Stepping Stones Counselling

Kelowna –  Vernon  – Penticton


The Stepping Stones Counselling Group is a team of specialized therapists, social workers and practitioners. We are dedicated to providing nurturing, creative and flexible healing environments and experiences. Services are offered to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families throughout the Okanagan region.

Our Approach

Every effort is made to match you with a counsellor you will feel comfortable with, and who has the skills you require.

As a team of counsellors we can also work together and collaborate in situations where more than one family member requires help. Members of your family may be supported by various therapists or groups at our centres. Our goal is to provide services that support the individual, the family and our community.

Counselling Services

Counsellors are available at offices in Vernon, Penticton and two Kelowna locations.

Services include individual therapy for adults, children and adolescents as well as family and couples therapy. Counsellors have expertise in the areas of anxiety and depression, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, divorce or family transition, adoption and foster care, and self-esteem.

“With Your Family Every Step of the Way”

Autism Spectrum Disorders

The ASCEND Program specializes in Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD. We have a centre in Kelowna, ASCEND, dedicated to ASD related counselling and programs. ASCEND programs are also available in Vernon and Penticton.
