Hayley Masterson, MSW, RSW
CBT therapist with Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP)


We want to connect most with loved ones when they are struggling with depression, and yet in these moments it can feel like you are a world apart. This session will provide insight for family members about what is happening for your loved one on the inside and understand the changes you see on the outside. We’ll look at the cycle of the depression that may keep your loved one stuck. Caregivers and family members will leave with practical tips on how to meet their loved ones where they are and strategies for taking care of themselves. As a CBT therapist with the Royal, Hayley Masterson will provide insights on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as an evidence-based psychotherapy for treating clinical depression AND as a self-help tool for caregivers.
