Facility Information

Summary

Counselling for children, teens, ​young adults (25 and under) 
​and parents/families. 

The earliest decades of life bring many social, emotional, intellectual, and physical changes. Sometimes difficulties arise that stress the existing strengths and supports of any family or individual.​

​Being able to speak with someone who knows about a particular age and stage of development can be helpful, and each therapist here specializes with a specific age group.

​​We offer brief counselling and consultation, as well as more intensive counselling options.
