HOW A COUNSELOR MAY WORK FOR YOU

     Families of all sizes and backgrounds are bound to encounter the occasional argument and household difficulty, though some incidents can be more destructive and challenging than others.  From concerns about substance abuse or other dangerous behaviours to issues in communicating and beyond, families sometimes struggle to maintain harmony and emotional health within their relationships. Finding a family counselor can help uncover, analyze and address specific concerns.  Whether involving young children or siblings, or incorporating extended family members, family counseling often offers families a way to discuss their thoughts and feelings in an unbiased and safe environment, encouraging the formulation of a stronger family bond and deeper mutual understanding.

     Professional counseling is available for adults, families, children and individuals for the purpose of sgtrengthening and improving relationships, family units and is provided at a reasonable cost.  Prior to a counseling session, each individual, couple or family will be provided with a comprehensive "sit-down - meet and greet" assessment, in order to formulate a treatment plan specifically tailored to their unique needs.

     No family is without the occassional frustration or challenge of togetherness and unity, but when such issues become debilitating or interfere with the well-being of the family and extended family members, the help of a family counselor may improve the overall health and happiness of the household.
