Our Counselling Kelowna Services

The team at Crossroads Collective in Kelowna offers a diverse range of Counselling services and support in BC. Services and support include in-person or online ways of connecting with a counsellor that is a good fit for you. Our Counselling Kelowna team is here to connect with you via phone call or through our website so that we can support you and your mental wellness.

IT’S THE RIGHT TIME TO TALK ABOUT IT

Our Crossroads Collective team of clinical counsellors in Kelowna are specialized in a range of mental health and wellness services. This gives us the ability to provide both in-person Counselling Kelowna services in our space as well as the opportunity to have online/virtual counselling sessions with clients. Our Kelowna counsellors at Crossroads Collective offer a space for clients to open up and work through the different parts of their lives and experiences.

CHOOSE US FOR COUNSELLING KELOWNA

Deciding what counsellor in Kelowna is the right fit for you is an important decision and this should not have to be determined by location and accessibility. Through the services at Crossroads Collective, clients can choose from a wide selection of counsellors that work both online and in person.

We recognize the individuality of each client and understand the importance of finding the right fit for you when you are choosing a counsellor.

Our Kelowna counsellors each have their own different experiences and expertise. We welcome the opportunity to share more information with you about our counselling Kelowna services and connect you to a counsellor that aligns with your needs.

HIGH CONFLICT COUNSELLING 

The Crossroads Collective High Conflict Team is specialized in working with divorced/separated families that are or have been involved in the court system. The emotional drain and stress that the process of a separation or divorce can put on families are substantial and when this also involves court proceedings this can be an added stress to each person.

Often the stresses of a divorce or separation that has the court involved can feel overwhelming and unmanageable. As a professional and supportive team at Crossroads Collective, the High Conflict Team has training and specialized knowledge to best support families through this transition. Our dedicated team is here to support each family through this difficult time through Counselling Kelowna services and informed discussions.
