Join our team

We are a growing practice in the heart of Coquitlam.

We are a fast-growing counselling practice in Port Moody, B.C. that is committed to supporting families in the Tri-Cities and neighbouring communities of greater Vancouver. We offer therapy to children, adolescents, families, adults and couples. We also run groups for grieving families, parents of twice exceptional kids, and adults with ADHD.

We are a collaborative, dynamic team of experienced therapists who value health and wellness, relationships, growth, play and fun.

Our practice is based on warmth, optimism, curiosity, courage and connection. 

 

Our strength as counsellors is the ability to create safe and supporting environments in which clients feel cared and deeply listened to. In our work together you can expect a non-judgemental and encouraging atmosphere in which you can rediscover what already makes you great. We will also strive to discover what lies behind the behaviours of your child or partner as understanding is one of the keys to positive change.

Our wish for clients is to provide practical resources, empower them through their multiple challenges, and to help them build a deep sense of balance and connection.
