EMILY CHENG

BA, MSW, RSW

As we all try to adapt to everyday life, sometimes challenges arise making it overwhelming for us to cope. This is especially true for our children who may have difficulty expressing their feelings and adjusting to life transitions. I understand the frustration this may bring to not only the child, but their parents, and family as a whole. After all, parenting is one of the hardest jobs!

I draw upon a variety of modalities that are tailored to meet the needs of each client to improve their well being, alleviate symptoms, and bring lasting changes. I am also committed to working with caregivers, in an effort to help them support their children, enhance parent child relationships, and strengthen their entire family.

I value helping my clients learn new and creative ways to promote their mental wellness in a collaborative and safe space.

CARLY CHARRON

MSW, RSW

As with many people who work in the helping profession, I was led here by personal experience and a passion to create a better future. I have experience providing in-person and virtual counselling services to support individuals and couples through a range of challenges such as depression, anxiety, stress, codependency, addiction, anger/conflict resolution, pain management, and grief.


After completing an undergraduate degree in psychology, I was drawn to pursue a master’s degree in social work because of the profession’s emphasis on the influence of an individual’s environment and other external factors on their mental wellbeing. This value system combined with personal experience and an interdisciplinary education allows me to bring an inclusive, compassionate, and non-judgmental approach to my work. Using a foundation of trauma-informed and strengths-based practice, I will work collaboratively with you to identify a personalized counselling approach that is comfortable and effective for you.

Age: 14+ 

Specializes: Men's Issues, anxiety & codependency.
