Welcome to Aspen Counselling

There are times in life when we are faced with challenges that leave us feeling stuck or in crisis. As difficult as these times may be there is also an opportunity for growth. The Aspen tree symbolizes determination in overcoming fears and doubts. Counselling can provide an opportunity to gain the tools and insight needed to navigate through this process in a healthy and supported way.

“There’s a crack in everything… that’s how the light gets in”

– Leonard Cohen
