Thinking about Counselling?


Are you thinking about counselling, but aren’t sure where to turn? Our team of clinicians at Okanagan Clinical Counselling Services (OCCS) is both diverse and and skillful as their range in experience, education, and specializations ensures that our clients are provided with the best suited care possible. Our team includes registered clinical counsellors and social workers who are passionate about the work that they do.

Our counsellors specialize in a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, trauma, relationship concerns, family therapy, grief and much more.  The counsellors at OCCS are also experienced and knowledgeable about the unique concerns of the elderly, First Nations, and transgender populations.  We offer a 20 minute free consultation to assess your needs and provide direction for your next steps in receiving support.

Beyond individual, couples, group and family counselling services, OCCS offers a wide range of assessments and workshops.  Substance abuse, outpatient treatment, crime victim assistance, and views of the child assessments and reports are all available.  OCCS offers a variety of workshops throughout the year.

OCCS is also excited to offer online counselling services, along with evening/weekend appointments, a sliding fee scale, and 3 locations throughout the Okanagan for your convenience (Kelowna, West Kelowna, and Penticton). OCCS is one of the largest and most comprehensive counselling clinics within the Okanagan ensuring that we can meet your needs, no matter the concern.

Recently, our Clinical Counsellor Julia Gerlitz, who specializes in Narrative Therapy (see our blog post about what narrative therapy here) was published in the International Journal of Narrative Therapy and Community Work.  Our counsellors are the very best at what they do, as compassion, professionalism, and creating a safe and open space for you is our mandate.  Click the link below to read Julia’s exceptional article.
