Parent Support

 

Individual and Couples counselling can be a useful support through parts of your journey.  Grief and loss, stress, relationship discourse or breakdown are common themes that we support parent and individuals with. If you think you would benefit from meeting with a therapist or social worker please let us know.

GROUPS:  Being a parent of a child with Autism provides unique joys and challenges.  We believe you are the expert on your child and we know you have knowledge and wisdom to share.  We also see the incredible support that parents share with each other. Our goal is to create opportunities for you to connect and to build a community that understands your struggles and successes.
