Building You Counselling and Therapeutic Services was founded through our combined passion and mission to provide holistic, accessible, and inclusive services. Together, we bring a unique blend of diverse knowledge and skillsets through both our Social Work and Psychology backgrounds.

At Building You, we focus on providing client-centred, strengths-based, and trauma-informed supports for a wide range of challenges. We believe that we do not start with all the answers, and are not created whole, or chipped away at by life's experiences. Rather, we build ourselves piece by piece as we heal, grow, and learn.

We are grateful for the opportunity to support you on your journey.

Why try virtual counselling? 

Virtual counselling is an opportunity to access support without limitations. Whether you live in a remote area, have challenges with mobility, experience social anxiety, have children at home, don't have time in your schedule to commute to another appointment or just want to talk to someone from the comfort of your couch, virtual counselling is a great solution!
