Harbourside Family Counseling Centre is dedicated to the support of individuals and families affected by a wide variety of mental health and/or development concerns. Clinicians are Registered Clinical Counselors governed by respective licensure bodies who strive to ensure that the most up to date assessment and empirically-supported clinical treatments are available.

Harbourside specializes in the treatment of children and youth, and adults with a wide variety of mental health concerns, including:

  • parenting issues
  • eating disorders
  • trauma and crisis intervention
  • grief and loss counselling
  • relationship/interpersonal problems
  • mood and anxiety disorders
  • sexual health development
  • mood or behaviour dis-regulation
  • academic challenges
  • low motivation or not living to one’s potential

Harbourside Counselors provide counseling from a range of perspectives, including Interpersonal Neurobiology, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment, Family Systems, Expressive/Play Therapy, Motivational Coaching, Solution-Focused and Emotionally Focused Theories.

At our clinic we work with individuals with a wide range of concerning issues, which may be anything that stands between you and the goals, priorities, and commitments of your life. Many people believe that counseling isn’t for them because what they are experiencing is not significant enough. In fact, you do not need to be completely debilitated by your issue to benefit from counseling. Whether your concerns are big or small, counseling can often be helpful and can also prevent unnecessary suffering that may result from waiting until things get worse.

At Harbourside, we also offer well respected programs focusing on the social-emotional well being of children and youth, including Chi School (tools for resiliency), Superflex Social Thinking by Michelle Garcia Winner and SHAPE (a sexual health program for youth with developmental disabilities).
