Youth Counselling Services

Overview of Youth Services

Transitions to middle school, high school, and and beyond can be a challenging time for our youth. Adolescence and early adulthood are stages of life filled with important choices and social pressures. Existing family and peer pressures have been compounded by the COVID-19 Pandemic and all the associated global stressors it has brought to the fore.

I accept clients from 10 years of age and up and have extensive experience working with both adolescents and teenagers.
