About Our Counselling Services
The Counselling and Wellness Centre at MDABC welcomes new clients of any age; no doctor's referral is needed. Click the "Make an Appointment" button below to fill out our on-line intake form. Once we review the form, our friendly booking staff will call you (or your guardian if you are a minor) to make an appointment.
All of our certified therapists have a minimum of a Master’s degree in their chosen field and are current members of a Professional Association. Our counsellors use many different types of therapies; they have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Process-oriented therapy, Solution Focused therapy (SFT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Positive Psychology and Mindfulness-based approaches. If you have a preference for a certain counsellor or a certain therapy, please indicate that on your intake form.
Extended Benefits Coverage
Our counselling services are not covered by MSP, but our services may be covered by your extended health plan. We advise clients to check their insurance provider's policy under "psychological services" to find out their yearly limit as well as to see if coverage includes any level of clinicians or only specific types of clinicians.
As a not for profit organization, the MDABC endeavors to make services as financially accessible to as many people as possible.
