We offer a wide variety of expertise and services across our team! It is vitally important to be able to support you through the natural or unexpected peaks and valleys that life may bring. We have created our practice to address as many areas of need as we can. Mental and emotional strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness; it’s the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again.


The inability to control your substance use can understandably take a toll on all aspects of your life

Depression & Anxiety

The most common reasons for people seeking counselling. Although it is normal to feel this way, it doesn’t make it easier to live with.

Sports Psychology

High-level performance hinges on our mental fitness; the ability to stay concentrated, connected, and in control of the pressures of the situation.

Couples & Relationships

Maintaining a strong and lasting relationship is a journey that involves creating growth through empathy and learning how to fight smarter.

Anger Management

Anger is often interpreted as a destructive emotion. This emotion however, is quite often misunderstood, and usually has a story behind it.

Motivation & Procrastination

The lack of drive to complete or follow through with tasks is an indication of deeper underlying processes, rather than incompetence or not being good enough.

Career & Work Issues

Common work concerns include ambivalence towards your career, or navigating boundaries and relationships at work.

Trauma & PTSD

This is an intense – yet normal – emotional response to an abnormal event that is perceived as threatening to one’s wellbeing.

Chronic Pain

Pain is a sensation, which means that its origin can be physical, or psychological.

Cultural Issues

Cultural exploration extends beyond simply understanding others, but should include a deeper inquiry into how our own beliefs and attitudes can impact others.


A necessary process that follows after experiencing the loss of a person, an experience, an identity, or an idea, that is significant to you.


From the idea of wanting to end your life, or actually attempting to end it through a premeditated plan, suicidality can be a difficult and painful place to sit in. (If you are currently experiencing high levels of suicidality, please contact the Crisis Center

We are here for you and you are not alone. There are many other areas that we serve and not all are listed, reach out to us if you want to learn more or have questions.

Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness; it’s the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again.

What Our Clients Say About Us

5 star testimonial for strive counselling

" Will has been counselling my teenage son for a year now and we couldn't be happier with him. He has been an integral part of my son's growth and development during this time and that can be attributed to his kind and gentle presence and his ability to connect with my son. His care and concern for his clients is genuine and sincere and he always tries to accommodate us in any way he can. I would absolutely recommend him to any of my friends or family who are in need of some counselling. "

Sarah P

" I've been on a journey with one of the top therapists/counsellors at Strive Counselling since I chose to seek treatment. The compassionate understanding and trust that was formed has given me a renewed sense of optimism as well as a tremendous amount of room for self-improvement and self-discipline. Strive Counselling is the finest location for groups of all ages, especially young adults, to seek treatment and mental well-being. Strive Counselling comes highly recommended by me for everyone who is anxious to discover themselves and get their life back on track. "
