Why might you want Counselling/Therapy?

  • to receive support and hope during chaotic and difficult times
  • to have a skilled and empathetic professional outside of your situation help you to get a clear perspective on how you feel, think and behave
  • to heal from traumatic experiences
  • to improve how you feel about yourself
  • to increase healthy intimacy in your relationships and improve communication
  • to learn new and healthy parenting skills that were not modeled for you as a child

Who are your Therapists?

Fees:

While there is some range in fees from one therapist to another in our practice, these fees are consistent with community norms. A fee will be established through communication with your therapist. Some “Employee Assistance Plans” (E.A.P.’s) and Extended Heath Care Plans cover a certain amount of counselling costs. Your employer will have this information. Some of our therapists also offer a limited number of sliding scale rate appointments to assist individuals, couples or families with lower income.
