My name is Nora, I’m Canadian with a cultural history that is European and an Academic History that has absolutely NOTHING to do with cannabis…well, for the most part
Recently, I was asked to join a team looking to becoming an Ontario LP and was given the honour of filling out the daunting application form that rests to my right, patiently awaiting my attention. However, my day job is that of a seasonal professor and, more so, a Registered Ontario Psychotherapist. So, I spend my days doing my very best to help people out with their mental health issues and my goal is to contribute to reducing the stigma associated with individuals that actually reach out to professionals such as I am, for the help in the first place. Here, it’s a stigma! In New York or L.A., it’s the “in” thing to tell people that you’re on your way to talk to your therapist so why can’t it be cool over here? My wish is to abolish that stigma as much as possible.
