The Counseling & Support Clinic (or simply "C&S") provides trauma-informed clinical services by skilled providers who are culturally aware and understand the impact of historical trauma and personal trauma on an individual and their family. To this end, C&S is committed to decolonizing our healing work with clients and re-indigenizing our services with cultural practices and activities that were already in place and used successfully by indigenous people to promote balance and healing.
This is a partial listing of our available services:
