Robyn Letson, MSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker
Robyn is a queer white transmasculine settler who has been actively engaged in feminist and LGBTQ2S+ community work for over 10 years. They completed their Master of Social Work degree at Dalhousie University. They are a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and a member of the Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW). They also hold degrees in Literature and Theatre Studies. Robyn provides individual counselling and psychotherapy to youth and adults.
Robyn has been honoured to practice for the past several years in community-based settings with people who are systematically marginalized in mainstream health and mental health services. The lived experiences of their clients, who have invariably found brilliant ways to survive injustice, are central to how they frame their practice.
Robyn draws upon the clinical modalities that informed their social work training, including narrative, solution-focused and cognitive therapies, along with a growing focus on interpersonal neurobiology and polyvagal informed approaches to trauma work. In their use of these clinical tools, Robyn aims to be consistently guided by liberatory politics – anti-racism, anti-capitalism, feminism, Indigenous sovereignty, and disability justice – and an accompanying sense of humility, compassion, and solidarity.
