Michael Kessler
MSW Candidate- Intern Therapist


Hey there!

I am so glad you have made this first step to reach out for support. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). I hold a Bachelors degree in Social Work from The University of Waterloo and I am completing my Masters of Social Work there as well! I am engaging in a practicum internship at Hope Blooms Psychotherapy under the supervision of Kelly Pardy, RSW, MSW. I will be offering LOW COST session rates for people without insurance and/or in legitimate financial need.

I work with individuals who may have concerns relating to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Anger management
  • Stress
  • Self-care/well-being
  • Personal growth
  • Intimate Partner Violence/Domestic Violence

I have 5+ years of community based work experience supporting adults from various demographics, with notable experience in the Intimate Partner Violence sector. As an fellow human, I too have experienced many challenges. I believe everyone experiences various challenges along their journey and I recognize reaching out and asking for help takes bravery, strength, and courage- you are not alone!
