Tiffany the Therapist & Tiffany Burtch Therapy started as a one woman show - a private practice. I have now expanded to an associate practice and have asked Zoe on to continue to provide quality care to the community of Guelph and surrounding areas. As Covid-19 continues to be present in our lives, we are both working remotely and are happy to accept clients from anywhere in Ontario.
Currently, all of our therapists are white. We acknowledge that there is systemic racism that would have contributed to our ability to access schooling and placements without prejudice. Previous therapy wisdom has encouraged us (therapists), as a group, to be a-political. But, we now know that that does harm to populations who need us to be clear, to be safe, to be transparent about the work that we have done. We have done a lot of personal work around race and racism, and have a sense of where growing edges are. Holding the space for anger and rage at a system that we benefit from is something we know to be within our capacity. We strongly encourage all potential clients to ask questions and all potential therapists about training, comfortability, and social location. We reserve some sliding scale spots exclusively for Indigenous folks and People of Colour.
