A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
The decision to seek counselling support is one of the most important decisions you can make.
I know, because several years ago I found myself in a position where I was no longer able to manage the stress of everyday life on my own.
Even though I was employed as a counsellor myself, I still had a long list of questions running through my mind as I looked for a therapist:
-Can I trust this person?
-Will I feel safe with them?
-Will they listen and accept me?
-Do they have the necessary life experience to understand what I’m going through?
-Do they have the wisdom to offer me practical support?
In going through that experience, I came to recognize that what I wanted in a therapist was not only someone who knew…but also someone who cared.
When the time came to launch Whiteboard Counselling, I did so with those dual principles in mind.
As things have grown, so too has our team and our span of care. We are now proud to employ a team of male and female therapists who offer individual, couple, and family counselling for clients facing a wide range of issues such as: anxiety; depression; stress; identity formation; trauma; abuse; spiritual counselling; codependency; grief; anger; values assessments; substance use; self-esteem; conflict resolution; marital counselling; career counselling; navigating life transitions; and preventative counselling. I am also very proud to be able to offer specialized care for mens issues as well.
Someone told me recently that our therapists at Whiteboard take a ‘caring, empathetic, but no BS’ approach to counselling. I love that summary and wear it as a badge of honour.
If you’re facing a mental health concern and feel like a direct, yet caring approach would be a good fit for your personality and needs, then please feel free to reach out.
The entire team at Whiteboard looks forward to supporting you however we can.

WHY THE NAME 'WHITEBOARD COUNSELLING'?
We chose the name ‘Whiteboard’ because it provides a strong visual that describes the approach we take with clients.
When we think of using a whiteboard, we think of words like: clarity; discovery; understanding; mapping pathways; gaining awareness; naming truths; and sound decision-making. Together these images speak to the heart of the journey that many clients take with us here at Whiteboard.
