COVID-19 update: Our office is open to clients, but requires everyone in the clinic to wear a mask as per requirements for healthcare facilities.

Our group of Barrie psychologists, social workers, and psychotherapists provide a wide range of services to treat many of life's challenging mental health issues, such as depression, relationship difficulties, addictions, health challenges, trauma, and loss. This all takes place in a professional, confidential environment. We offer a safe place to work through your challenges in a supportive, mutually respectful atmosphere.

We also are able to conduct a variety of assessments for children, youth, and adults in our assessment clinic. Workshops and consultations for agencies, public safety personnel, schools, and other organizations are available, along with business coaching for those in the mental health field.
