How do I know if counselling is right for me?
What does it cost and what if I can't afford it?
For individual counselling services, the cost is $150 per session (counselling sessions are 60 minutes) and our life coaching sessions are $75 per session (life coaching sessions are 30 minutes).
We also provide scholarships for subsidized counselling services for those who are experiencing financial and other barriers to accessing support. To qualify, we ask that you provide proof of income and discuss your situation with the Director; Amanda Poitras upon intake.
If the above prices are unaffordable, another cost-effective and supplementary option involves our online group counselling sessions, which are various counselling groups facilitated by two professionally trained counsellors. Please contact us in the event you are interested in accessing this service.

How do I get started?
We have an intake, assessment, and goal planning process for every client. Once you have contacted us, we will be in touch with you within 48 hours. The intake process then begins with an initial phone call to discuss the presenting concerns, our ability to address them, establish the type of services necessary, and to answer any questions. The inquirer is then forwarded an intake package with detailed instructions on steps for completion. Once the intake package is completed a counsellor, who has been chosen specifically based on the needs of the client, will be in contact. Informed consent for assessment and treatment will be discussed and all questions will be answered throughout the intake phase.
The intake form is necessary to aid in the assessment process and this, in conjunction with collaborative participation from the client will provide the counsellor with enough information to cultivate a prioritized goals list, recommendations for treatment, and timeline with which one could reasonably expect to complete treatment.
