The reality is, everyone has mental health but not everyone has been given the tools or safe space to learn how to take care of it, let alone acknowledge that they have it. A lie many believe is that in order to go to therapy, there needs to be something very big and wrong going on in our lives, however, I like to challenge this narrative. While yes, therapy is a place to unpack big experiences, this is also a safe space to explore your day to day quality of life. Picture yourself moving into your first house. You walk in and there are some very large boxes awaiting you. As you unpack these large boxes filled with appliances, your clothes, the bedding, you also come across smaller boxes that didn't seem important at first but hold things you need each day like a can opener, sewing kit, first aid kit and miscellaneous tools. In order for the house to come together and feel safe, all the boxes need to be unpacked. When you are ready, I'd like to help you make your internal house feel like home again.

When in a session, I may transition between various frameworks depending on your goals and how you are feeling that particular day. While this may change from time to time, what you can always expect from me is a person-entered approach. Essentially what this means is that you decide the direction of our session and I come alongside you. I look forward to patterning with you whether it be to navigate challenges of depression, anxiety, gender-based experiences, life transitions, self-worth and self esteem, stress, inter-cultural experiences or you simply want to learn how to take care of your mental health on a daily basis.

When we are not in session, I am most likely spending time with my people, reminding anyone who will listen that store bought hummus is nowhere near the same as homemade, and submerging myself into different sub-cultures in my community through food, music and conversation!

If you think we would be a good fit, please contact me at hannah@thetherapyspace.co to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation! I look forward to meeting you.

Q&A with

Hannah D. Chamas

What is it like working with you?

When working with me a client will experience safe space to explore and challenge self in relation to presenting issues and concerns. The client will be met with empathy, compassion and respect as they share pieces of themselves and their story! This is the client's space, and I as the therapist will come alongside them with my knowledge and skill as we collaborate on how they want to use that space.

What do you like most about being a therapist?

My favourite part about being a therapist is seeing my client's discover strengths within themselves that they hadn't recognized before!

What are some ways you take care of your mental health?

In order to take care of my mental health, I make sure I do something I love every day! Whether it's reading one page of my book, going for a walk, or creating music, I like to remind myself that no matter how busy or chaotic life can get, I'm worth investing into!
