Meet Sacha (She/Her)
Clinical Therapist, RSW, EXAT
Sacha Hamming enjoys providing therapeutic intervention through the lens of mindfulness and creativity. She has experience working with children and youth, women, families and couples in a variety of settings. This includes support in loss and grief, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, burnout, life transitions, neurodivergence, ADHD, conflict resolution and parenting.
Her evidence-based approaches recognize that everyone is unique and have communication needs specific to their experiences. She engages from a trauma-informed and strengths based lens. Through compassion and collaboration we can use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Somatic Based Processing, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy to support the healing process.
Sacha has travelled throughout Asia, India and Europe, and lived and worked in Toronto. These experiences have given her a strong appreciation for diversity and curiosity of others. Having a confidential and safe space that feels open and accepting is important to her. In these spaces we find healing collaborative space to understand ourselves and our needs better.

My intent is to have transparent sessions, whether it is in regards to specific goals or hopes that you have. We will collaborate in creating an open space for dialogue to develop an awareness of the presenting growth needs.
My belief in mindfulness and being present in the moment, come from a trauma-informed approach. As the mind-body connection is a significant indicator of a sense of wholeness and well-being. I will give opportunity to explore this through various art modalities or psychotherapy.
As a Social Worker, I recognize that we have all encountered power dynamics in relationships of various forms. Having awareness of this and encouraging self-advocacy is a part of how we will build a plan that is both empowering to you and develops sustainability in our work together.
