We Treat Individuals, Couples, Families, Children & Teens

The goal of psychotherapy is to help you relieve distress, find new ways of coping with your challenges, and to develop the “mindset” that will help you to obtain your goals.  It is a form of treatment where the client and therapist work together collaboratively to explore unhelpful attitudes, behaviours, and habits and seeks to change them. Psychotherapy is about learning about yourself, your capabilities,  and how to connect more mindfully. It can help  to resolve issues from the past, resolve inner conflicts, and release suppressed and buried emotions.  

Overall, Psychotherapy is an investment into a relationship with  your therapist where you will receive the support you need.  It  can also be an exciting process.  Our brains are wired in such a way where “learning about ourselves,” is linked to “feeling good.”  This is an important survival response to get out of the  “stuck state cycle.” With more knowledge and understanding there is more choice and confidence to solve problems and move forward successfully.

We specialize treating anxiety, depression, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, attachment deficits, and relationship problems.  In our treatment process evidence based, and cutting edge methods are utilized such Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),  Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT),  and Eye Movement Desnensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR).  Additionally,  we treat a wide variety of  issues  including addiction (substance & behavioural),  personality disorders, sleep disorders, eating disorders, self-esteem, chronic pain, and ADHD.  Our centre also provides therapy services for children and teens, as well as parenting supports. 

Starting Therapy

Starting therapy can be challenging and experiencing anxiety at the onset is normal.  Therapy is a process and it takes a bit of time  to be able to get to the place where you can feel comfortable opening up and sharing your story. We understand what it means to start this journey. Every effort on our part will be made to make you feel accepted, validated,  and supported  with the issues you bring. 

Our Master’s level therapists are  trained in evidence-based,  cutting-edge therapies which are designed to help you make sense of your experience, identify patterns that no longer serve you,  and learn the behaviours that will bring lasting  change. Our  mission is to ensure that you gain the knowledge, skills and tools to feel empowered to overcome the obstacles that you may be facing.

Please  explore the therapists profiles on the website, or call our intake department to learn more about them. Alternatively, if you would like us to choose a therapist for you then that can be easily arranged. Our intake team will discuss your needs and match you with the “best fit.” Even if you do not feel that you connect with the therapist, please let us know.  We will ensure that you will receive a therapist that can be the most helpful for you.  Please contact our intake co-ordinator Susan at (289) 500-8039 or by completing a intake form by clicking on the link below.

FREE  Online Mindfulness Therapy Programs for Adults & Adolescents

These programs are all individually based with one to one  attention with a student therapist.  After an initial intake session,  where your needs will be assessed, you will be provided  six, one hour sessions of  Core Mindfulness Skills integrated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you are focused on being very aware of what you are feeling and experiencing in the present moment. Practicing mindfulness can help you to effectively enhance you mood by  learning such skills as  breathing, relaxed and open  postures, conencting to emotions authentically, enhancing interpersonal skills,  in addition to connecting to  parts of Self  that are in pain with compassion and empathy.  Studies show that a regular mindfulness practice can reduce thought rumination,  decrease anxiety and depression, increase focus, decrease emotional reactivity, improve relationships, and enhance insight.  Our therapists can help you learn these skills in addition to incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) strategies  to help you improve your mood by creating more flexible thinking patterns.

Schedule a Telephone Intake Appointment 

Call or email our Intake Manager, Susan Graham, for your telephone intake assessment.  Susan  will explain the therapeutic process more in detail and answer any questions that you may have.  Perhaps you have a therapist already in mind or maybe you would like us to chose a therapist for you.  Regardless, Susan will provide you detailed information on our Registered Social Workers and Psychotherapists  and their areas of expertise. We will ensure that you will be referred to a therapist who is best suited to meet your unique needs. 

Please expect approximately 20 minutes to complete the intake process by phone. Your first session will be scheduled for you by the intake specialist. Ongoing sessions may be directly booked with your therapist or conveniently online. If you will be using insurance benefits for the cost of therapy, please have this information available at the time of the intake. 

