Client Services:

Acorn & Anchor Therapy Centre provides in-person and online psychotherapy and comprehensive therapeutic services to individual adults, children, teens, families, and couples.

Our Team members have experience and training in the complexities of being identified/self-identifying as neurodivergent or "exceptional" (gifted, ADHD, ASD). 

 

Our therapists understand the challenges of existential thinking, heightened alert systems, and cyclic, intense thinking patterns that are difficult to express.

We provide neurodiversity affirming approaches.

Individual Children ages 5-12

Some therapists at the Centre work with young children in individual and/or parent/child sessions using play, art, and creative expression in a child focused space.

 

As with our older clients, we highly value relationship and trust with the children we see and your therapist will discuss confidentiality policies and best practice for younger children in the intake process and on an ongoing basis to provide the best care to your child and family.  Check our team profiles o see who works with younger children at the Centre.

Individual therapy 

Most of our therapists have expertise in working with youth and young adults.

Our online referral and matching process will help to guide you individually, or as a parent or caregiver to find the right fit.

Ultimately, our unique, integrative approach to working with young people allows for agency and self-advocacy for youth, helps the therapist and youth to connect and build trust (a key factor in success of any therapeutic methodology), and supports long-term growth and the ongoing development of healthy adults.
