Our Mission is to provide top quality professional therapy training while serving the community by offering affordable therapy to all!
Affordable Therapy Ontario welcomes all students to apply to our practicum program. We welcome all students to apply, as we celebrate and affirm all persons of all cultures, ethnicities, faiths, ages, abilities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and intersectionalities.
Before working with their own clients, therapist interns are provided a thorough orientation and training by our supervisors. Interns are also provided the opportunity to observe our senior therapists in session to get real-life feel of what it’s like to conduct a therapy session. Therapist interns are then provided client files in a measured fashion, so that caseloads grow gradually and sustainably.
We offer therapist interns the opportunity to complete their required Direct Client Contact (DCC) hours by working with individuals, couples, and families in our practice, Building Bridges Psychotherapy.
Interns may be offered the opportunity to work in-person at one of our three locations in southern Ontario (Mississauga, Guelph, and Vaughan). Interns will also provide therapy remotely over video and phone.
We also provide intensive, thorough, and high quality individual and group supervision to our students on a frequent basis, by our experienced clinical supervisors.
Congratulations on submitting your application! If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted in the near future. We thank all who apply, but only those considered for an interview will be contacted.
I believe that there is good in every person, and hope in every situation. I believe that relationships are the heart of our well-being and mental health concerns. I decided to create Building Bridges Psychotherapy to help people connect with what’s most important to them—family, partners, culture, community, and themselves.
After years of working with thousands of clients, I realized there was a need for affordable therapy. At the same time, students have been reaching out on a continual basis asking to do their internship at our practice. The solution to both was simple, so I created Affordable Therapy Ontario with the goal of making therapy financially accessible to all, while at the same time providing a top of the line training program for the next generation of therapists.
Hello! My name is Sierrah Hamilton, and I am a Client Care Specialist for Building Bridges Psychotherapy. In this role, I focus on fostering and maintaining positive relationships with our clients, and ensuring they are comfortable, satisfied and heard.
I am in the fourth year of my Specialized Honours Bachelor of Arts degree at York University. I am personally working towards a career in clinical psychology, with a special interest in complex trauma and attachment. In addition to my role here, I contribute to two research labs and plan to pursue research-based graduate studies in clinical psychology following my undergrad.
Outside my work and studies, I love connecting with nature, reading, and hanging out with my cat, Cleo.
