Our Counselling Philosophy


As your therapist we will encourage you to determine your own "answers"  through the work done in our therapeutic partnership. We will never do for you what you can do for yourself. Our style is psycho-educational  and holds to the philosophy that if you catch a man a fish, he will eat  for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he will eat for life.


The  help we provide is accountable to our supervisors and to a regulated  profession: that means that these services meet the highest ethical  standards. We value your privacy and maintain confidentiality as one of  our highest priorities. Because we know that your time is valuable, you  will receive timely services - no long wait lists. 

Lastly, because every problem and challenge is unique, the help you need will be personalized  and tailored to your individual needs - there are no cookie cutters in  our offices.    

Our Patient Promise


We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. Our approach to psychotherapy is consistent with  our core values. Our goal is to create radical, positive, lasting  change, and so we apply and blend counselling and therapeutic approaches  such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Reality Therapy. 

We are action-oriented and (as much as  possible) focus primarily on the present and future.  We specialize in  getting to the heart of the matter, problem solving, and strategizing  with you so that you can see results quickly.  

We work with children, youth, and adults. The theme of our office space is warmth and  comfort - we want folks to feel safe and at ease in our office space.  We also LOVE to play, and so in addition to more  "traditional" counselling approaches, children of all ages have the  option to enjoy play, art, or music therapy tools in treatment. 

If you'd  like to take a "test drive" and find out if our therapeutic approach is right for you, we offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation.
