2SLGBTQI+ Counselling

Our Approach

Sometimes it just feels safer to speak to someone who understands. Often people tell us that they have experienced stigma or discrimination when they seek help. We are committed to working in an inclusive and respectful way with everyone we serve.  

We offer counselling for the 2SLGBTQI+ (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, questioning & intersex) community by counsellors, who themselves identify as part of that community.  

Our individual counselling services are for adults or teens who may wish to explore sexual orientation and/or gender identity. We also offer counselling for families and couples seeking support for themselves and/or their gender-diverse children. 

If you simply prefer to see a counsellor who identifies as part of the 2SLGBTQI+ community, we can offer individual and family counselling for a variety of mental health and relationship issues.
