About

Dr. Massey joined the Firestone CBT Clinic to pursue her passion in providing couples therapy and treatment for disordered eating/body image concerns. She also possesses expertise treating mood and anxiety disorders, as well as life transition issues with adults and adolescents. Dr. Massey has received extensive training in couples therapy through The Gottman Institute and anticipates becoming certified in Gottman Method Couples Therapy in 2022. Based on 40 years of research, Gottman Method is a skills-based approach to improving relationships, incorporating work on intimacy, conflict management, and the pursuit of shared dreams.
In addition to spending several years treating eating disorders in private practice at the Centre for Cognitive Therapy, Dr. Massey served as a Senior Psychologist/Eating Disorders Coordinator for Johns Hopkins University's Counselling Center and also worked for The Renfrew Center, the first residential treatment facility for eating disorders in the USA.
Dr. Massey’s approach to therapy is primarily cognitive-behavioural, while integrating principles from acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. She intertwines these treatments with a deep understanding of evolutionary psychology and cognitive science — as well as deep compassion, warmth and humor.
