Myrlie Marcelin, M.S.W.

Clinical Social Worker

Myrlie Marcelin holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Concordia University, a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) and is currently training in Couple-and-Family Therapy at McGill University to obtain her psychotherapist permit. Myrlie approaches counselling with an anti-oppressive and collaborative lens that recognizes the place of structural oppression in mental health challenges. Myrlie hopes her career will allow her to uplift BIPOC & LGBTQ+ communities by advocating for people whose voices have traditionally been ignored and overlooked, and also by showing clients that Black mental health professionals exist and are working to reduce harm for the populations that they serve.
Myrlie’s experience includes telephone counsellor, student case worker, volunteer helpline listener and sliding scale supervised student offering individual, couple, and family therapy. Throughout her career, she hopes to be able to continue offering quality counselling to marginalized populations and ethnic communities. Working with a systemic and attachment-focused framework, she has supported clients with depression, anxiety disorders, interpersonal difficulties, emotional dysregulation, conjugal violence, and complex trauma. As a private practice clinician, Myrlie works towards empowering, supporting and critically exploring individuals, couples and families in a therapeutic capacity.
