About

Expressive Wellness offers counselling by registered clinical counsellors and social workers, as well as sliding scale counselling sessions with Masters-level practicum students ($25-75 a session). Centring anti-oppressive counselling, we work alongside 2SLGBTQI+ folks, BIPOC folks, sex workers, neurodivergent folks, and poly/kink communities. We provide individual, family and relationship counselling. See our individual counsellor’s bios to see their specialities.
We are an intersectional group of counsellors that aims toward building a safer space to explore areas of importance to you. We focus on supporting people who have experienced individual and collective traumas/oppressions, and folks in which normative spaces don't quite fit. We offer in-person, online, telephone, and outreach counselling sessions.
Please get in touch if you would like to be connected to a counsellor or practicum student counsellor. Each of our counsellors have areas of focus- check out their bios to see if one person feels like a particularly good fit for you. 15 minute no cost consultation available in order to see how fit feels.
