My name is Natalie Gold — a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) in Toronto, Canada, certified in Gestalt Therapy as a post-graduate of the 4-year Training Program for psychotherapists at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto (GIT). But I have over 7 years of Gestalt training, including 2 with the GIT’s Jorge Rosner in the 1980s.

I hold an Honors B.A. in Psychology (Ryerson University, 2011 – now Toronto Metropolitan University), and a one-year Graduate Certificate in Addictions and Mental Health Counseling (Durham College, 2012).

In the past, I attended the State University of New York at Buffalo, majoring in Honors English and Theatre Arts, and later Toronto’s Ryerson Institute, majoring in Radio/TV Arts.

Professional memberships include:

      • CRPO (College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario)
      • OAMHP (Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals)
      • IAAGT (International Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy).

Learning is a constant, and ongoing workshops and seminars are essential for a therapist to stay up-to-date. But it is my clients who teach me the most.
