Home Suite Hope enthusiastically welcomed Mark Jarratt to its team this spring.
“Mark has been with us for a few weeks now as our in-house psychotherapist and thanks to a generous anonymous donor we are able to have him keep working with our clients for eight hours a week for the remainder of the year,” said HSH Executive Director Sara Cumming.
Not only is Mark and his expertise welcome, but HSH is so grateful to the anonymous donor, who heard that HSH was doing this and wanted to ensure that its clients continued to receive this support. The donor supported additional hours and a continuation of Mark’s services for the rest of the year.
Mark has had a wide array of experiences and understands that life has its highs and lows. Whether you are experiencing a high or a low, he believes therapy can be of service to all, no matter what one is experiencing.
With an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice and Public Policy from the University of Guelph, and a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, Mark is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
Experienced with issues such as: anxiety disorders, depression, borderline personality disorder, trauma, communication, anger, and many more, Mark has worked with people from all walks of life using a client-centered holistic approach, choosing modalities that best suit the individual.
His goal is to work collaboratively with clients to help them recognize their strengths, empower them to use their available resources, and provide tools to help them manage what is going on in their life. During individual sessions, Mark offers a nonjudgmental, compassionate, and hopeful environment with insightful and periodically humorous perspectives.
When not immersed in his calling, Mark has a passion for sports, travelling, mental and physical health, and music. In his downtime, you will find Mark working out, playing tennis, strumming the guitar, reading, or cooking.
Welcome to HSH, Mark!
