Dr. Sarah looks forward to welcoming Dr. Leann’s patients and we all wish Dr. Leann and her family all the best as they await the arrival of their newest family member!

Why try counselling and psychotherapy services?

Therapy is seen by many as an avenue to achieve their goals in life, to navigate tough life situations, and to work through difficult and painful emotions. There are many benefits, such as gaining self-awareness, achieving positive change, and learning new coping skills. Clients can express their thoughts and feelings in an empathic, non-judgemental atmosphere that helps them work toward their goals.

To make an appointment for counselling, or to arrange for a free 15-minute consultation with our social worker, contact us by email at or give us a call at 905.829.0724.

If you are in crisis, please speak with your family doctor or go to your nearest emergency department. You may also access telephone support by calling the Distress Centre of Peel at 905-278-7208. These phones are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You might also have numbness in your foot. [Read More]
