We don’t have magic wands, we just know that psychotherapy works.
Are you feeling like your thoughts, feelings or actions aren't well under control?
Do you see others who seem genuinely happy and wish you could feel that way, too?
Let's check in for a moment, shall we? How are you doing?
Uh oh. Strong emotions are leaking out in inconvenient and uncontrollable ways and you want a break from the distress. You're feeling jittery or unsettled, nervous, panicked, depressed, or irritable. You may even feel it in your body - your head, jaw, muscles, or guts may hurt or no longer 'work' quite the way they are supposed to. You thought this stuff was just temporary, and if you kept your chin up you could work it out. But, now you're noticing a creeping hopelessness that you can fix this on your own. To be honest, keeping your chin up is getting harder by the day.
At Limestone Clinic, we use counselling and psychotherapy to help all kinds of clients from Kingston and across Ontario make the improvements that are important to them. Our awesomesauce staff are very motivated to assist you in the way that makes the most sense to you. We don't prescribe drugs, and we don't apply a cookie-cutter approach. Every client is understood as a unique person and a tailor-made solution is created with you and your particular needs in mind.
Once you call, our first mission will be to learn about you, your personality, history, and goals through the use of tools and conversations to determine how we can best help, and the therapist and approach that’s right for you. After that, your treatment provider personally connects with you through regular meetings to help you custom-develop your own toolkit and techniques to practice in order to start changing how you feel, for good.
Finally, you should know: We believe in effective therapy that doesn't last forever.
This means that if you’ve accomplished your therapy goals and don’t need more sessions, we don’t push you to keep booking appointments—you fire us!
(Yep, you read that right - we aim to get fired.)
Our goal is to teach you how to help yourself and create a strong foundation for your future, as quickly and effectively as possible. Our job is to get fired as quickly as possible (and we love it when that happens)!

How will therapy help me?
Through our therapy approach customized for each client, you will learn new ways of thinking about your problems, develop coping techniques and put the new skills you learn into practice. We believe that a combination of therapeutic tools, science, and a healthy dose of good humor is the best way to teach you how to help yourself and build a strong foundation for your future wellness.
What kind of therapy is right for me?
You don't need to worry about this quite yet, but if you have a sense about what you want we are keen for your input. Our therapists will get to know you and work together with you to determine which approach is the right fit for you and your needs.
