Meet Marty Lampkin

Anti-Oppression Educator

Professor & Clinical Social Worker

In Solidarity, I welcome you!
As a clinical social worker working from an Anti-Oppressive, Anti-Racist and Anti-Colonial lens, I provide direct clinical support to individuals and families including their caregivers who are living with developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, intellectual disabilities and/or dual diagnosis.

As a psychotherapist, in my counselling practice, I understand that interlocking systems of oppression ingrained in society contribute to the personal life challenges that children, youth and adults experience. As a counsellor, I works to explore these intersections through a holistic perspective that helps clients recognize their strength and resilience and reach their personal goals. 

My specializations include working with adults
living with Developmental Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome and Dual Diagnosis by providing adapted counselling methods. My passion is also in working with individuals and families, including those from the Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Colour (BIPOC) communities, who experience anxiety, depression, mental health concerns, death, loss, grief, trauma, abuse and violence, as well as issues related to self-esteem, body image, identity and racial injustice. 
I am currently a supportive lead to Anti-Black Racism education, organizational change and training in efforts to address current workplace issues, lack of diversity and cultural humility/cultural awareness. I am have actively supporting the Diversity Inclusion and Equity Strategic Planning and Evaluation Process.
Lastly, I pursue my love for education as a Professor in the Social Service Worker Program teaching a range of courses including Case Management: Anti-Oppressive Lens, Sociology and Concurrent Disorders. As an educator, I integrate theory with direct clinical practice through expressive arts and group facilitation in class learning.

My clinical work includes:

-providing individual counselling to clients and/or family counselling to their caregivers including family mediation.
- providing complex case management and system navigation through coordinating and advocating for access to services/supports to create a circle of care to meet the unique needs of each client across the  justice sector, health sector, the mental health sector, child welfare system and the developmental service sector.
