Natural Supports

Our Professional Counselling program uses a Natural Supports approach to support youth who identify as Two Spirit & LGBTQ+. We’ll meet with youth (12-24) to discuss issues like identity, questioning identity, sexual orientation and coming out. We’re also available to meet with the young person’s “natural supports” – family members or other supportive individuals – to help support the young person in their life.
