ABOUT US

Why Work With Kaleidoscope Counselling Collective

Kristie Brassard

MSW, RSW

Founder & Clinical Director

Our psychotherapy and counselling practice was built on the philosophy that we’re all imperfect humans with our own strengths and struggles – there are no bad parts of us, only steps to take in our personal journey to living authentically.

When you’re struggling with your emotions, feeling disconnected, or craving more meaning in your life, it can be hard to know what you need to start feeling better.

There are so many competing priorities that you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, or stuck existing in a space that isn’t giving you enough joy, peace, or purpose. We want to help tap into the inner strength that allows you to uncover the passion, confidence, and courage you have for living wholly as you.

Our clinicians have extensive lived experience and professional expertise. We use a client-centered, eclectic, and holistic approach to help you get the results you need.

Let us help you embrace your authenticity boldly & proudly by supporting your goals, identity, and life aspirations!

Kaleidoscope Counselling Collective is a queer-affirming, ally friendly, virtual therapy practice that is:

INCLUSIVE

Members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community often feel like outsiders who are being ridiculed, rejected, abandoned, or “othered”. Our practice aims to create a sense of belonging and representation for all clients.

AUTHENTIC

We model our beliefs in a way that develops a deeper connection with our clients. By creating a safe space for expression and vulnerability, we help you find your true voice and purpose that you want to carry into your own life.

COLLABORATIVE

Our therapists embrace a client-centered, eclectic approach, meeting clients where they are. We trust in their inherent wisdom & offer support, encouragement, and interventions to help tap into their inner resources.

OUR APPROACH

How Our Psychotherapy Works

YOU PICK YOUR CLINICIAN

Find the right therapist for you. You can book a free 15-minute consultation to see if the fit feels right between you and the clinician of your choice, or book an initial session right off the hop!

WE MEET YOU WHERE YOU’RE AT

We learn what you're struggling with now, what past challenges may be influencing your current distress, and how you want your life to be different. We want to hear your story, at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

WE DEVELOP A COLLABORATIVE PLAN

We work with you to understand your goals and dreams, as well as the individual and collective barriers you face. Together, we develop a flexible plan specific to your needs, wants, and priorities.

WE WORK ALONGSIDE YOU

Each of our sessions is a stepping stone to living a more authentic, calm, and content life. We adjust the plan based on what you bring to each session, and what you need to feel good about today and in the future.

At this time, we do not direct bill insurance companies. However, each member of our team is a registered health professional and will provide you with a receipt after payment which will include their registration number. This will allow those with coverage the option to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.

We understand that life circumstances can sometimes interfere with scheduled appointments. However, to ensure the consistency and effectiveness of our work together, we require at least 48 hours’ notice for cancellations or rescheduling. Appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice will be charged the full session fee unless extenuating circumstances are present (i.e. emergency, illness, etc.).

Therapy can be beneficial for anyone who is experiencing emotional distress, facing challenges, or seeking personal growth. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or in need of support, therapy may be a helpful resource for you. Our clinicians offer a free 15 minute initial consultation to discuss your concerns and goals and determine if therapy is the right fit for you.
