As part of my journey, Sylvia encouraged me to write about the people in my life I can count on - she has easily become one of those people."I know I can count on Sylvia because she has given me a safe space to share my deepest and scariest thoughts and experiences and pushes me to see them and talk about them through a different lense."

I have been working with Sylvia for 2 years now and I highly recommend her.I initially came to Sylvia because i was looking for a therapist who specialized in disordered eating (which i have been suffering from for more than 2 decades). She was the only one I found that was both a dietician and a psychotherapist, which i thought was a winning combination.Working with her exceeded my expectations. I am healthier and no longer indulge in self-destructive eating behaviours. I feel more confident in my ability to handle life stresses, especially in standing up for myself and creating healthy boundaries. Also, my relationships with my parents greatly improved, after being strained all my life.It's been a long and hard process, but Sylvia has made it achievable for me. She is understanding, empathetic, and encouraging. She provides useful advice and tools that work. She is respectful and honest - she tells me what I need to hear instead of what I want to hear, and that has been invaluable to me. I am happy I found her.

I'm very surprised by the negative review written about Sylvia, and can assure you that the comments about her lack of sensitivity, tact, and empathy are not true. I am recovering from disordered eating and Sylvia has been a huge part to my success. She has provided me with the tools I need to regain control of my life and to challenge my fear of food. She is sincerely understanding of my problems and we've had meaningful, truly enlightening conversations. I highly recommend her services.

I was greatly helped by Eating Dynamiks and Therapy’s services. Sylvia brings a rare blend of knowledge about nutrition combined with therapeutic expertise and compassion in helping people manage their issues surrounding food – a winning combination that can help unlock long-held resistance to balanced eating and uncover emotional connections that can hamper one’s progress toward overall well-being.I came to Sylvia with decade-long food intolerances and no relief or satisfactory diagnosis to help me make sufficient, healthful food choices. My mental health was suffering and I had become afraid – almost phobic – of eating. She worked with me to introduce new “challenge” foods at a manageable pace and to clear some of the emotional obstacles that stood in my way.I left mere months later with a much more varied menu and greater insight into which foods were actually problematic – and I can now enjoy the pleasures of eating again and look forward to greater overall health and well being. And this was even without the benefit of face-to-face meetings during the pandemic (and the only reason I did not give five stars).

I have been with Sylvia for a couple of months working with her for dietetics as well as pyschotherapy. Sylvia is kind, compassionate, and understanding. She always makes me feel validated and heard and always makes great effort to understand me. I always look forward to our conversations because I leave feeling empowered and capable of creating my own happiness. She is wonderful. I highly recommend.

I wish there was an option to give less than 1 star. Because to be frank, Sylvia is absolutely the worst dietitian I have ever worked with, and I have worked with several. Sylvia is unprofessional, she was 15 minutes late to a meeting she specifically asked me to come in early for, because she was out buying “toner” for her printer. I wish this was the worst of it.... her platform is meant to be about working with people with eating disorders, yet she completely lacks empathy, tact and sensitivity, three things a health care professional should absolutely possess. Sylvia said things to me in our session like, “wow, do you see how much you have to change,” and “your psychiatrist clearly needs to work with you on this further.” When I explained that the plan she had given me seemed unfeasible, she told me it was the job of my psychiatrist to help me through it. She told me that she would never ask her clients to count calories, while handing me a 1200 calorie a day meal plan. Most importantly, she gave me a plan that included white pasta, muffins and pancakes, after I informed her that I had an issue with pre diabetes and had to be very careful of my sugar. Sylvia proposes a cookie cutter plan that is CERTAIN to cause anxiety and stress for those who have issues withe emotional overeating. Not only do I feel that she incapable of performing the basic duties of her job, she is also irresponsible and proposed things that my health professionals confirmed would be detrimental to my health. When I explained all of this and asked politely for a refund, I was asked to come in for another session. She doesn't seem to understand that the last thing a person wants to do after receiving terrible treatment, is to waste time to do it all over again. When I explained this, she stopped answering me, and has been ignoring every email I have sent in in the past two weeks. DO NOT see Sylvia unless you want terrible advice, that wastes your money. My fitness pal is more effective than her...NOTE TO YOU SYLVIA: After reading your response, it is clear that you are unwilling to take any responsibility for the detrimental advice you gave me. I told you I would not write a review if you simply refunded me for our sessions. I asked for that refund because what I paid for, is NOT what I received. My identity, as you can see is NOT anonymous, I have no problem with stating who wrote this review, because frankly, I am in the right here, and I have NOTHING to hide. You know it, I know it, and each of the 3 other doctors I consulted re: your advice, know it too. Before you get on your high horse and try to to discredit my claims, understand that all the evidence is here to show that you did not show a duty of care to me, as your patient. For this fact, I should receive a refund. Our "toxic back and forth," is more just me trying to get your attention, and you completely ignoring those attempts. I emailed you 7 + times and gave you the option of resolving this between you and I, but you did not take it. Don't try and act like your "meeting of the minds," was a just solution to what your advice put me through, it was simply a means of saving face without having to return the money you should have returned weeks ago. I will undoubtedly be passing this exchange along to the Social Board of Ontario regulatory board. Your response shows exactly want kind of health care worker you are, and it is not impressive.
