Dr. Marcia Sirota is a board-certified psychiatrist. She attended medical school at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada and completed her psychiatry residency at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY in 2000. She currently practices in Toronto, Canada, specializing in individual and group psychotherapy for adults. She established the Ruthless Compassion Institute in 2009 to bring her philosophy of empowerment, personal responsibility and loving-kindness to a wider population. Dr. Sirota offers workshops every spring and summer for women who overeat. The goal of the workshops is to enable women to understand the emotions underlying their eating and weight issues and to give them the psychological tools for healing their compulsive behaviors. Dr. Sirota wrote “Never Diet Again” in response to the workshop participants’ request for a written version of the workshop experience. She has also recorded a companion CD to the book, “Visualizations for Empowerment,” which contains ten guided visualization exercises and two affirmations which people can use in conjunction with the book or on their own. The book and CD are available on the Ruthless Compassion Institute website or at Caversham Booksellers in Toronto. Dr. Sirota also runs periodic workshops on “Creativity and Empowerment,” and leads annual summer weekend intensive therapy retreats.
