As a family lawyer and mediator, I work with many counsellors and mental health practitioners. Clients in crisis often need a direct referral and I have never had any hesitation in referring folks to Island Family Counseling Centre. The experienced and professional support provided by Island Family Counselling is the right framework for people to work from crisis and heartache to solutions and better health.

Over the last twenty five years, as a teacher, counsellor, school and district administrator, I have referred many parents and their children to Island Family Counselling Center. In every case, they reported back to me their gratitude for the professional and ethical support they received. The counselling support offered, by the qualified and dedicated staff, enabled them to move forward to a place of understanding and strength. Their needs were responded to in a timely, caring, and compassionate manner. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Island Family Counselling Center.
