Dr. Christine Sloss, Ph.D.
Centre Founder & Director

Christine Sloss is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with children, youth, parents, families, couples and adults. She treats clients struggling with mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders (e.g. BPD), addictions, trauma, relationship issues, and family or parenting challenges.

Christine is competent providing a range of treatments, and has a particular specialization in DBT and CBT. In all of her work, Christine is empathic, compassionate and caring. She focuses on clients’ strengths and resilience, believes in them, and is dedicated to helping them live healthy and meaningful lives. She has a strong family focus and seeks to involve families, partners, or parents in treatment whenever relevant. Christine relies on research to inform her work, and is able to be flexible and creative to adapt empirically validated treatments to the unique needs and responses of individual clients and families.

Early in her career, Christine trained and worked as a music therapist, and so believes in the value of art and creativity in the treatment process. She extended her education as a therapist during her graduate studies in Chicago at DePaul University (completed her Ph.D. in 2002), where she provided services to high risk and often marginalized children, youth, families and parents. After coming to Toronto, she worked for eight years at CAMH, in the BPD clinic, the Eating Disorder and Addiction clinic, the Family Addiction Service and the Child, Youth and Family Program. She has been in private practice since 2009.

Outside of work, Christine enjoys playing games, reading, listening to music, being creative, hiking, camping, canoeing and skiing with her three children and partner.
