Valerie Hamilton

Practicum Counsellor

Valerie (she/her) is a graduate student completing her Master of Counselling degree from City University. As a counsellor, her goal is to provide a space where people can feel seen, heard, and valued.
Valerie believes our relationships with each other and with ourselves are integral to our emotional health. With extensive experience working with children and families, a long-time member of the corporate sector, and a mom of four teens, Valerie understands the importance of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-determination, and identifies these as key contributors to personal growth. She believes in the power of understanding who we are and what has shaped us so we can understand how to get where we want to go.
Valerie strives to create a warm, safe, and supportive therapeutic environment in which to cultivate self-compassion, healing, empowerment, and hope as she works alongside individuals navigating through various life challenges, including anxiety, depression, disordered eating, relationship challenges, and parenting issues.
She loves to laugh, work up a sweat, adventure, and cannot pass a farmer’s market without stopping.

Cancellation Policy

Group programs depend on a minimum number of participants to run effectively and are designed for the purpose of completing the program in its entirety. If group members drop out before the end of the program, it may have an impact on other group members. For this reason, fees for the entire 4-week group are due in full at the time of registration.

We understand that unforeseen events occur at times. Cancellations can be made one month prior to the first group session date and a full refund will be provided. Cancellations made between the period of one month to two weeks prior to the first group session date will incur a 50% cancellation fee. No refunds will be given for cancellation requests within two weeks of the first group session date. Registration is non-transferable and not available for resale. Receipts will be provided for insurance and/or income tax purposes if applicable.
