River’s Edge Counselling Centre staff will strive to match each patient with a therapist that best meets their needs in terms of specialization, hours, fees and personality. Our graduate student training program allows us to offer lower cost services to clients with no insurance or the means to pay regular fees. If we cannot meet the specific needs of a patient, we will work together to find an appropriate referral in the community.
Why refer to a team?
Clients get the help they need, by the professional best able to meet their needs. Our intake process is where our relationship with clients begin, and it forms the foundation for effective care. We spend the time needed with every person referred to us, to ensure they find the right ‘fit’ on our team. If we are unable to meet their needs for any reason, we work with them to ensure they receive an appropriate referral. The care clients receive is enhanced by the shared experience and wisdom of the entire team. Our therapists have chosen to work in a team environment because they value collaboration and the opportunity to learn from colleagues. As a team, we work closely together, to ensure clients reach their goals for health and happiness in their lives and relationships.
