Fields & Flour
I'm Courtney Fuciarelli, a Registered Social Worker providing psychotherapy and counselling services in person in Hamilton, Ontario (and remotely as well). I believe that counselling doesn't have to be intimidating, or difficult to access.
I'm a mom of three little kids- and I know what it is like to be SO overwhelmed with life (and laundry!). When I'm not in the office, I can usually be found in the kitchen baking, re-reading my favourite books, binge watching episodes of Coronation Street, drinking tea and trying to ignore the mess on my kitchen counter.
I have over 15 years experience in providing client-centered care to children, youth and families, who face challenges and difficult life circumstances.
- Masters of Social Work (University of Windsor)
- Bachelors of Social Work (McMaster University)
- Registered Social Worker (Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers)
- Member of OASW (Ontario Association of Social Workers)
- Member of Canadian Horticultural Therapy Association
My practice focuses on providing validation, and building both emotional and practical supports within session. I also believe that change can be found in unconventional ways- which is why I offer the unique practices of therapeutic baking and nature therapy.
I believe that healing comes in multi-layered forms. Talking, walking, baking, through mixed media and art- all are valid ways to process emotions.
I want to empower clients to find ways to use psychoeducation in applications that make sense to them, and that fit in to their lives.
My goal is always for clients to build their communication skills and to stock up their own personal "toolkit" of healthy coping strategies.
Just because it helps, doesn't mean it can't be fun!
Join me in the kitchen and let's bake it better!
