Winding Road

Journey

THERAPY

Stepping into therapy for the first time can feel scary and vulnerable for some; like an adventurer taking the first step of a long, uncharted voyage. The road ahead might be hard, but you don't have to go alone. We'd consider it a privilege to go with you on that journey.

You Don't Have to Go Through It Alone

Virtual "Walk-In" and Crisis Counselling Sessions Available

Services Offered

  • Phone/Voice Sessions: (for all ages) Are you in distress or having a terrible day? Maybe you're in-between sessions with your regular counsellor, or maybe you don't regularly attend therapy and just need a little one-time immediate support. While high demands mean we can't always guarantee that we will have immediate space, we'll do our best to fit you in as soon as possible, usually within the same day. If we can't see you within a reasonable timeframe, we have a bank of crisis/virtual walk-in services we can refer you to. Book now online or contact us if you don't see an appointment available currently that suits you - we will open a custom emergency session for you!

 

  • Child and Youth Counselling (optional in Roblox): We use a combination of art and creative-based therapies, play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), trauma-focused CBT, dyadic developmental psychotherapy (DDP), and narrative therapy to help children and youth express themselves, gain confidence, a sense of self, and learn emotional regulation techniques (see our "Areas of Expertise" page to learn more about these therapy types). Using our customized play therapy room, young children can find unique ways to express themselves and their difficulties (such as by drawing, building, or playing out a situation or emotion), or choose to chat and play via a familiar game, like Animal Crossing, Minecraft, or Roblox. In our experience (and in line with research), utilizing these techniques has helped children and youth open up, feel safe and comfortable sharing, and look forward to therapy. While the youth is the main receiver of therapy, research shows that child/youth therapy is most effective when caregivers are involved. As such, we like to try to meet with a child or youth's parents for the first session, and then meet together frequently for updates and ongoing work (approximately once every 3-5 child sessions). However, we understand completely that for many families this is just not a possibility, and will work with you within the means of your family's schedule and availability to offer your child the best care possible. Research tells us the course of play therapy can be completed/lead to positive results within ~20 sessions.

​​

  • Group Therapy: We offer many therapy groups, including an ongoing creative arts therapy group that meets monthly, CBT and DBT groups (where individuals can learn how to better anticipate and manage difficult thoughts and emotions), as well as therapy group programs for foster children. Learn more about our available therapy groups here.

Our skilled therapists also offer ongoing individual psychotherapy sessions for those looking for more long-term support. You can learn more about our available psychotherapists here and more about the techniques they utilize in session here.