Completion of Forms Prior to First Appoinment.  When your first session is scheduled,  you will  receive a confirmation email.  Attached to this confirmation/appointment email are ALL of the online electronic documents required for completion prior to the first appointment. These forms include the following: Consent for Psychotherapy Agreement, COVID-19 Screening Form (for in-person appointments  only), and the Credit Card Authorization Form.   We will not process payments at the office as all accounting and invoicing will be done remotely. If you do not complete the online forms previous to the session, the therapist will use your allotted time to help you complete them. 

Our services  are covered under most insurance plans. Please check with your benefits provider regarding your personal coverage.  PLEASE NOTE: Many of our clinicians  are supervised by other regulated mental health professionals under a “Supervised Practice Model.”  This means if you want to see a Psychotherapist but only have coverage for a Psychologist or Social Worker, you can still have the therapy covered with the Psychotherapist as long as they are supervised by the regulated professional. Please speak  with Susan regarding questions you may have regarding coverage. 

FOR ONLINE APPOINTMENTS:  If you are seeing your therapist via online video conferencing, our intake team will get you set up and ready. Our software is easy to use. You will simply receive a link to access the “virtual waiting room,” through your appointment  confirmation email. When it is time for your appointment, simply click the link and you therapist will appear on your screen.  No complicated set ups or downloads. All our documentation between you and your therapist are moderated by secure methods. 

Online Booking System

If you are interested in becoming a new client, we ask that you do not use our online booking system. Please contact Susan, or Intake Manger, to schedule your first session.   Call (289) 500-8039, or use the Request A Therapist Form on the homepage of this website. When you meet with your therapist for the first time you can discuss the option of online booking. Some therapists may request that you do not use the online booking system due to caseload volume and time restrictions. 

The Therapeutic Process

MEETING YOUR THERAPIST:  There will be no reception services.  You will be greeted by your therapist in the waiting room at the time  of your appointment.   Please call the intake department at (289) 500-8039  if your therapist does not meet you for your appointment. 

First Session with Your Therapist. The first session  with your therapist is very important. Your therapist needs to gather pertinent information  including your current functioning, background history, medications and other  health related information.  It is important to have this information available for your therapist.  Your therapist may also administer some questionnaires which may provide further information about your current functioning.   

Treatment Plan:  By the second or third session your therapist will have a treatment plan completed fo you. The treatment plan will include mutually agreed goals to work through, the underlying mechanisms  perpetuating symptoms, and the therapeutic modalities that will be used in therapy.   Your therapist may recommend other services  including workshops, group therapy programs, or other wellness services that may be beneficial. 

Duration of Therapy:  There is no set time for therapy. Our therapists work both in brief therapy models (therapy lasting between 6 and 10 sessions) or long term therapy (lasting months or even years).  In many instances finances and time are limitations. Our therapists are trained in therapeutic modalities that are “brief” in nature but also work towards accelerating the therapeutic process by minimizing or resolving persistent and distressful symptoms. Your therapist may recommend commencing therapy weekly, but then gradually transitioning you to bi-weekly and monthly appointments.   Empirical research evidence does suggest regular, consistent  therapy produces  better outcomes. 

Satisfaction in Therapy:  We want to make sure that you are satisfied with the service you are receiving at Newmarket Therapy Centre. If you are experiencing difficulties with your therapist, or feel that you are not progressing in therapy, we want to know.    Please inform our intake specialist if you have concerns.  If a therapist change is required, or if clients want to try other therapies provided by other therapists, we can co-ordinate the transition for you.

When we open ourselves to our vulnerabilities, we can claim our Authentic Power. 

Jason and Jodie  saw a vision for a “healing community,” in the heart of downtown Newmarket. This vision became a reality when the centre opened its doors in March of  2018 at 436 Queen Street, in historic downtown Newmarket. Jason, a Registered Psychotherapist, had been practicing for over 15 years in York Region providing counselling and psychotherapy services to adults, couples, and teens. During his career he saw so many people  suffering from distressful emotions that were based in painful memories form the past which had not been resolved. 

