Counsellor Directory

This innovative membership service serves to promote business information about your counselling practice, specialized services and skills as well as the ability to upload a profile picture and business logo. With futurist trends heading towards a generation that seeks information online as well as a specific set of skills, knowledge and experience, the CPCA believes this directory will provide a competitive edge for marketing our member's counselling services across Canada to the public, insurance providers, EAP contractors and government for verification of your legitimacy. All members who are in "good standing" will be approved to list their contact information in the directory on an annual basis. It allows our members to login to their directory listing once it has been approved and make any changes to their contact information.

Your child is struggling. Let’s find a solution that eases their pain and gives them (and you) tools to move forward. Whether anxiety, self-harm or anger outbursts - all behaviour serves a purpose. By uncovering why your child relies on certain behaviours, we, as a team, can work to reduce their distress and move toward growth. I help children and adolescents learn to cope with life’s difficulties in a way that fosters confidence and builds trust in their own capabilities. My mission is to support and empower children to effectively achieve personal growth, to acknowledge and bear witness to the experiences of their life.

Sessions focus on learning coping skills, building resiliency, and exploring experiences and feelings in a safe, judgement-free environment. The use of Play and Expressive Therapy, as well as talk-therapy (for teens), allows your child to move through life’s challenges by promoting self-awareness and distress tolerance.

You’re looking for solutions, and I’m here to help. Reach out now to set up a complimentary 20-minute consultation to see how counselling can help your child.
