Individual Therapy

  • At this time, therapy sessions are offered exclusively by phone or virtual platforms
  • Individual sessions are person-centred, meaning that the needs of the person seeking therapy are placed front and centre
  • Therapeutic modalities used may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness Based Therapies – although, often a blend of interventions are used
  • Please note that therapy is only offered to individuals 18 years of age and up
  • Issues discussed in therapy may include mood disorders such as Anxiety, Depression, or Bipolar disorder, and mental health challenges with or without diagnosis, managing stress, life transitions and personal growth, racism and/or racial identity, gender identity, sexuality, relationship with self and others, grief and loss, trauma from childhood or throughout the lifespan, intergenerational trauma – etc.

Group Therapy

  • Group therapy is a great way to connect with others with similar lived experiences, to gain support, learn from each other, and heal as a collective
  • Group size is typically 6-12 people, and may have one or two facilitators
  • Groups can be a more cost-effective way to access support, as group session fees tend to be less than individual sessions
  • Please stay tuned for updates about upcoming groups!
