Is This For Me?

It is our belief that most people can benefit from investing in self-growth through therapy. You may have a specific problem you are wanting to work through or an important decision to make. Or a mental health concern or trauma you want support for. You may want to work on your relationship or family dynamics. Or it could simply be that you want a safe space to explore your growth and share your experience.


Why Exist?

At Exist, you will not be given a cookie-cutter approach to your problems or an overload of general advice. We take the time to carefully listen and understand you. The hallmark of our existential approach is to honour your subjective experience and unique self. The support you receive will be tailored to helping you heal and respond authentically within the context of your life.

In individual therapy, we encounter you with openness and the utmost respect for your unique self, experiences, and life context.


In relationship therapy, we guide the two of you in communicating with empathy, honesty, and respect.


Family therapy includes parents and children, and sometimes grandparents or other relatives who are involved in family dynamics. 


Existential group therapy offers a powerful growth opportunity—a safe and understanding community in which to explore your goals, especially the patterns of how you relate to others.


Professional development is critical for counsellors, therapists and other mental health professionals.


Sessions have been going really well. I'm happy to have started this process. I feel that Cecilia is a good match and I like her style of counselling. 

You have a way of letting me feel understood.  This is a gift you bring to me.  I don't have to wonder, "Is what I am saying making sense?" as you just get it. Things came out of me today that I have never, ever acknowledged in my whole entire life. 

Thank you for your incredible professionalism during our sessions. I felt heard, understood in my sadness and my joy. I even felt interesting. Our sessions have encouraged me to continue my journey of self-growth.

You have been so helpful and supportive throughout this difficult time. I really appreciate the insights you are able to offer me, while listening and validating my feelings.

My counsellor is great. I'm very happy with our sessions. I'm so grateful to have access to this life saving service.
