Welcome to Quiet Waters Counseling & Psychotherapy
"Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world."
- Hans Margolius.
As individuals, we go through challenges and struggles that weigh us down and sometimes it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is where counseling and psychotherapy comes in. Sometimes, a little help is needed to help us attain our desired dreams and goals. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness, rather of strength and courage.
At Quiet Waters, we meet clients where they are and provide a safe and nurturing environment for deep issues to surface.
Quiet Waters is a counseling and psychotherapy service established on the biblical principles of the Christian faith - care and compassion. Quiet Waters offers the services of a Registered Psychotherapist and Canadian Certified Counselor who provides professional, private and confidential individual, couples and group counseling in a warm and safe environment that fosters exploration of feelings, thoughts and behaviour to enable and empower you as well as help create your desired future!
