Suzanne Young Therapy
Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW, Psychotherapist
"We can not direct the wind but we can adjust the sails"
I have over 30 years of experience practicing in social work and have been providing psychotherapy for more than 28 years to adults, adolescents and school-aged children in various settings such as children’s mental health, schools, women’s services as well as developmental services.
I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers with many years of experience offering mental health counselling and psychotherapy in private and public mental health settings.
I primarily provide psychoanalytic psychotherapy (Advanced Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program certificate, The Toronto Psychoanalytic Society) and am trained in various psychotherapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness and Attachment theory. I utilize a Trauma-informed, Strengths-based, neurodiversity affirming philosophy in my work.
My focus and experience is individual psychotherapy supporting adolescents and adults through a variety of life transitions and challenges.
Focus on processing your feelings, and exploring your thoughts, attitudes or behaviours around a specific concern such as stress, anxiety, attention, relationships, school or work and learn more adaptive and healthy approaches for living. By utilizing various therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Psychodynamic therapy, short term therapy can help you develop new skills and feel more confident.
Gain a deeper insight in to your emotions and behaviours in order to improve your coping and make lasting change. If you are facing a transition (i.e. marriage, divorce,
parenthood, retirement) or conflict in a relationship or career, or experiencing depression, anxiety, or trauma, psychotherapy can help you understand your inner emotional world and relieve emotional pain. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is an insight oriented modality which uses the therapeutic relationship to bring to light your unconscious thoughts, feelings, and motivations for behaviour which may be connected to your early/childhood experiences. It provides a safe and accepting environment for you to reflect and express yourself.
Loss is a part of many aspects of our life journey and mourning is a process of accepting and adapting to the changes it brings which psychotherapy can support.
Psychotherapy can provide space for your to process your grief, reconcile the loss of a significant person or an important change in your life, and consider how the loss effects various aspects of your life.
