LGBTQ+ Positive Space

Our commitment to diversity

Our office is a place where human rights and diversity are respected. We understand that each client presents with complex identities in terms of ancestry, family status, dis/abilities, socioeconomic  status, sex, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation.

Each client is unique, and we aim to meet the needs of each individual we serve.

Affirmative Counselling

Our psychologists and therapists provide supportive mental health counselling that is aimed at building collaborative relationships and trust over time.

We aim to listen and hear the stories that need to be told.

Our intention is to help clients continue to create new aspects of their stories in ways that strengthen and affirm a strong sense of both self and community.

Assessment & Advocacy

Removing barriers and providing support

Our psychologists offer support, assessment, and advocacy for kids, teens, and adults who are exploring issues related to gender identity.
