Our Approach as Therapists

If you seek counselling for yourself, your child, your relationship, or your family, the most important factor in your counselling success is developing a positive and supportive working relationship with your therapist.

At CFCS, we understand your counselling process as a collaborative partnership between you and your therapist in which you both work together to:

  • Share your feelings and thoughts about your personal difficulties in a safe and confidential setting of trust and acceptance;
  • Learn helpful, alternative approaches to understanding and engaging with your private situation; and
  • Implement personalized strategies, tools, and techniques to effectively address your unique concerns.

Our Counselling Team

Each of our therapists is a professionally trained Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT).  They are highly qualified in many evidence-based therapeutic modalities and apply the most comfortable and effective therapeutic method(s) for you based upon your counselling needs, preferences, and goals.  To ensure the highest quality of ethical service delivery to you, all of our therapists are clinically supervised by an AAMFT-approved clinical supervisor and pursue ongoing professional development and training opportunities.
