Hannah Abiertas

From a young age, I gravitated towards the role of being the confidant and listener. My journey to finding my way to this career path was gradual and almost natural – I have always had a longing to help others. Beginning the healing process can be challenging but I would be honoured to be a part of the process. I strive to create a warm and safe environment through empathy, respect, and compassion.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Mount Allison University and am currently in the process of completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) at Yorkville University. I am from a Filipino background and moved to Canada at the age of 9. I am passionate about diversity and decreasing the barriers of accessing mental healthcare for marginalized groups. My background includes long-term experience in childcare, academic support, and hospitality.

I use an integrative approach with my clients – person-centered, cognitive-behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness.  Collaboratively, we can develop a therapeutic plan that best suits your needs. My areas of interest include family systems, depression, anxiety, stress management, spirituality, trauma, and issues with self-worth/criticism.

I invite you to take the reins and begin your journey to healing…
