All of the psychotherapists at KW Counselling Services have Masters level education and experience working with kids, teens, and families on a variety of topics. The placement students at KW Counselling Services come from Master of Social Work or counselling programs.


“Two years ago, I was a workshop presenter at the GSA Conference. Now I work for OK2BME and get to help organize it! I remain so inspired by the brave allies and LGBTQ young people here today. Shine on! Dare to dream!”
