Equilibrium was founded by three mental health practitioners with a combined 50 years of experience working at The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
As colleagues at Canada’s largest mental health teaching hospital, we (psychologist Dr. Michelle Leybman and social workers Lyndsey Davies and Shira Green) bonded over our passion for clinical work and our shared dream of practicing privately in a rewarding team environment one day.
The more we talked, the clearer it became that our visions aligned. We all wanted to create a community-oriented space where excellent treatment was delivered with warmth and compassion, and a really positive and supportive environment for our team.
In 2021 we decided to take the leap and turn that vision into reality – and Equilibrium was born.
The name ‘equilibrium’ is meaningful on several levels. Firstly, it is a nod to our specialization in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, which is focused on balancing the tensions between opposites. It also speaks to our shared view that, at the end of the day, almost everything comes down to finding a balance.
The theme also exists within our partnership; though we are very different, our styles and strengths complement one another in a way that creates a pretty wonderful – you guessed it! – balance.
