A bit about Sylvia and
Eating Dynamiks & Therapy

(RD) Registered Dietitian
Sylvia has been a Registered Dietitian with the College of Dietitians of Ontario since 1998. Over the years her varied dietetic experience has included working in hospitals with a psychiatric and a paediatric team as well as within Diabetes Management and Eating Disorders treatment programs.
(BSW) Bachelor of Social Work
Her privileged role working in various hospitals across the GTA as a Registered Dietitian, allowed Sylvia to come to recognize that we eat (or don’t eat) for reasons other than to address our physiological need for nutrition. With mounting curiosity, Sylvia enrolled in the York University Bachelors of Social Work program and formally began her journey of gaining insight in the other dynamics that drive human hunger. She graduated from York University in 2005.
(MSW, RSW) Psychotherapy
In 2006 Sylvia earned a Masters Degree from the prestigious Wilfrid Laurier University, Masters of Social Work (MSW) Advanced Standings program. Her eight months of practical psychotherapy training was completed at the Hospital for Sick Children. This theoretical and practical training prepared her well for her current role assisting children, adolescents and adults with the management of all forms of eating disorders, sadness, depression, anxiety, fears, feelings of being stuck, grief & loss as well as other transition stages in life.

You may be wondering, “What is Eating Management?”

Eating management is helping you with the tangible, everyday aspects of eating. This includes helping with the mental struggles that one may experience when they eat something that they’ve not had in a long time and they are afraid of, for instance carbs. I call it grains and starches, you call it carbs.

A lot of clients come in with a lot of anxiety over eating carbs even though they know that it is what they need to take them to the next step.

So this brings me to the other very, very important aspect of what I do here. As a psychotherapist, my job is to listen to you, to ask the right questions at the right time. The answer to these questions might be really difficult to you, but my job is to help walk you through the difficulties of hearing these questions, the difficulty of answering these questions so that you can get to the best life you would like for yourself.

If there is anything you have heard today that you think would be a benefit to yourself or someone you know, do not hesitate to give me a call. Until then, have yourself a great day!