Jason made it a mission to study the therapies that would help people safely release the past in ways that would empower them and return their “core essence.” Jason met Jodie, a Registered Massage Therapist, who had a passion for restoring  the relationship between the mind and body.  Jodie felt as people released  pain from their body that their  mental health would improve and a greater sense of self would emerge.   Together Jason and Jodie are a pioneering a movement towards the reconciliation of the mind and body, and allowing our clients to feel joy of being HUMAN and being ALIVE!    We invite you to be part of the experience at our centre and our growing community. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about out therapists and services.  

The symbol for the Newmarket Therapy Centre is the three leaf clover.  One petal  is the mind, the second the heart, and the third the body. Aligning the heart, mind and body is not always easy, especially when we hold onto pain, trauma and hurt in all of these systems.  Therapy can be one way that we can learn to let go and wake  up to our true potential which  brings us back into alignment with ourselves and others. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out and contact us if you have any questions. Our intake team is ready to help.  We look forward to meeting you soon.  

All the Best On Your Healing Journey. 

Jason & Jodie

 Our Values
WE BELIEVE  in a collaborative approach to therapy where the therapist and client are authentic and transparent with one another. The most fundamental need of our being is to be seen, heard and accepted as we are.   It is no surprise that the strongest determining factor in successful therapy is  the therapeutic alliance.  Positive change happens when we become more like ourselves rather than trying to be something others want us to be.
WE BELIEVE  in an integrated approach to therapy where the mind, emotions,  and body are accounted for in the recovery and healing process.   When we are experiencing emotional distress our entire being experiences the pain.   Letting go of pain by changing our negative thought patterns,   learning new behaviours, resolving issues from the past, and  releasing tension from the muscles and nervous system all work together to create better mental and physical health.  

WE BELIEVE   in supporting our clients to transform their  defenses  (the way we block ourselves from living our potential) into healthy ways of relating to self, others and the world.      Defenses  get created when our needs were not provided adequately, mostly in childhood.  The pain of not getting these needs met such as unconditional love and  validation,  had to be suppressed and the “false selves,”   worked to get these needs met inauthentically.  By respectfully and  gradually exposing the original pains,  the Real Self  can emerge and vitality of the personality restored.

WE BELIEVE in empowerment through  personal responsibility.  Underlying much of emotional distress, anxiety and depression are suppressed emotions having to deal with our “unacceptability,” as persons.  We encourage our clients to embrace their authentic selves by courageously challenging the negative self-talk  of the “false selves,”  to accept  negative emotions simply as  underlying needs to met,  and making a commitment to stop the cycles of shame, guilt and blame. 



Easily connect with one of our therapists in the comfort of your own home or office using either a computer, tablet or smartphone. Expect the same level of care, commitment and support our therapists are widely known for. Research validates the effectiveness of online therapy.

Shame Can You Keep You From Taking That Step

By Jason Koenigbaur MTS, C.Hyp, RP

If you are interested in starting therapy but feel somewhat anxious about making that step, then reading this may be helpful for you.  It is not easy to open up to someone for the first time, especially with very personal and intimate  issues.  Perhaps some of these issues have been pushed down for a long time and there is a discomfort about bringing them up. Or maybe there is a feeling of being judged about discussing them?  I think these apprehensions  are normal. My concern however is if you feel  shame about expressing your feelings.  

Shame is a normal emotion   which helps us to revaluate our actions and to take the steps towards reconciling with others.  Toxic shame however can get started in childhood. When a child experiences a rupture in a relationship with a parent and is made to feel that it is their fault, then this is what creates a shame bind.   The child learns that it is not good to share their feelings with others because they can be made to feel that there is something wrong with them.   Feelings gets bound to shame and the child learns  to shut down their voice in an attempt to avoid any further shaming and rejection.   As an adult you continue the "shame bind" with all of your relationships by denying your feelings, needs and wants.  It is easier to focus on others needs and disowning your own in an attempt to make sure that all of those others do not discover your defects.  The "inner child" part of you grieves and longs to be validated, loved and understood unconditionally. 

Sharing your story is a heroic step towards undoing the "shame bind."  It can be undone. A positive and validating therapeutic relationship  brings light into the dark recesses of shame.  When this happen transformation begins to happen.  You might start to realize that your "hurt inner child," is leaving those dark shadows and is in joyful anticipation of being in the "light" of your authenticity.
