Is your child or teen struggling with anxiety or depression? Feeling worried and overthinking seemingly ordinary situations, or feeling unmotivated and having a hard time getting involved in daily activities? We are here to help! If you’re noticing low self-esteem, poor confidence, trouble focusing, mood swings, or have concern for your or your young person’s mental health, we'd love to connect with you.
We are clinical social workers and mental health counsellors with experience supporting both kids and adults with a variety of life’s challenges. We are trained in and use a blend of various approaches including CBT, DBT, ACT, emotion focused and narrative therapy, mindfulness, creativity and play. Together, we can work towards getting things back on track.
There is hope, and we believe that things can get better. If you would like to chat more, we offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to new clients, and provide sessions in office, in home, and online. For more information, see our website at www.acorncounselling.org

Coping & Confident Teen Group

The Coping & Confident Teen group is the most effective way to take your teen from overwhelmed with emotion and self-doubt to: Learn practical skills and strategies to manage emotional ups and downs; understand why avoiding their emotions actually makes things worse, and how they can learn to cope and practice skills with peer support; how our group clients can gain self-confidence and a sense of belonging in as little as 8 weeks; how they can get the support and connection they need while still practicing social distancing and staying home!

More about this group

Creatively Communicating Teen Group

The focus of this group is about: developing social skills and self-confidence so that they can engage with their families and build new relationships; understanding how emotions show up and how to cope with intense feelings without meltdowns, overwhelm, or destructive behaviour in as little as 6 weeks; learning to express themselves effectively using a music and creative arts therapy framework; and interacting with peers and practicing new skills through an online group so that it feels safe, interactive, and comfortable
