Sometimes you may need to reach out to a qualified therapist, but during this time of self-isolation, the need for online therapy has increased.

If you would like to book an online therapy session with me, please contact the Family Counselling Centre at (306) 652-3121 or send me a message through my contact page if you would like to schedule an appointment.
We are all in this together. Stay safe and take care!
