Each practitioner on our counselling team presents a diverse set of skills, knowledge, and experience, as well as a unique style and approach to therapy. Altogether, our psychotherapists and counsellors work with individuals (children, youth, and adults), couples, and families experiencing a variety of concerns, including:

  • Communication difficulties

  • Separation and divorce

  • Intimacy concerns
