Our fees are often covered by extended healthcare plans. We are a team of Registered Psychotherapists, Child Life Specialists, and Counselling Interns, offering services in person and online. We emphasize the importance of the therapeutic relationship and we provide a warm, non-judgmental, and supportive counselling environment. We also offer Clinical Supervision for mental health practitioners in accordance with the CRPO.
We believe people are resilient and adaptive and that everyone needs help sometimes. We specialize in relationship issues, addictions, eating disorders, difficulties with emotion regulation, mood/personality disorders, trauma and abuse, grief, perinatal/postpartum issues, and anxiety.
