We offer individual, couples, family and group therapy.

Therapy

For over 50 years, we have been proud to offer counselling/therapy services on a sliding scale for the Jewish and broader community.

Professional therapy with registered clinical counsellors may address a range of concerns including:

  • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Loss
    • Bereavement
    • Relationship or Family Issues
    • Personal Growth and Wellness
    • Health-related concerns
    • Trauma
    • Stress

How it works

Clients are seen for the intake process. Fees: A fee ranging between $30-110 is set during the intake and is based upon client income from their notice of assessment.

This program is for seniors 65+ who are living with a fixed income and would like one-to-one counselling either in their home or in our offices.
