“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” - James Baldwin. Mental illness continues to be a taboo subject in many communities, despite the fact that it is a significant aspect of our overall health and well being. The fear that surrounds addressing mental illness leaves many people feeling silenced and isolated and can lead to physical illness overtime.

The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with women and their partners in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Counsellors
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a L1N adolescent counsellor these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent counsellors in L1N, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent therapists. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

L1N teen counsellors also provide help for troubled teens in L1N or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, L1N counsellors can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And counsellors in L1N can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L1N are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
