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.
How Does Our Call-In Counselling work?

Are you in distress or having a terrible day? Is your child having a melt down or depressed and you don't know what to do? 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 text 905-531-6938 for immediate service, or contact us if you need further assistance.
Foster & Adoption Therapy Support Program:
Monthly Therapy Support Group for Foster Parents
Monthly Therapy Support Group for Foster Children
Phone Crisis Counselling Available in Real Time (no appointments necessary - get support at school, camp, and home - when families need it most!)
Tired of dealing with health care professionals that don't understand the needs of foster families, agencies, and CAS? Feeling hopeless from watching placements break down and good caregivers leave the system? We have the solution! Our integrated therapeutic program has 3 pillars of support, designed to minimize placement breakdowns and behavioural incidents. Exhausted foster parents and traumatized foster children are supported in ongoing monthly group therapy sessions, but what truly makes our program so ground-breaking is the crisis support that allows families to receive placement-saving mediation and therapy in real-time.
We work with both individual foster families and agencies, who can decide on the level of care that's right for them. Contact us to start your journey.
