Meet Our Toronto Psychologists
Erica Berman, Ph.D.
I am a Clinical Counsellor and Associate with Clear Path Solutions. I have degrees in Sociology, Counselling Psychology and Exercise Sciences as well as a special certificate in Infertility Counselling. I am a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP), the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) and the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada (IAAC).
I work with clients struggling with infertility, pregnancy loss, trauma, relationship/intimacy issues, anxiety, weight-loss and low self-esteem. I offer both traditional office-based therapy as well as ‘walk therapy’, which combines the physical and psychological benefits of counselling and physical activity. For clients seeking assistance with weight-loss, I can include exercise program design, nutrition advice and diet planning along with emotional support.
I currently teach spinning classes and write for various online publications on topics related to health, fitness and fertility.

Sandy Kiaizadeh, M.A., A.T.C.
I provide solutions-focused counselling and life coaching that is primarily grounded in the practice of mindfulness and acceptance based strategies. I believe that you already have the inner wisdom needed to achieve your wellbeing and happiness. My role is to shine a light on your strengths, and guide you through a process of self-inquiry that will increase your self-insight and self-compassion, and help you to feel more empowered to make lasting, positive changes in your life.
I have experience working with adolescents and adults of all ages who are faced with a variety of life’s challenges – such as depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and day-to-day stress. Other clients I’ve worked with have sought help with me regarding their sense of self-esteem and self-worth, life transitions, LGBTQ issues, family conflict, and vocational stress.
I have a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, and am certified as an Adler Trained Coach. I have received additional training in Clinical Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solutions Focused Brief Therapy, trauma, LGBTQ issues, and Alternative Dispute Resolution. As a mental health and wellness advocate, I blog regularly for Huffington Post Canada and other social media, have been a guest speaker on radio, and offer workplace lunch and learn seminars in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. I am fluently bilingual in English and French.

I am also registered with the Indian Association of Clinical Psychology. I am also a Blue Cross Interim Federal Health Provider.
In my ten years of experience as a Clinical Psychologist, School Psychologist, Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Past Life Regression Therapist, I have come across clients who had issues with almost all facets of life from mild adjustment problems (Relationships, Self-Development, etc.,) to those with Clinical symptoms suggesting Mental Illness. I am firm believer in spreading the knowledge and have been acknowledged in my profession by a ‘National Prestige Award’ in India. Being a Mental Health Professional requires continuous professional development, which usually takes the form of ongoing course work, supervision and research. I have more of a natural bend towards doing REBT, CBT , evidence based, brief Psychotherapies and Hypnotherapy and the application of mind relaxation-based techniques (Mindfulness) to address negative patterns of thinking associated with a hurtful childhood or past life event, obstructing the growth and functionality of an individual either at work, sports, relations, sexuality etc. I enjoy conducting workshops, as well as group and individual sessions, and my Hypnotherapy Basic and Advance certification courses are International Hypnosis Association Aprroved. I offer counselling services in English, Hindi, and Marathi. Also provide Skype sessions.
Always Remember, “You just have to handle your PRESENT and the FUTURE handles itself…”
