A Centre for Growth and Change

Our centre exists to provide a safe and hospitable place for individuals, couples and families to explore the challenges of their lives and relationships.  We seek to facilitate change and growth that will lead to wholehearted living and thriving relationships. The therapists at Evergreen Counselling Centre have a passion for the work they do and seek to provide a sense of hope in the midst of pain.

Our Response to COVID-19

Given the increasing concern about the spread of COVID-19 and the recommendations of our governing body (College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario/CRPO) and public health officials, Evergreen Counselling Centre has made the very difficult decision to stop all in-person client sessions effective Monday, March 23, 2020.

Why Evergreen?

Trees and plants thrive when they have well cultivated roots, are planted in healthy soil, and are cared for according to their unique characteristics and needs. The therapeutic process is similar to the commitment of a gardener who tends to the soil, waters, prunes and protects so that the trees and plants can flourish and blossom to their full potential. In the human experience, there are often challenges in the roots of the family of origin as well as both external and internal obstacles that may inhibit a person or a relationship to be have the ability to move towards a life that is full and meaningful.


Evergreen trees are often considered strong, resilient, with deep roots and a strong core. They too lose foliage, grow and replenish year after year. And evergreen trees do best when planted with other trees and not in an isolated setting.  At Evergreen Counselling Centre, we believe in the strength and resilience of our clients and desire to cultivate the changes and growth that would lead to a connected and authentic life.

Who we are.

Evergreen Counselling Centre was established in 2012 by Susan Kay with a vision to one day expanding and cultivating a colleagial working environment. In February of 2018, the Centre moved to a larger office and grew to fill the space. We are proud of our team of caring and competent therapists. Susan is honoured to bring leadership to this inspiring group of professionals.
