STARTING THERAPY

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 mission is to ensure that you gain the knowlege, skills and tools to feel empowered to overcome the obstacles that you may be facing. Our 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.

LOCATION Our offices are conveniently located at 436 Queen Street, at the intersection of Queen and Main, in historic downtown Newmarket.   The office is easily accessed by public transit. 

PARKING: We have plenty of parking.  There are reserved parking spaces adjacent to the office building identified as “Newmarket Wellness.”  If you cannot find a reserved spot, there is plenty of parking within the lot. You can access the parking lot on Queen St and Main St.

 INSURANCE:  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 inquire with our intake team questions you may have regarding coverage.

ONLINE THERAPY OPTION:   The Newmarket Therapy Centre now offers online therapy via video conferencing. Online therapy is a convenient option if you are unable to travel to our office.  It may also be combined with in-office sessions with your therapist.   Call our intake department to learn more.

The process of starting therapy 


Call or email our intake specialist for your telephone intake assessment.  Our intake specialist 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, our intake specialist 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. 


First Meeting with Your Therapist. The first meeting 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.

OUR MISSION & APPROACH


OUR MISSION  & APPROACH OUR MISSION  & APPROACH

When we open ourselves to our vulnerabilities, we claim our authentic power


Jason Koenigbaur  and Jodie Lindley are   the founders of Newmarket Therapy Centre. 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.  

Please do not hestitate 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, 

Jason & Jodie 

Our therapists share the same common vision: the primacy  of the Authentic Self

When you are rooted in your your deepest beliefs, values and truth and living a life that is a mirror of them, then you are living authentically yourself. We strive to support our clients to live this way. 


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.
