What would it be like if you woke up tomorrow and you felt better? That is a real possibility since counselling is an opportunity for growth. Are you a teen/adolescent, adult or couple experiencing a difficult life change or situation? And this is creating anxiety, depression, anger, self-doubt or conflict? I get it. You are feeling stuck, overwhelmed or lost and need help. I can help you work through whatever you are experiencing in order to cope better and feel more at peace.

I choose to integrate creativity, life coaching skills and talk therapy since every client is unique and I want to meet you where you are at. Meaningful counselling requires flexibility, valuing you as a whole person and building a strong therapeutic bond which my style and approach allows. If you are open to it, I can help you achieve lasting change.

Based on my life experience, years as a helping professional and training, I can help you. But I understand it can be hard to ask for help. Each of us needs help at some point in our life but remember, you are the expert of your own experiences and have strengths to build upon. Together, we will build upon those strengths so you can achieve positive change.

Kara Pierson Counselling & Consulting's Groups

Supporting Parents, Supporting Children

This group is supportive in nature and is for any parent who has a child who is struggling with a mental health issue. You are likely under continual stress as you navigate the system. You may need to readjust your expectations and grieve for the future you thought your child would have had. All of these are difficult but totally normal but you may want or need some additional support. Realizing you are not alone and connecting with other parents struggling in a similar situation may help. This once a month open group can offer you support and connection.
