Individual and Family Counselling


Pride & Prejudice provides individual counselling for 2SLGBTQ+ youth (age 12 to 24) and their families.

The young people we work with may need support with issues related to: gender identity and/or sexual orientation, relationships with romantic partners, family, peers or community, or the impact of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, transmisogyny and other forms of oppression (such as racism or ableism) on their mental health. They may also need support during a life TRANSition. We serve youth who are struggling with depression or anxiety, or confronting traumatic experiences, including childhood abuse or family violence. We help clients make sense of and build resilience to cope with a variety of complex struggles. At the same time, youth are encouraged to explore and embrace their own individuality and identity.

All of our therapists also identify within the 2SLGBTQ+ communities.  We are a combination of Registered Social Workers and Registered Psychotherapists coming from a variety of therapeutic approaches.  We all centere Anti-Oppression psychotherapy in our work and which centers your experiences based on culture, race, indigeneity, socio-economic status, gender/gender identities, age, sexual orientation, (dis)abilities, and spirituality.

Based on interest and clinical assessment, family work may be recommended to support families to repair and strengthen their relationships, create supportive home environments, and improve their ability to communicate.
