About Dr. Joe Flanders

Joe has been trained to deliver psychedelic-assisted therapy through Numinus and the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). He also has training in Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS; Level 2), Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

He holds the Advanced Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Facilitation Certification from the Centre for Mindfulness Studies (CMS) and the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto (FIFSW) as well as the Advanced Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Facilitation Certification from the CMS. He is an approved MBSR mentor with CMS.

Joe obtained his PhD in Clinical Psychology from McGill University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.



Joe has been on a life-long journey in the pursuit of the most effective approaches for cultivating well-being – his own and that of his clients. Accompanying others through their own development, healing and transformation is among the most meaningful aspects of Joe’s life. His approach is grounded in these guiding principles:

  • Connection and relationship-centred care
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Mindfulness and embodiment
  • Harm Reduction
  • Evidence-based practice

Clients describe Joe as practical, open, non-judgmental, smart and compassionate. He is equally at home coaching others through work stress as he is going deep into trauma and recovery.
