Marla Schreiber, MSW, RSW
Counsellor and Relationship Coach: Polyamory & non-monogamy, Psychotherapy, LGBTQ Counselling and psychotherapy, Couple’s Counselling, Relational Psychotherapy
Hello, I’m Marla, a counsellor and facilitator. I’ve been designing and leading workshops about diversity, sexuality and relationships for over 10 years. I have expanded my practice to include sex-positive coaching and therapy for individuals, couples, and constellations* of people engaged in a wide range of relationship formations. My aim is to offer accessible, wholistic*, non-judgmental services to people with diverse backgrounds and identities.
My work is informed by anti-oppressive, anti-racist, intersectional feminist, and harm-reduction philosophies. I aim to co-create respectful, safer spaces where peoples’ identities are understood within the framework of their own life experiences. My approach varies depending on the unique relationships and needs of those who collaborate with me. I aim to achieve attunement with others as a way to navigate organically between therapeutic techniques. The focus of every session is offering a supportive, empathetic space for self-expression and exploration.
The best way to get a feel for my style is to call or message me for a free consultation: firstname.lastname@example.org or (514) 714-3675
We might be a good fit if you’re looking for support in the areas of:
There are stairs leading to my offices (Mondays down one flight and Tuesdays up 2 flights). If this makes my services inaccessible to you, I also offer services online and over the phone.
Credentials & Training:
I tend to begin with a relational/talk-based style and incorporate alternative techniques when applicable. My training includes Trauma-informed practice, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based therapies, Narrative Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Attachment work, Brief Therapy, Creative Arts Therapy, Sexual Health Education, and Reiki.
*Constellations refer to partnerships of more than 2 people.
*Wholistic, for me, is about the deep connection between a person’s physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It also considers the person within the context of their environment.
* “Coming out” is a term that is often used to describe the process of beginning to share one’s sexual orientation with others. For those who are undergoing gender transformations, or people engaged in non-traditional relationship formations, “coming out” is a similar process of sharing intimate parts of one’s life with others.
