Our In-Kingston and Online Team of Admins, Psychotherapists, Psychologists, and Social Workers

Meet Our Dream Team!

Often imitated, never duplicated, our dream team works together to efficiently help our clients with the concerns that they want to get traction upon like Spanx and your favourite jeans. Epic in transformative power, our process ensures you're matched with the best therapist on the team to lift you up and help you redefine yourself, on your terms.

 

Our administrative support team has trained with the intensity of university students cramming for exams, with the golden hearts of the most loyal puppies, and with the elasticity and flexibility of the Elastigirl! They will field your needs to the utmost of their ability, as speedily as possible, whist caring about you and your experience. They keep our clinic running like a well-oiled machine.

Our therapists are vetted for skill, approachability, and effectiveness. Everybody who works here is the right kind of person to have a coffee and share dad jokes with. It just goes without saying that our therapists also have the fundamental skills needed to work with anxiety and depression. They each also have their unique skills and attributes that make them especially great in certain niches, too, such as couples therapy, grief, anger, parenting, and of course, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

 

Don't worry - we promise - none of us are perfect. And, we're loud and proud about being gleefully weird. We don't focus on fancy work clothing or perfect hairdos (but we do appreciate good hair days) and we're not stuffy and overly formal. We just show up, ready to teach you a thing or two. We want to cheer you on, challenge you to bust through your obstacles like the Kool-Aid Man, and then fire us because you're feeling better.

(OH! In case this is also helpful so you don't have to tromp all over the website to get the info you need - the cost for a standard 50-minute counselling session ranges from $175 to $350, depending on the therapy provider.)
