Emma Stafford-Coyte

Registered Social Worker (RSW)

I am a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist with 7 years of counselling experience. I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto, and completed trauma training through the Trauma Therapy Program at Women’s College Hospital. I have completed the following additional trainings: Internal Family System Therapy (IFS) skills and competencies, Level 1 Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), EFT Couples, and 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. I have worked in hospital, community, Government, and academic settings.


I work relationally, integrating various therapeutic modalities, to facilitate self-led healing change. My approach is client-centred, strength-based, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed. My expertise is in addressing mental health concerns (e.g. anxiety, depression), the impacts of trauma,  interpersonal conflict, low self-esteem, substance use difficulties, relationship challenges, and grief & loss.

I am committed to lifelong learning and continues to evolve personally and professionally. To maintain my professional accountability, I am an active member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) as well as the Ontario Association of Social Worker (OASW) and participates in regular clinical supervision.
