Hello and welcome! I'm Alex and I am a registered social worker and psychotherapist. I have a master's degree in social work and a bachelor's degree in psychology. I have worked in the social services and mental health field for 9 years and have been
practicing counselling and psychotherapy for 6 years. I have worked in emergency departments, mobile crisis teams, palliative care and covid units, outpatient mental health, and in the community as an outreach worker; I have seen firsthand the impact of trauma in many shapes and forms. After experiencing my own occupational stress and trauma, I developed an even deeper understanding of what trauma is and how to heal.
My hope is to provide a space where you can feel understood, validated, and motivated to move forward. I will work with you to understand yourself on a deeper level and to address root causes of current life problems. My approach is client-centered and collaborative, meaning I will ask for your input and preferences. My practice is EMDR-focused but I typically integrate other forms of therapy as well. For specific types of therapy provided and issues treated, please continue reading below.

Sellors Counselling & Trauma Therapy is located in the City of Hamilton, which is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. This land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. I acknowledge I have the unearned privilege of being a settler on this territory.
