Therapy Services

Clinical Coordinator: Anja Vogels, 604.793.7215

Our ever-growing clinical, outreach, therapeutic programs provide short- and long-term counselling for people of all ages and backgrounds. We have specialized counselling programs to match specific needs. Some of our programs are referral-only, while others are non-barrier and open to all. All our counsellors are highly skilled registered clinicians with experience working in trauma-informed environments to support vulnerable populations. We also have a robust and growing practicum/internship program for Master’s level students studying clinical counselling. With the exception of our practicum intern students, our therapists provide outreach services in clients’ homes and in the community.

Our funding partners are the Ministry of Children and Family Therapy (Child Protection, Child and Youth Mental Health), and respective university clinical programs. We also receive funding through donations from the community.

Outreach Family Therapy

Our OFT program works with MCFD to provide short-term clinical intervention and support to families struggling with communication, parenting, healing from trauma, and other mental health issues. This program is referral-only from MCFD and Aboriginal Children and Family Services Society in Fraser Valley (FVACFSS).

EY Therapy

The Early Years Therapy program, funded by MCFD, is open to all Chilliwack families with kids ages birth to 6 years. Our EY therapist works with the family and their small children to provide clinical support around child development, psycho-education, play therapy, communication, and attachment-based parenting. Our therapist meets with families in an outreach capacity.

Youth & Family Therapy

Youth therapy provides dynamic, clinical counselling services to youth and their family around coming-of-age issues, trauma recovery, family dynamics, relationships, identity, and others. Youth therapy is primarily on an outreach basis, and referrals are open to all youth under 19 and their families.

SAIP

SAIP is our Sexual Abuse Intervention Program, which provides clinical support for children recovering through alleged sexual abuse. Our SAIP therapist utilizes play and art therapy with young clients to work through trauma healing. SAIP takes referrals from all sources, including parents, and MCFD.

Practicum Therapists

From September to June or beyond, our clinical program accepts new Master's level students in clinical counselling programs. Our intern therapists receive robust experience, guidance, and supervision with our team through working with clients from dynamic backgrounds and presenting problems. If you are interested in an internship experience, please contact the clinical coordinator for an interview.

Community Therapy

We offer free, short-term counselling services to the community either as a self-referral, or a referral from a community agency. These services are provided by our practicum therapists who are clinically supervised by the clinical coordinator. You may fill out the referral form linked below to send a referral in. Please note there may be a waiting list due to the volume of referrals for free counselling.
