Dr. Michael Grossman specializes in therapy for adults and youth who experience a range of challenges related to mood, anxiety, self-esteem, relationship stress, life transitions, managing strong emotions, and psychosis. He incorporates evidence-based principles into his practice, largely drawing from cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Dr. Grossman prioritizes the therapeutic relationship to ensure that individuals with diverse ethnic, cultural, gender, and sexual identities feel supported and encouraged to achieve their personal goals in therapy. He brings warmth, genuine curiosity, and humour to his work with clients, and takes a collaborative approach to tailor treatment to the unique needs of each individual.
Dr. Grossman completed his M.A. in Developmental Psychology and Education at the University of Toronto, his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Queen’s University, and his predoctoral residency at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. In addition to his work at the clinic, Dr. Grossman holds a staff psychologist position in the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Psychosis Service at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, where he supervises trainees, provides assessment and treatment to clients, and oversees research projects within the service.
