Albert Chan, APA USA, RSW

Hello! I am Albert Chan, and specialize in Couple, Sex and Family Therapy. I currently practice as a Registered Social Worker with an integrative and humanistic approach that includes both spiritual and existential approaches. I am educated as both a clinical psychologist and social worker, however, my registration is with the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

My work includes not only my belief in humanity but also my experience as a father and husband. I have over 30 years of experience in therapy that spans many fields. I have gained experience working with a large breadth of different communities, through being employed as a community worker, career counsellor, family, marriage, and sex therapist, MVA assessor, crisis worker, and EAP consultant.

I have also enjoyed many years as a professor and department head as well as a clinical director. I have had the pleasure of continuing my education throughout my career as a therapist. I believe myself to be a lifelong learner. After completing my Master’s in Education in Counselling Psychology and McGill University, I continued to complete a Master’s in Theology Study and a Psy D. in Clinical Psychology. I have also received certificates in Sex Therapy and Gottman Method Level 3 for couples.

I have a wide range of clients that I have worked with. My age ranges from working with children, youth, and parents with different learning needs, social isolation, and behavioural issues as well as families struggling with complex family dynamics, bereavement, and conflict. I specialize in working with couples experiencing intimacy and sexual issues, infidelity as well as separation and divorce. I am well versed in working with individuals as well and have specialized in leading groups for chronic illness, cancer survivors, and families, as well as working with men who may be seeking help with fathering, emotional silence, social anxiety, sexual issues, and childhood trauma. Individually I have many years of experience working with PTSD and domestic violence survivors. I enjoy working with OCD, ADHD, self-esteem, faith, and career issues. I utilize a unique and tailor-made approach to each client, couple, and family I work with. I invite your full self into the session with me to create an experience that fits you.
