Practice Owner/Registered Social Worker & Psychotherapist
Hi, my name is Jessica Robinson and I am a clinical social worker and Christian therapist, located in Toronto, Ontario. I am deeply committed to serving marginalized and racialized populations through community organizing and capacity building. Working from a community development, advocacy, and therapeutic approach, I aim to provide an Afrocentric and faith-based perspective. As a therapist, I am on a radical journey to decolonize spaces of healing for Black bodies.
As a Black woman with lived experiences of trauma, creating holistic and safe spaces of healing and intentionally holding space for my community are important to me. This is both a life mission and an assignment. I have an Honour 's Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a Master’s degree in Social Work, both earned at York University.
I humbly serve people of all ages, races, creeds, and religions. Over the last nine years, I have had the life-changing opportunity to provide support to Black bodies mainly in the areas of transition and post-traumatic growth, while focusing on emotional wholeness, wellness and a healthy faith and Christ-based spiritual life.
As a result, my specialities focus on:
My heart for the community led me to launch the Sisters in Praise foundation. Now known as 365 Ministries, as a Christian non-profit organization we aim to impact, inspire and empower this generation. Our core focus is to bring ministry outside of the four walls and into the community. In 2016, I launched My Sister's Keeper—a mentorship program and inner healing ministry, that inspires and empowers Black women to be leaders of today and the change of tomorrow.
My passion for service led me to serve as a mentor at Aboriginal Youth Empowerment seminars working with young girls of the Cree Nation in Quebec, Canada, visiting Haiti on mission’s trip, creating mentorship programs for young women, and hosting conferences for youth and young adults across Toronto.
