What We Do

The purpose of our centre is to support individuals in their quest for recovery  and to educate them about therapy so they may in turn educate others.

Our focus is on prevention and wellness and our psychotherapy programs are geared toward assisting individuals and families in maximizing their potential for a healthier, productive and a more satisfying lifestyle. Our respectful, warm and caring approach helps establish a comfortable and safe environment that promotes healing.
