Deborah Hubble Smith M.C., RCT-C

Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate

Specializes in:

Marriage & Couples

Sharing everyday life with another person is challenging! You feel that no matter how hard you try, you and your partner seem to be moving further apart. You alternate between bickering and frosty silence and have run out of ideas or energy to improve this on your own. I can help you and your spouse reconnect with why you fell in love in the first place, and help you develop ways to cope with life’s challenges together.

Adults

Life doesn’t always match up with what you expected or planned. You feel disconnected from your family and friends, even from your own emotions and goals. Life seems like a constant treadmill and you’re stuck feeling anxious and on edge. You’re so tired of pretending that everything is fine and beating yourself up over every mistake. I would love to work with you to help you connect with yourself and decide what steps you can take toward a more satisfying life.

Lois Ells MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

Specializes in:

Children & Teens

As humans, we weren’t born knowing how to deal with our big emotions. This is especially true after going through a difficult life event. These emotions are at the root of the wild outbursts, sullen silence, or tearful tantrum you see.

I help deep feeling children and teens learn how to make sense of what is going on in their inner world, to have healthier responses and improved coping skills.

Parents

As a parent, it is hard to know how to respond to your loved ones’ challenging or bewildering behaviours. I coach parents to better understand and manage a loved one’s emotional struggles, so that it no longer feels like these difficulties are monopolizing your family. 

Adults

I help sensitive adults map out what is underlying their emotional pain, guide them to connect the dots and encourage them to move forward in a way that aligns with what is most important.

Dr. Laura Connors

Registered Psychologist

Specializes in:

Parenting

Nothing in life will challenge and grow you more than parenting. Whether it’s parenting through the typical up’s and down’s, parenting a child with mental health or emotion regulation difficulties, or improving consistency with a co-parent, whether you’re living together or not, I use research supported, attachment-based interventions to equip and empower parents.

Child & Adolescent Mental Health

I provide treatment for youth with mood and anxiety disorders. However, parenting a child with mental health concerns often requires “advanced parenting” skills that many of us don’t have. While your loved one may be doing some individual work to learn some new skills, when a child has a mental health concern it impacts the entire family. As such, therapy often involves sessions with parents as well.

Marcy Daniels MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

Clinic Owner

Specializes in:

Motherhood

Being a mom is an experience like no other. It can be exhausting, challenging and wonderful. I help women find joy in the chaos and be more like the kind of mom they want to be.

Women's Issues

I help women who, on the outside, seem to have it all together, but on the inside feel like they are falling apart. People pleasing, over achieving, and constant self-doubt can be exhausting. I help women find balance, become kinder to themselves and feel less controlled by anxiety.

Marriage & Couples Counselling

I help couples learn to communicate more effectively and to build greater closeness, intimacy in their relationship. I also work with couples who are repairing broken trust and recovering from infidelity.

On The Brink of Divorce

When one partner is considering ending the relationship and the other wants to reconcile, traditional relationship counselling can be ineffective. I lead couples, through a series of conversations to help them come to a conclusion about what the next steps are for their relationship.
