Areas I specialize in when working with individuals, couples, and families are:

Relationship struggles (significant other, within families, or peer relationships)

Separation and divorce

Attachment and abandonment issues


Unplanned pregnancy

Grief and loss

Anxiety and depression

Life transition


Expressing and regulating emotions

About Counselling...

... a time and space to explore and work through issues and challenges with the help of a counsellor who can guide and support you through the process


... a place where you can be seen, heard, understood, and supported

...  sometimes asking for help can be the hardest step of the counselling process

About Me

My name is Karla Harapiak. I am a certified counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and have worked in the helping profession for many years, both as an international nurse and as a counsellor. I absolutely love connecting with people and helping them through whatever challenges they are facing. I believe my clients are the experts in their own lives and my role is to walk alongside them, creating a safe space where they can explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. And together, we can discover what might be causing their stress or anxiety, or be holding them back from a more fulfilling life…
