CURRENTLY ACCEPTING CLIENTS -- Welcome! Thanks for exploring my profile and good for you for taking this first big step in getting the support, help, or resources that you may need.  
My name is Casper Watras and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I received my Masters in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University in which I worked in a community mental health practice helping individuals with a myriad of issues, from alcohol and substance abuse issues, traumatic childhood and events, intense interpersonal/relational stress, as well as severe anxiety and depression. I also have a comprehensive background in evidence-based work that permeates my work as I spent time doing mental health research for the Public Health Agency of Canada during my undergraduate thesis days, in which I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology.
I work with motivated individuals who are looking to create change in their lives and specialize in working with men who are experiencing anxiety, depression and stress but work with any adult who is motivated in creating a change in their life. I have extensive experience working with first-responder populations as well as with gay men, two populations vastly underserved and often misunderstood. With an extensive background in community mental health work and with individuals who are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship or family issues, addiction, and work/life-related stress, I may be the perfect fit in helping you create the change you are looking for.
I take a practical approach with clients to comprehensively explore their lives, the factors therein, and where one's issues are stemming from; with this information we can figure out what can really be done about the situation. It is only by setting goals and creating a firm foundation of understanding of all of the factors contributing to a person’s situation, we are able to create meaningful change. In my practice I utilize many of the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and psychodynamics in my work.
My services are covered by virtually all insurance policies offering mental health services, counselling, or psychotherapy as I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the CRPO and as I am supervised by a clinical psychologist. You will find both of our names on the invoices that I provide you. I respond to ALL email inquiries within 24 hours and would be happy to schedule a consultation so that we can set treatment goals and learn more about one another. Please do not hesitate to contact me with ANY questions you might have. You can also visit my website to learn more:
