Adult CBT clinics - Spring 2024


CBT for Procrastination: Wed April 10th -May 2024 Wednesdays 6:30-8pm

Ever feel like it’s never good enough? Do you procrastinate constantly, then feel like a total failure because you did not “do the thing”? Do you hold yourself to a higher standard than others? This is the negative side of perfectionism. Perfectionistic tendencies do not allow you to truly experience life. It can completely paralyze you. It is driven by fear and stops you from going after the career you want, taking up new hobbies or interests, or having the relationships you want. You are constantly making sure that you appear the way that you think the people you are interacting with expect you to interact and appear, which in turn holds you back, and does not allow the other people in your space to be authentic either. 

Perfectionism comes with anxiety and depression. Remember that feeling of despair that ensues when you did not reach that unrealistic goal? Perfectionism robs you of your joy. Yet, another goal is set and the pattern continues. CBT dismantles these harmful patterns with evidence-based strategies that stop perfectionism in its tracks. CBT also teaches you how to make goals that are in line with what you truly want, and not goals driven by fear. This clinic will give you the tools required to unlock your authentic self.

CBT for New Mom's: Beware of the Momfluencer: May 2024 Thursdays 6:30-8pm

They say it’s the best job in the world, and what you see online perpetuates that belief. While it is wonderful, it can be hard (and it’s completely normal to think that by the way!). But that’s not what the influencers say. Or perhaps they say that, but then you look and everyone has a matching outfit and a green smoothie. You want the best for your kids. You’ve been babyproofing, researching every sleep training method, and trying to make sure everyone is eating at least one green thing a week. But when you go out (if you go out!), you’re constantly monitoring what you are saying, how you are interacting with your child, what everyone is wearing, and the list goes on. All of this monitoring and comparing leads to depression and anxiety. 

As you put these unrealistic standards on yourself, you also place them on your children. You are not doing this intentionally; this is learned behaviour. We picked this up from our caregivers and the society we live in feeds this. The great thing is, is that cycle can stop here- with the help of CBT. With CBT you will learn the tools necessary to release not only yourself, but your family from perfectionism, and self-defeating and limiting beliefs. We can even come to your local mom-group so that you can grow as a collective, and create a truly uplifting and supportive community for your family.

Tuesday Nov 7th 6-8pm -Dec 12, 2023



Inner Spark is an art-based group program designed to promote expression and emotional exploration, all while encouraging a positive mental outlook. During this six-week small group program facilitated by a Registered Psychotherapist and an Ontario Certified Teacher (Stacey-See Allied Health Tab for Bio), participants will use a multitude of art media to create spontaneous works of art following directed prompts, and will be encouraged to share their work with facilitators and peers. 

These creations, and the enriching discussions to follow are intended to foster self-esteem, confidence and an ongoing practice of self-reflection. Participants are encouraged to be supportive and non-judgemental, both of their own work and the works of others.

COVID-19 statement

Many people wonder what is a “normal” amount of anxiety considering the current state of the world. Frequent hand-washing and social distancing cannot stop the panicky thoughts that flood our day-to-day lives and can potentially trigger pre-existing anxiety, depression, trauma that people are already facing.

The real danger of COVID-19 is the potential to increase anxiety to such a degree that our behaviours become fear-based. We have already observed examples of nervous hoarding of supplies, googling every symptom, and more importantly disconnecting from and not knowing how to show Care and Concern for those most in need- our neighbours, friends and family.

We are here to offer you support through ONLINE COUNSELLING during this time, we are doing what we can to help. Some of you are familiar with online services and are aware of its effectiveness and convenience, while some are still new to this platform and can still opt for TELEPHONE Counselling.

Please contact us via phone or email to see if either of these would be a fit for you right now.
