My Approach to Helping

I believe that there is good in every person and hope in every situation. I have helped individuals, couples, and families heal, grow, and connect. As a relational therapist, I appreciate the impact that our relationships have on our well-being. I do not see clients as having something wrong with their minds that necessarily needs to be fixed. Rather, I see my clients as unique individuals, each with their own stories and perspectives, embedded in important relationships and contexts that impact them. I see strengths and I see hope, even when it feels like there is none.

I provide a calm, non-judgmental, and supportive space for my clients to explore deeper emotions and gain insight. Further, by using a strength-based, solution-focused approach, I help my clients by collaboratively finding strategies to move forward, which is especially helpful when clients feel stuck with their mental health and relationships.

For more information on my training and how I do individual, couple, or family therapy, feel free to view my website. Feel free to check out my videos and speaking events as well. If you have any questions, I am happy to speak to you on the phone or via email. If you and I are not the right fit, I am happy to help you find the right therapist for you.

More Info About My Practice

I work with a diverse team of a dozen therapists who are also all available to work with you. You can learn more about our practice, Building Bridges Psychotherapy, at bbtherapy.ca. We believe that healing happens through connection! We offer individual, couple, and family therapy across the GTA and online.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I too was on the fence about going to therapy many years ago. I waited till I hit rock bottom before seeing a therapist, but you don't have to. So if you're on the fence about investing in your mental health with therapy, it doesn't hurt to have a free consultation with a therapist to see if it's right for you. You can book a free 15 minute phone call with me on my website, justinthetherapist.com.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I have struggled with my own mental health for years, until I saw a therapist. It changed my life for the better, beyond what I even imagined possible! Having experienced the transformative power of therapy in my own life, I decided to become a therapist. Now, I have helped hundreds of individuals, couples, and families with their mental health!
