A safe space for individuals and families to address emotional and mental health
Our counsellors provide a non-judgmental and supportive space so individuals and families can feel safe expressing themselves. We specialize in working with children, youth and adults who have experienced trauma and loss, but our counsellors also have expertise in a variety of complex issues including anxiety, depression, grief/loss, attachment, family relationships, and much more.
