Jared Dalton, RSW, MSW
Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist
Psychedelic work begins from the moment you begin considering engaging with these medicines. In reading this bio, you've already begun to prepare for the work ahead. To contemplate what is desired, what is possible, and what is needed. Likely you are hearing from some parts of yourself who are excited at the potential here and others that are more apprehensive or concerned. I welcome these parts as we explore and trust your inner sense of whats right for you. Each client begins with a 30 minute free consultation to mutually consider fit and timing. If we decide to proceed from there we will engage in 1-3 preparation sessions in advance of your journey. These sessions are meant to help cultivate an intention for your work, plan a ritual that will be meaningful for you, and physically and practically prepare for the experience. This will be followed by medicine work and integration sessions which could involve multiple medicine sessions and longer term individual or group integration sessions to maintain your growth and transformation.
Whether you are here looking to deepen your relationships, heal from past trauma, discover inner resources, enliven your spirituality or overcome obstacles in your life - I'm so glad you're here. If you feel a resonance with my approach, I would be honoured to partner with you in the process that is unfolding. I am a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario, Canada (and provide virtual support to individuals in AB, BC, MB, SK, NWT, YK, and NVT). I have been supporting individuals looking to restore right relationship with themselves and with the relationships, communities, groups and organizations of which they are a part. As a neurodivergent member of the queer community my work embraces and celebrates each individual's most authentic expression of their gender and sexuality and honours diverse communication and perception styles. In addition to my formal training in Social Work I have also completed post-graduate training in Internal Family Systems Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Trauma Informed and Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Narrative Therapy. I have experience supporting members of the LGBTQ+, racialized, Indigenous and (dis)abled communities and acknowledge the ways in which systems of marginalization and oppression compromise individuals wellbeing. I am particularly passionate about holding space for grieving hearts, recovery from relational and spiritual trauma, self-discovery of gender and sexual identities and existential/ecological concerns. I believe that any therapeutic process is a collaborative undertaking that starts where you're at and honours your values, experiences, and knowings. Let's connect and see what we can create together.
