About Me.

Marty Lampkin (she/her) is a woman of Afro-Caribbean Decent who is a Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist and Professor, working from an Anti-Oppressive, Anti-Colonial and Anti-Racist  intersectional lens to support the resilience and self determination of marginalized individuals and communities in our society in Tkoronto on Turtle Island. 

When she is not dancing to sounds of sweet calypso and soca music or eating roti, she provides  direct clinical support to individuals and families including their caregivers who are living with Developmental Disabilities, Autism Spectrum (ASD), Mental Health/ Dual Diagnosis and/or Intellectual Disabilities. She is strong advocate for Accessibility and inclusive care for BIPOC communities with Disabilities and their caregivers. 


As a psychotherapist (Counsellor), 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. I also work with individuals and families, including those from the Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Colour (BIPOC) communities, who are 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. 


 My work includes  leading 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. 


Finally, I pursue my love for education as a Professor in the School of Social and Community Services, teaching a range of courses on Anti-Oppressive Theory, Counselling, Mental Health, Power Privilege and Identity as well as Substance Use/Concurrent Disorders. As an educator, I integrate theory with direct clinical practice through  group facilitation in class learning.
