What to Expect

At Rising Tides, we’re here for you. We are your partners in therapy. Together, we’ll explore new perspectives so you can gain self-awareness and learn new skills to be happier and healthier.
Here’s how.

First Meeting

We start with an initial session to see if we are a good fit for your needs and personality. We get an understanding of your struggles. If we think another therapist or professional can better serve you, we’ll be honest. If we’re a good match for your needs, we’ll discuss next steps and a plan that will work for you.

A Safe Place

Our clinic is a cozy space where your privacy is paramount. Where you can relax and just be yourself. Along with our counsellors’ adherence to our profession’s strictest codes of confidentiality, we have rigorous administrative processes in place to safeguard file security.

Talk-Therapy Toolkit

Every person, every life is unique. Our dynamic team is trained in a variety of talk-therapy modalities to offer the best-fit treatment to move you to a happier, healthier place. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

Backed by Brain Science

Has anyone ever told you your struggles are in your head? Well, in a sense, they are right. Your pain is real in a physiological sense. The brain is behind our every thought, feeling and behaviour. We educate our clients on how physiological processes and genetics affect your physical and emotional well-being.
