About Us

At The Comfy Place we have one goal: to create a therapeutic space for ALL to heal.

Our goal is to create a truly comfortable space for all people: regardless of whether you are a child or adult, regardless of the struggles you may have now or have experienced in the past – you are welcome here.  

We believe that, done right, therapy doesn’t have to be scary. You can actually heal and enjoy yourself at the same time!

As your therapist, it’s our role to guide you and, when you need it, to challenge you too. All of the therapists here at The Comfy Place are committed to doing whatever it takes for each person who comes to us to get exactly the kind of help that works best for them. Whether you are a child, a teen, or an adult, we’re here for you! So, if one client needs to get up and do some Yoga – we’ll do it! If another needs to play with playdough while we talk – that’s great – we’ll do that too! 

Therapy here isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavour. This is a place where you can come as you are, be greeted with open arms, and then get whatever kind of help YOU need to maximize your healing and your growth.
