Counselling Services

Welcome to Summit. We offer academic, career and general counselling support for students of all ages who are experiencing school or life stress. I also can assist with referrals to community agencies for mental health support.  My goal is to help in ways that are meaningful to you -  and never to judge.

I have attached some links that you may find helpful. Some are for adults/parents and some are for youth.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
