As mental health professionals within this community, we strive to reduce the barriers and stigma associated with mental health.
We are proud to offer a variety of services at our clinic to ensure we reach each person in need.
Our low-cost counselling program is offered by our Counselling Interns - students who are at the end of their formal university training who require clinical practice hours in order to graduate from their therapy program.
They provide supportive counselling, use various therapeutic modalities and help clients navigate the system.
Our interns are covered through our liability insurance and all student practicums are approved by each university - there are regular meetings with the interns and their designated supervisor, Taylor Wells (Clinical Social Work/Therapist, BA, MSW, RSW) to discuss their learning goals and progress on skill acquisition while we monitor feedback on client experiences.
(We've been offering low-cost counselling since 2019 - see how many sessions we've offered so far, here.)
Taylor (far right) manages the Low Cost Counselling Program. Our interns (l to r), Kelly, Derica, Tara, Tobi & Emily.
The low-cost counselling program uses a brief intervention model. This means, we offer sessions at $20/each for individuals without insurance coverage and people who have financial barriers. (We have limited availability for children under 10.)
Brief intervention is useful for mild-to-moderate mental health and addiction concerns. It aims to provide a solution-focused approach to learning skills, strategies and processes to make sustainable change.
Should your circumstance change or you and your therapist decide you require further sessions, this can certainly be arranged.
Please note, we offer your sessions in person or virtual (telephone, Zoom). Please discuss your preferred method with your counselling intern.
We are happy to be serving you and wish you the best of luck in your mental health journey!
