about my experience as a group facilitator.

I have led an alcohol and narcotic addiction group at the Donwood Institute. One early problem in giving up an addiction is figuring out what to do with all the time that was spent supporting the habit. A group can be invaluable in providing coping skills.

I have helped patients get medical flights at Hope Air, a national charity to help Canadians who cannot afford a flight to receive their medical treatment. This is with the support of volunteer pilots and our airlines.

In 2002 I started a private practice in North Toronto. Then I extended my practice to Pickering in 2005. There I work with patients referred to me by their family doctor at Steeple Hill Medical Centre. I can offer a choice of these two offices for people in the Greater Toronto area and surrounding cities.

Keeping up to date

I strongly believe in professional development so that my skills and knowledge stay current. I attend conferences and scientific meetings. I read recent journal articles in my field at the Gerstein Library, University of Toronto, and CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health).
