Oh Calgary! ( and the world!). This year has been like no other. While every year has its own ups and downs, it seems that during 2020, we’ve endured more than our fair share of challenges. During stressful times, it's common to experience emotions such as shock, fear, sadness, and even disgust. And that's okay!
Remember, it’s your counselling, and together we will find the right approach for you.
