Autism

People with autism face varying degrees of obstacles & roadblocks as they make their way into and through adulthood. Being autistic is still widely misunderstood in society, and while strides have been made, adults with autism often need help with specific challenges. That’s where we can help, guiding you, with a strengths based perspective, towards your goals.

Asperger’s Syndrome

Although Asperger's Syndrome is no longer diagnosed today, many still identify with the diagnosis. This is primarily because over the years, the diagnosis has been popularized. Today, the diagnosis has been absorbed into the wider umbrella term of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), in part to avoid ableist language. If you identify with Asperger's Syndrome, we are happy to use this language in treatment with you in an open and caring environment. It's a part of your identity after all!

HELPING PEOPLE LIVE THEIR BEST LIVES

FAMILIES & PARTNERS OF THOSE WITH AUTISM & ASPERGER'S

Autism, Asperger’s and other related diagnoses don’t just affect the person afflicted with the condition. The families, spouses, partners and friends of someone with autism or Asperger’s know all too well the realities of these conditions, not just for their loved one but for everyone who is close to them. That’s why we offer counselling that incorporates families and partners of people with autism and Asperger’s. We help by:

  • Taking a strengths based approach to treatment
  • Helping to set up relationship accommodations
  • Explaining social and emotional cues in a more direct language, in order to help clear up potential misunderstandings
  • Helping to create an environment where everyone can unmask

Our experience has shown that counselling can help a person on the spectrum to feel more confident in their skills, and to feel better understood by others. Please note: due to the pandemic, all sessions are now over the phone or through a secure online video chat service. Reach out and get in touch with us today!

individuals 16 & UP

Have you been feeling down, sad, in a bad mood? Maybe you’ve been quick to anger, stressed, or you’ve been feeling more isolated than ever. Know that you are not alone! Many Canadians have been feeling very much the same way. Covid-19 has added stress in all our lives and in many cases, has made issues we are already dealing with even worse. Canadians just like you have been scrambling to find help, but with the medical field currently overburdened, many issues have fallen through the cracks.
