While psychological therapy can address some deep and painful issues, it doesn't need to be all about pain and suffering. In fact, it is often more about understanding yourself and others differently. It is about learning how to cope with challenging situations such as relationship dissatisfaction, uncertainty over the future, transitioning from one situation to another, handling strong emotions like fear, loss, or anger, and healing pains from the past. These universal experiences can be overwhelming. I can help you navigate them more smoothly and set yourself up for success on the other side of it.

Aspire Therapy is the private practice of Registered Psychotherapist Deborah Callander in Mississauga. ASPIRE is an acronym for A Supportive Partner in Recovery, which I believe describes my approach well. I specialize in working with people who cope with emotional pain, anxiety and depression. I believe that a full understanding of the sources and development of the suffering in your life is critical to healing. Coping with pain by self medicating eventually does more harm than good. If you've tried to make changes but life has become unsustainable I can help. Let's discuss the options available to you for recovery.

There are times when everyone struggles to find ways to balance their own needs vs. all of life's competing demands. When this balance becomes uneven due to additional stressors in our relationships, school or work lives, we often forget to prioritize our emotional health. This can lead to chronic stress and problematic behaviours that impact functioning. I believe that the adolescent brain is inherently resilient, and I also know that there are times when these stressors can have a profound impact on one's overall wellness. Psychotherapy can give adolescents the chance to explore the root cause of these stressors.

Are you feeling lost? Confused? Do you end up in the same place despite endlessly trying to do things differently? Perhaps you hear your internal voice saying, “Life is So Challenging!” It can be difficult to observe our destructive patterns of thinking. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed and unsure how to cope with it all. We develop these ways of being from foundations that may have been shaky, wrought with trauma, and from others perhaps unknowingly projecting their issues on to us. Our body then does the coping for us. We can unlearn these patterns, and heal. Perhaps listen to the cues from our body before we makes things worse.
